How important it is for us to understand the relevance of words for building and making manifest your life’s purpose and hope. Since words form the supernatural structure of your future, you can paint a picture of your life’s purpose with words.
Words can either make you or break you; they can be sent forth out of your mouth to bring forth blessing or cursing. Proverb 18:21, says, ” Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof “. The words that are coming out of your mouth will paint a portrait of victory or defeat in your life.
Choose carefully the words you speak; consider to not let them be impulsive statements which tumble out at circumstantial provocation. Too many people tout it a virtue, a cover of straight forwardness, to speak whatever is on their mind. However, when the mind is renewed, it will learn to speak those things that God speaks about us. Jesus declares in Matthew 12:37, ” For by thy words thou shall be justified, and by thy words thou shall be condemned “.
Painting a portrait of your life’s purpose with words entails using those words as the spiritual color elements which make up the composite image of the life you envision. Those words, the color elements, become real in the spirit.
And as you continue to apply those words to the canvass of your life, they become manifest in the natural. Jesus put it this way, ” Whosoever…shall believe that those things which he says shall come to pass, he shall have whatsoever he says” (Mark 11:23). As the Centurion responded to Jesus, “say the word only”, and you shall have the most beautiful portrait of your life’s purpose.
