Our words can impact our future

Isaiah 6:1-7 (AMP)  1 IN THE year that King Uzziah died, [in a vision] I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and the skirts of His train filled the [most holy part of the] temple.  2 Above Him stood the seraphim; each had six wings: with two [each] covered his [own] face, and with two [each] covered his feet, and with two [each] flew.  3 And one cried to another and said, Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!  4 And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who cried, and the house was filled with smoke.  5 Then said I, Woe is me! For I am undone and ruined, because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!  6 Then flew one of the seraphim [heavenly beings] to me, having a live coal in his hand which he had taken with tongs from off the altar;  7 And with it he touched my mouth and said, Behold, this has touched your lips; your iniquity and guilt are taken away, and your sin is completely atoned for and forgiven.

Your words can impact your future.  When Isaiah was in the presence of God, the one thing he was aware of was his unclean lips.  Even when we recognize sin in our lives, God can cleanse us and give us a brand new start.   Do you want your words to have power?   Your words can tear people apart and hurt them deeply or your words can lift people up and impact the lives of others in a positive way.

When we are saved, we are holy, but we have to learn how to live a new life and part of that is how we use our words.  People cannot see your spirit but they can hear your words and see the way you act.  It’s useless to say you are a Christian if your words and behavior do not line up with the Word of God.

God has a great future planned for us.  But just because it is planned with, that does not mean it will automatically happen.  We have to do our part to have that great future.

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.
