Picture this. You’ve got all four kids in the minivan, bags are packed, the sun is shining and you’re heading out on what should be a terrific family vacation. You start out by driving 5 miles north, but then you turn around and head 5 miles south.  Then you travel 5 miles north again, followed by 5 miles south. Yikes. You’re really not getting anywhere, are you?

The truth is our words are just like that. Our words map out the route we’re traveling. If our words are positive and aligned with God’s Word -- His Truth -- then we head one direction. But if we’re then speaking negative words that are aligned with our feelings, opinions or even sometimes the facts of a situation, it sends us right back the other direction. A lifetime of that pattern will leave you feeling like you’re getting nowhere and certainly won’t help you live a life you love -- that’s just not how this works!

In Proverbs 18:21 we see that: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue…” God wants us to choose life! He wants us to speak words of life. To speak words that cause our life to route along the most blessed, prosperous, abundant and joy-filled path. So what’s the secret here? What kind of words do that for us? Words that align with God’s Word!

For instance, the Bible says He surrounds and protects us (Psalm 91:11, Psalm 32:7) -- so speaking that truth enables your life to head in the right direction. On the other hand, speaking about being afraid, fearful and scared all the time causes you to head the other direction. As another example, God’s Word says that by His stripes you are healed (1 Peter 2:24). So, choose to speak words about His healing power being active in your life, not about how you’re incurable or going to die young. You can’t speak both words of life and words of death and expect to get anywhere in life! You’ll just go in circles and be frustrated and discouraged. 

Does this mean we’re ignoring the “facts” as situations or storms arise in life? Nope! What it does mean is acknowledging that there is a higher truth that trumps all facts -- it’s God’s Truth from His Word! You can admit “hey, I got a bad doctor’s report today” or “wow, I’m still living paycheck to paycheck.” But don’t make that your daily confession -- instead, seek out what God’s Truth says about that area of your life by reading your Bible -- and then speak the Word! And keep reading His Word and keep speaking His Truth...over and over, as a way of life...and your life will keep heading along the very best path for you!

So today, I encourage you to choose God’s Word as your ultimate road map and speak words of life over every area of your life. Keep doing that, and you’ll keep heading the right direction...and you’ll be well on your way to living a life you love!

Say This: “Father, thank You that Your Truth trumps any facts or circumstances. Help me to know what Your Word says about every area of my life, and help me to speak life -- Your Truth -- over and over again. Thank You that the path You have for me is bright and full of blessings, and today I make the choice to align my words with Your Word so that I can walk along the incredible path that You want me to experience. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
