Words are more powerful than we realize, words have the power of life or death in them. Our words are either building people up or tearing them down, there is literally no inbetween. Words are what created everything we see. Genesis 1 says, God spoke and it was. We are created in the image of God and our words have power, life giving power or death destroying power. It doesn’t matter the situation that caused words to come out, if they release death, death is seeded and if they release life, life is seeded. Seeds grow and either produce life or death in people.
It is amazing how many people think if you are a life speaker you are not realistic about what is happening. The truth is, when you know the power your words carry you do not echo the narrative of death and destruction and call it information sharing, you reverse the curse of death and speak life into every situation. Everyone of us is a manifestation of words. Words others have spoken over us and words we have echoed based on what others have said. We must get a revelation of how powerful our words are and how powerful the words we hear are.
Proverbs 16:24 says, “Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.” If we want to see a healing movement sweep our nation and the nations, we must begin with what we speak. Our words have the power to heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons, and restore the soul, but we must speak life. Why the connection to words and honey? Solomon knew things we do not know.
Did you know one of the first coins in the world had a bee symbol on it? Did you know there are live enzymes in honey? Did you know this is why the best way to eat honey is with a wooden spoon? Did you know that honey contains a substance to make your brain work better? Did you know that honey is one of the rare foods on earth that alone can sustain human life? Did you know that honey has no expiration date? Did you know that propolis that bees produce is on the of most powerful natural antibiotics?
Now take honey and switch it with the words of life we speak. Our words are to be healing, to be honey to the hearer. Our words heal, they do not expire. God knew what He was doing when He tied our words to honey and now we are speak sweetly to one another, it will make us stronger, healthlier and smarter, not the opposite. It’s time to speak pleaseant words no matter what you see or someone else says.
