Speak Blessings not Curses.
Everybody has a place and a value.
There are no disposable people.
It is our privilege to partner in other’s destinies, liberate and strengthen and bless them.
Not to judge, criticise condemn, control or dismantle.
Our words are like weapons.
Destructive are the curses of others, faithful are the wounds of a friend to bless.
Words have power to build or break down individuals and cultures.
When we speak, whether in earnest or flippantly our words leave a good mark or a wound.
Words need the same respect and wisdom as would be the case of carrying a weapon.
They command a respect and responsibility.
Those who carry a weapon need to honour when to shield, guard and protect it from causing harm purposely or accidentally.
Know when to put it away out of harm’s reach or when to use it authentically.
God is graceful and loving enough to give us discernment.
We must partner with Him and stay faithful to His guidance not be seduced into the negative destructive spirit of the enemy.
We can be easily wounded from careless or vengeful words and even more powerfully pained if it comes from our own body.
We as the church are one body and when any part is wounded the whole hurts and would cause us to weep.
Our body is those who we are joined together with in eternity.
Our body must beat with the same heart and pulse as Christ.
We are called to bless one another and be healed from words spoken corporately or individually.
Biblically it instructs us to bless one another and especially those who curse us.
In so doing we disempower any enemy spirit that a curse may come from.
Whether the curse arose intentionally or from carelessness it has not been partnered with if the perpetrator is blessed.
The world needs us to rise up higher, be unchained and unshackled from hurts caused.
Throw the curses away and rise up to a new level of blessing in Jesus’ name.
Jesus gave His body that we might be His body.
As He forgave let us forgive.
Let us not be maimed or injured but a spotless bride awaiting her Bridegroom.
Let us be healed, set apart, as a different standard.
Let us honour and build each other up to rule as He does in His kingdom.
Set His family free.
Stop mangling each other but empower each other.
Allow the tide to turn.
The illustration shows the mouth, weapon of speech, with Jesus and love guarding and guiding it to use for blessings.
Four scriptures that come to mind:
“so that those who live should no longer live self-absorbed lives but lives that are poured out for him—the one who died for us and now lives again. So then, from now on, we have a new perspective that refuses to evaluate people merely by their outward appearances. For that’s how we once viewed the Anointed One, but no longer do we see him with limited human insight.”2 Corinthians 5:15-16 TPT
Recognise the value of every person and continually show love to every believer. Live your lives with great reverence and in holy awe of God. Honor your rulers.”1 Peter 2:17 TPT
“In order to honor the Lord, you must respect and defer to the authority of every human institution, whether it be the highest ruler for it is God’s will for you to silence the ignorance of foolish people by doing what is right.”1 Peter 2:13, 15 TPT
“Live honorable lives as you mix with unbelievers, even though they accuse you of being evildoers. For they will see your beautiful works and have a reason to glorify God in the day he visits us.”1 Peter 2:12 TPT
