Words and Their Impact – March 20 – Journey of Leadership Daily Devotion

One of the most important ways to make impact on others is through our words.

The words we produced by our mouths or through our pens can transform lives or destroy them.

But it’s quite unfortunate that many people, including leaders abuse the power of words rather than making positive impact with this powerful force.

Words are so sacred.

The Scripture says, “The worlds was framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which do appear” (Hebrews 11:3).

If we regard words the way God regards words, we will be seeing our world becoming like heaven. The atmosphere of our homes, organizations, communities, churches and nations will be absolutely peaceful, beautiful and glorious.

I will like to call your attention to the right use that God desires in our engagement of words. We must be careful to measure our words against these demands whenever we have to speak or write. The satisfaction that we are pleasing God with our words will also fill our hearts by taking heed to this right use of words.

Your Words must Always Frame Your World 

Framed according to Hebrews 11:3 means to complete thoroughly, to repair or make perfect. It was unto this purpose God engaged the use of His words and it should not be anything contrary or lesser in our own engagement of words.

As a leader, husband, wife, parent or whoever you are, you must be able to find out if your words complete people or compete with them? Does your words repair or damage. Do you use words to make things perfect or worse?

Your Words must be Made of God’s Spirit 

If your words will have the God kind of impact of framing the World, it must be made of His Spirit. What your words are made of determines the kind of effects they will be having. 

To make your words of such nature, substance, vitality and power, your words must have the same source like Jesus in John 6:63. He said, “The words I speak, they are spirit and they are life.”

What’s your word made of?
