God never created us to live depressed, defeated, guilty, unwanted, condemned, disappointed, shameful, unhappy, unworthy lives.
We rather choose to be like that. Many people don’t know how powerful they are and have belittled themselves and settled for such things. Many people don’t know that whatever they are going through in life is as a result of their choices.
When God was creating this world, He spoke things and they came into existence. “Then God said, “Let there be light.” And light appeared” – Genesis 1:3 (TLB). But when it came to creating human beings, God didn’t command us to appear. Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness, and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the livestock, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”- Genesis 1:26 (MEV).
Bible went on to say in Genesis 2:7 (MEV) “Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being”. Man inherited the Spirit of God, and therefore whatever we say with our mouth has the power to come to pass. This is why Jesus said to His disciples “For truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, he will have whatever he says” – Mark 11:23 (MEV).
This is how powerful you are as a human being. So the question is why do you say bad words to yourself? Why do you curse yourself? Why do you kill yourself? Why do you fail yourself? Why do you disappoint yourself? Anytime you say you can’t, that is it, you can’t. Someone tells me, “Counselor I want to quit this bad relationship but I can’t. My answer is, how can you when you have declared you can’t.
You have locked the door, kept the key in your pocket, and keep asking me for the key; how can I give you that? Anytime you think or say you will fail the examination, bear in mind, no demon is behind it, you just want to fail. Anytime you say ‘this sickness is killing me or will kill me’, just bear in mind, you want to die. You can’t speak negative and expect the positive to happen. You can’t sow curses and want to harvest blessings.
A lot of the people who died were killed by themselves and not any other person or illness. Most people, who are failures today in society, chose to be that due to the bad words they confessed and declared each day.
People are drinking words seasoned with poison each day and want to live happily? You will surely die. Now that you know who you are, you know what to do. You have no reason to cry or get depressed because someone hurt you, don’t waste your precious tears on them, get emotional and say bad words to yourself. For if you do, your words will come to pass. Rather smile and say “Thank you for giving me the chance to find a better life and someone better than you”
Our lives are not made worse by the bad words we hear from people; what we accept and say to ourselves is what defines us. It is what makes us. Understand pains don’t come your way to make you weaker or kill you, it comes to make you a stronger person. Fear doesn’t come to scare you but rather to make you braver. The heartbreaks and disappointments we go through don’t come to break us but to make us wiser. Become who you want to be and not what people put you through.
In conclusion “Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose” – Proverbs 18:21 (MSG).
