When we speak there is more that happens than words exiting our mouth and be heard by others. Have you ever thought that our words have an impact supernaturally. Let’s look at the Word of God...
First, some words are “idle”. Jesus said in Matthew:
Matthew 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
The Greek word used in Matthew means “inactive, useless or lazy”. These are words that have no purpose and Jesus further explained in verse 37...
Matthew 12:37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified (to render just or innocent), and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. (guilty)
It will be by our words that we are found innocent or guilty. How often have your words condemned you? When we speak it is too late to take our words back, the damage is done. We serve a merciful and gracious God that can forgive, but human nature is often not so forgiving.
Have you ever thought that your words change things in the supernatural? Can I words give cursing and blessings? The writer of Proverbs said, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” James penned:
James 3:10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
How can we speak blessings and curses in the supernatural. Let’s start with curses by looking at Jezebel. Elijah had just prayed fire down from heaven and slew the prophets of Baal. He was in revival and when Jezebel heard of what had happened she said, “So let the gods do to me , and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by to morrow about this time.” The very next verse documents the actions of Elijah...
1 Kings 19:3-4 KJV
 And when he saw that , he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beer-sheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there.
 But he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O Lord , take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers.
Have you ever had someone talked negatively to you and you have what you think is depression or just a reaction to their negative words? We need to understand the spiritual nature of these words even if they are said “accidentally” or impulsively. Paul wrote that “we wrestle not against flesh and blood.” Elijah went from victory to asking God to kill him because of the demonic force sent our from the words of Jezebel.
If we are a child of the King of Kings, we need to understand that these words can come against us, but we also can use words to combat them through prayer. We can tell that spirit (with our words) that...
Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord , and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord .
Our words can also be used to speak faith in God and it opens the door for Him to do miracles.
Mark 11:22-23 KJV
 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Our words matter In the supernatural. We need to be careful not to use idle words or speak curses against others. We need to speak faith and blessing. As Christians, we sometimes want to “warn” others thinking that we are helping while we speak faithlessness and cursing, but God is on a whole other plan. Even if those warnings come true, God will take care of His faithful. We need to be encouragers, not discouragers and faithful, not faithless.
Have a great week!
