Proverbs 12:14 (NIV) - 14 From the fruit of their lips people are filled with good things, and the work of their hands brings them reward.

Psalm 141:3 (NLT) - 3 Take control of what I say, O LORD, and guard my lips.

Psalm 34:1213 (NLT) - 12 Does anyone want to live a life that is long and prosperous? 13 Then keep your tongue from speaking evil and your lips from telling lies!

John 6:68 (NLT) - 68 Simon Peter replied, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words that give eternal life.”

Three ways to positively shape your world with words:

1. FILTER Feedback.

Three sources to heed

  • Voice of Authority
    • Proverbs 1:89 (NLT) - 8 My child, listen when your father corrects you. Don’t neglect your mother’s instruction. 9 What you learn from them will crown you with grace and be a chain of honor around your neck.
  • Voice of Godly Friendships
    • Make sure they love righteousness
    • Psalm 141:5 (NLT) - 5 Let the godly strike me! It will be a kindness! If they correct me, it is soothing medicine. Don’t let me refuse it. But I pray constantly against the wicked and their deeds.
  • Voice of God’s Word
    • Surround yourself with the reading and teaching of God’s Word.

2. FOCUS Self Talk

Areas to strategically focus your self talk

  • Identity
  • Purpose
  • Ability
  • Destiny

3. FREELY give Encouragement

Three rules of encouragement

  • Encourage someone EVERYDAY
  • Encourage someone SPIRITUALLY
  • Encourage YOURSELF

The power of words to shape your eternity:

Romans 10:9 (NLT) - If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
