Words have real power

It has been said that words are vessels to carry thoughts. This short post helps show their power.

James A. Hatt

Words are not simply sounds caused by air passing through our larynx. Words have real power. God spoke the world into being by the power of His words (Hebrews 11:3), and we are in His image in part because of the power we have with words. Words do more than convey information. The power of our words can actually destroy one’s spirit, even stir up hatred and violence. They not only exacerbate wounds but inflict them directly. Of all the creatures on this planet, only man has the ability to communicate through the spoken word. The power to use words is a unique and powerful gift from God.

The most important thing is that Jesus Christ is the Lord of my life. I am a biblical ("young earth") creationists that upholds the truth, inerrancy, and authority of the Bible. Science is fascinating and fun, and theology is a growth process. I will not lay claim to Calvinist or Arminian, and have actually been hated for that.

  1. Words are indeed a powerful gift from God. They can heal or destroy. The enemy will try to twist our words and stir up misunderstanding, hurt feelings, and division. Let’s pray every day that our words will come through the filter of God’s will and be heard (or read) as God intends.
