Overcoming Negative Words.
(Amplified) Proverbs 18:20 A man’s self shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; and with the consequence of his words he must be satisfied [whether good or evil].
Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life].
Words are seeds that we sow which produce fruit. Our lives are products of those seeds. If we are going to live a victorious and abundant life, we must guard our words. We must plant good seed.
We must realize that we have been given the most important force in life words, and when we speak them, we can bless our lives or curse our lives. No one has the power to do this unless you rehearse the negative words. When you have been told something negative your response should be what does the word of God say, concerning that issue.
