Topic: “Think, Then Speak”
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Luke 6:45
A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
Here is a story for you. A donkey fell into a well. Realizing it was trapped, it cried out for hours. The more it cried, the further down it sank. A stranger passing by looked down the well, and he reckoned the donkey was not worth saving. He decided to shovel dirt on the donkey and put it out of its misery.
When the donkey realized it was being buried alive, it cried even more. After a while, realizing the situation was growing worse, it quieted down. Instead of crying, it began to shake off each shovel of dirt and use it to boost itself higher and higher until it stepped right out of the well.
Your life today is a result of the words you spoke yesterday. Words used wrongly can become a trap for you. That is why it is better to be a person of few words rather than speak negative words that can bury you alive. When life’s circumstances seem to throw dirt on you, don’t cry about it.
Instead, use your words to change your environment for the better. If negative words have landed you in a trap, it’s not too late to turn things around. Quiet down. Choose your words carefully, and use them to boost yourself in life.
I am the architect of my life, and my words are the blueprint that I use to build. Right now, as I speak, I am being raised to another level. Favour is increasing in my life. My problems are employed for my promotion. My setback is a setup for my success. I rise above every circumstance because resurrection power is working inside me. Hallelujah
