"Death and life are in the power of the tongue!" (Proverbs 18:21)
Are we speaking death or life into our circumstances? What are we creating with the words that we speak? Our words have creative power!
"As a man thinks in his heart, so is he." (Proverbs 23:7)
What future are we building with the thoughts that we harbor on? The thoughts we meditate on are the direction in which we will go... these thoughts will show in our attitude, which will then become the words that we speak... And our words will eventually create an outcome...
We have to make a conscious decision to change our attitude so that only life is spilling from our lips. Aligning our thoughts with God's thoughts and plans will assure that the words that we speak will create the good future He intended for us... (Jeremiah 29:11)
What atmosphere are we creating for ourselves and for those around us? Let's not be thermometers and merely adjust to the fluctuating temperatures of life... may we be thermostats ~ that everywhere we go, WE set the attitude that reigns in the room.
