People will talk; don’t let the talk destroy you!

Verse of the day

But some people have missed this whole point. They have turned away from these things and spend their time in meaningless discussions. [NLT] [1 Timothy 1:6]

…….

There will always be people who can overturn houses and homes with their mouths, i.e., people that are capable of #destroying families, business and even marriages by merely #speaking. Negative Words are powerful. We have examples of parents speaking negative words over the lives of their children, such words like “Child, you are stupid”, “You are an Idiot”, “You will never learn”, and the only thing the child grows learning is never to trust themselves; and since they’ve been branded as worthless, they end up believing it and think very little of themselves. #Negative #words are #hurtful. There will also be a group of people who will speak negative words around us, with the intension to discourage, derail and destroy us. The word of #God reminds us that this will happen and have been happening from time, it’s not a new phenomenon, and the onus now is how we choose to deal with such words. Instead of encouraging one another in Christ, and in His love, many have turned to wicked and destructive talks. Don’t let such people destroy your peace! It’s time you identified the purpose behind the vain and treacherous talk and remind your hearts whom you are in Christ, and that you’re not what they are saying. Don’t get me wrong, being on the receiving end of such talks will be hurtful, but never forget who you are in Christ. You are loved, precious, cherished and highly sought after – Jesus even gave His life for you, that’s just how important you are! And parents, who carelessly toss cruel words to their children, don’t you think it’s about time you stopped? I declare that every mouth speaking evil/negative words against you, with the intension of destroying/derailing your destiny will be stopped in Jesus name. Amen.
