Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!” John 11:43 NKJV.
The very first blog I posted publicly was titled words cut deeper than a knife. This was what inspired me to start a blogging website. Prior to that I wrote an e-book that is available on Amazon titled “Power In Words, Change Your Speech,” http://bit.ly/pwrnwrds I encourage you to download and read it, if you haven’t already.
I have always been fascinated with words, even as a young boy growing up. It wasn’t until I got much older that I realized the power and effects words have. The sad truth is that there are people out there much older and even younger ones, who still do not realize how words shape the environment around us. I cringe sometimes when I hear the way some people use words towards themselves and others. For instance, a few weeks back, I heard a mother say to her very young son that he was going to grow up to be a deadbeat like his father. I immediately turned around looked at her and asked her, “is that what you want for him?” she said no but stated that the young child was being stubborn and acting like his father. I encouraged her that regardless of how her son was acting, she should only speak what she really wants to see in his life. I explained to her that what she said to him earlier was a curse. She told me that she didn’t really mean it and that it was not a curse. I told her, she doesn’t understand the power of spoken words and I pleaded with her that going forward she should only, speak positive and beautiful things into her son’s life, even if he is being obnoxious.
The above Bible verse was Jesus calling Lazarus from the dead, in the tomb where he was laid and had already began to stink, at this point he had been dead for four days. Some of us think that there are certain situations in our lives that are dead. This may be because we think we missed a window of opportunity or maybe because we have tried certain things numerous times and it didn’t work. Then we begin to speak negatively to ourselves, “I can’t make it,” “am just not that lucky,” “nothing good ever happens to me.” Sounds familiar, don’t ever agree with any negative situation in your life, speak positively even if it doesn’t look positive. Jesus spoke to a corpse that had been dead for days and it obeyed him, think about that for a second. I know what you’re going say “Julien, am not Jesus, am just me,” the truth is that Jesus himself has empowered us who believe in him and his name to do the same works he did and even greater, John 14:12 NKJV. The only difference between you and Jesus is that you doubt, if you remove doubt, you will speak a thing and see it happen, Matthew 21:21, NKJV.
Begin to reconstruct and reshape your life with words that build up and edify. Only speak the things you want to see happen in your life. As a matter of fact, I challenge you to do this for the next thirty days and remember remove all doubt and disbelief and experience the power that God has placed in words. These are Julien’s thoughts and what’s on his mind.
