Eating Our Own Words

Life will never get better before Jesus gets back. In fact, the Bible tells us it will get worse. I recently read the majority of our illnesses are the stress we are dealing with. Stress makes us think we cannot handle life. Our thoughts and words affect our health because our attitudes shows up in our bodies. Proverbs 18: 21, "The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit." Change your words and change your life. Stress is caused by what's going on inside of us not outside of us.

God says we reap what we sow. When we see God, we reap mercy. 1We are told that the way we judge others is how we will be judged. Matthew 7: 2, "For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." Give and it will be given to you. Our thoughts are seeds and we think about 6000 thoughts a day. Are our thoughts negative when in traffic? When at work? When watching the news? When dealing with difficult people? Are we worrying about things from the past that only God can fix? Are we worrying about things from the future that may not come to pass? Where the mind goes the man will follow.

Romans 12 says we will never experience what God has for us unless our minds are transformed. Because there is power of life and death in the tongue, we eat our own words! David tells us when we are in trouble seek the Lord. Matthew 11: 28, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." When we dwell in God's Presence our head is lifted. Proverbs 14: 30, "A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones." God gives us peace. John 14: 27, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."
