There’s this amazing thing that happens when you explode air bubbles with sound waves underwater–light is created. Yes. Hit air bubbles under water with enough sound waves and the bubbles explode into light. There are scientific reasons for this to happen, but it proves another point. Sound effects things you don’t expect.
Jesus told us, For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, Be removed and be cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. (Mk 11:23)
God spoke and there was light, there were worlds, there was creation. Then God put His Holy Spirit in us. Where did that power go? In us. Death and life are in the power of the tongue. (Pv 18:21) The words that we say carry far more weight than we imagine. Speak life not death. Don’t joke around with your words. You are releasing power, and it’s never benign.
Practice speaking blessing over yourself and your family. Whenever you catch yourself saying anything negative out loud, even if it’s a joke, repent and speak the opposite. Life and death are in the power of your tongue. Choose to bless and you will change the atmosphere around you.
