Can we agree that our words have power? They are potent.
Potent means compelling, convincing, dominant, dramatic, dynamic or effective.
Proverbs 15:1 “A gentle answer quiets anger, but a harsh one stirs it up.”
Proverbs 15:4 “Kind words heal and help; cutting words wound and maim.”
Proverbs 25:18 “Telling lies about friends is like attacking them with clubs and swords and sharp arrows.”
Proverbs 26:20 “Fire goes out without wood, and quarrels disappear when gossip stops.”
Matthew 12:36 “I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak.”
Consider your words as powerful as you like, but yours are never potent enough to surpass the omnipotence of God.
Omnipotent means all powerful; all mighty, attributed only to God.
Hebrews 1:3a “He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power.”
Psalm 33:9 “For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm.”
Genesis 1:3. “God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light”
Lamentations 3:37 “Who can speak, and have it happen, if the Lord has not decreed it”
So, friends, your true power is in using the very words of God.
