In this blog post, I will present scripture verses, a book, an experiment, and a video that shows the power of words.
Power of Words Shown Through Bible Scriptures
When God created the world, the Bible tells you it was done using the power of words.
And God said, let there be light and there was light. Genesis 1:3
And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. Genesis 1:6
And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. Genesis 1:9
And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. Genesis 1:11
Words are powerful. Job lost everything after he said these words…
For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.Job 3:25
If you don’t want something, don’t say it. If you want something, choose your words carefully. Another scripture from the Bible clearly states the good, and the bad we speak affects us. The power of words blesses or curses.
A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence.
He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.Proverbs 13:2-3
The Hidden Messages in Water- Words are Vibrations
Words are vibrations that have different frequencies. Words very much affect molecular structures, including ourselves. Nice, positive words have a frequency that enhances and improves molecular structure. Mean, negative words have a frequency that produces negative undesirable results. The following images clearly show that words are powerful. You won’t want to miss reading “The Hidden Messages in Water” by Masaru Emoto from Amazon, a quick read with lots of amazing water crystal photos that show the amazing power of words.
Jennifer performed an experiment for her 7-year-old son to show him that there is power connected to the words we speak. She cut an apple in half and marked one half “Good Apple” and the other half “Bad Apple”. For twenty days, they said mean things to one-half of the apple. To the other half of the apple, they said nice things. At the end of the experiment, the following link shows the difference between the two halves.
Altering Word Phrases to Increase Positivity
- Saying “Please remember” increases positivity over “Don’t forget”
- “An opportunity to solve” increases positivity over “A problem”
- “A situation” increases positivity over “A problem”
- “Often and seldom” increases positivity over “Always and never”
- “Could have” increases positivity over “Should have”
- “Unwise” increases positivity over “Bad”
- “I like it when” increases positivity over “Don’t”
- “I am experiencing sad feelings” increases positivity over “Sad”
- “Valuable lessons” increase positivity over “Mistakes “
As we go about our day, if everyone paid attention to opportunities to change negative words into positive words that bless you and those around you, the world would quickly move to a higher vibration making the environment more enjoyable for all.
Words are More Powerful Than a Sword
The following verse is a reminder that words are more powerful than violence and war.
And now, as the preaching of the word had a great tendency to lead the people to do that which was just—yea, it had had more powerful effect upon the minds of the people than the sword… Alma 31:5
How I wish these words were applied more readily in the world.
