Living Up Or Down

"Most people will rise up to how you treat them,
and what you say to them or over them.'
Candace Johnson
Bethel Church

There it is again....word power. 

If we criticize and put down others......if we speak negative things over them.....if we talk badly about others whether they are around to hear or not?  We are speaking against what God tells us in scripture. 

Children will live up to or down to what we speak over them.  They are shaped by our words.  They are shaped by our actions.  They are shaped when our words don't match our actions and when they do.   God holds children in high regard, and so should we. 

As adults we are affected by what others say about us and over us, but we need not be.  We can release their words and embrace God's.  In God's eyes we are enough.  We are His beloved.  We are sons and daughters of the King.  God delights in us and rejoices over us in singing. He loves us with a perfect lovc. 

Those words have power in our lives.  They give us courage to live up to them.  Let our words do the same.  Word power.
