Growing up, some used to say, “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can’t”.
It may not break anything, but it cuts like a knife or better yet a sword, some cut so deep it leaves permanent scars or wounds, some people camouflage it, some overcome it, some allow it to ruin their lives, while the strong, and wise ones use it to catapult them to success. And there are those of us who replace it with Gods word, which can be good or bad. This all depends on a few things:
(1) Is it enticing, and beguiling words that makes you feel good on sunday, and horrible the rest of the week,(1 Corinthians 2:4; Colossians 2:4)
(2)Are they words, which mans wisdom teaches, or what the Holy Spirit teaches, (1 Corinthians 2:13).We must also note that the natural man can’t receive the things of the spirit of God, because it’s foolishness to him, and Gods words are spiritually discerned,1 Corinthians 2:14.
(3) True Christians know that,”The word of God is quick, powerful, and sharper than any two – edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul, spirit, joints, marrow, and a discerner of thoughts and intent of the heart”. Now that’s dunamis(explosive) power in the word of God.
Jesus used words to cast out spirits(Matthew 8:16;Luke 4:32-36).So people I implore you, lets use words to edify, prophecy, comfort, exhort, love ,etc..to bind the enemy, and loose Godly blessings. You can find these in, Acts 13:15 ;1 Thessalonians 4:18 ;1 John 3:18; 2 Peter 1:19.
Gods word will not pass away (Matthew 24:35) so allow the word of Christ to dwell in you richly,Colossians 3:16.

I pray in the Name of Jesus that His engrafted word, will let you be a doer and not just a hearer, may His grace and mercies be yours to guide you in, or on the path of righteousness today, before it’s too late. I give all honor, glory, thanks, and praise to God for using me to deliver His message in Jesus Name, amen.
