There is POWER in words! 


“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”  — Proverbs 18:21 


A very interesting scientific experiment in Japan with schoolchildren participants attests to the power of words, good or bad.

Two identical jars were filled with cooked rice and labeled. 

To one jar, the children were to say kind, nurturing words.  But to the other jar, they were to say negative things such as “you fool!”. 

Each day, they said these things to the respective jars.  After a few days, the results were astonishing.   

The rice in the jar which received the verbal insults had turned sooty gray and moldy. 

However, the rice in the jar to which had been spoken verbal compliments and kind words maintained a light, creamy color, with no sign of decay. 

Likewise, as Proverbs 18:21 proclaims, we can speak to our situations, either with words of death, or with words of life.  Either we can lament and complain about our lot in life, or we can speak words of encouragement and blessing to ourselves and others. 

The Bible mentions a time when David's own men were planning to stone him to death over the loss of their families.  Yet, David  strengthened (encouraged) himself in the LORD, even in the most difficult of circumstances (1 Samuel 30:6). 

We have a decision to make.  May we make the right choice and forsake words of death and instead, speak words of LIFE, starting today!

  Affirmation of Faith: 



The following was adapted from an affirmation from Rev. Kenny Foreman, Senior Pastor, Cathedral of Faith in San Jose, Calif.: 



"This is the day the Lord has made; 

I will REJOICE and be glad in it! 

For great is our God, 

and greatly is He to be PRAISED. 


I'm an heir with God

and a JOINT-HEIR with Jesus Christ, 

and I am seated in heavenly places with Him. 


NO WEAPON that's formed against me shall prosper. 

The weapons of my warfare  

they're not carnal, 

but they are MIGHTY through God 

to the pulling down of enemy strongholds. 

I am MORE than a conqueror. 


because I walk by FAITH and not by sight. 

And GREATER is HE that is within me, 

than he that is in the world."
