I have seen many people take to social media to express their feelings about the recent tragedies that have occurred in our community.
But what I can’t understand is the number of christian mothers and fathers expressing their heightened fear for their children’s lives.
People are saying: They are afraid for their childs future, They’re kids are going to live in a evil world, and so many other disturbing statements. I’m thinking to myself, really? You’re just going to speak that negativity and declare those word curses over your children like that? I cannot allow my friends and family to continue doing this without addressing it.
If you are reading this, then I consider you a friend or family. With my deepest compassion and godly intention I would like to urge you to not speak death over your children! The Bible tells us that life and death lie in the power of the tongue. What that means is that your words hold power. So much power that whatever you speak out of your mouth will begin to manifest itself in the natural.
Just like daily declarations, when you wake up and repeat them, you are believing God and believing in your heart that they will come to fruition, right? And they will. Well the same thing happens with negative words that you speak. Those words take root and and will begin to grow.
Additionally, what you don’t realize is that you are instilling your fears into your children.
Then instead of being children and living their lives freely as they are intended to, they begin to live in fear because that’s what mommy is teaching them is normal.
[Tweet “Stop being afraid. That’s no way to live.”]
Because what you are doing is making room for the enemy to come in. The Bible tells us not to give room to the enemy. So instead of speaking word curses over your children and instead of saying how afraid you are for their life, change your words around and began to speak LIFE over them!
Speak positive. Be optimistic. Speak words of faith. Talk about the blessings of God. Appreciate the joy of the Lord. Point out the things that are going right. Talk about how good God is. Speak love over them and live!
Here are 3 scriptures to focus on during times of dismay, tragedy and turmoil:
God has not given us the spirit of fear but of power love and a sound mind. ~ 2 Timothy 1:7
Behold I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you. ~ Luke 10:19
Psalm 91 (entire chapter)
As a woman of faith you have to continue to speak life into your children.
You have to continue to tell them that God has the power to do anything exceedingly well. You have to tell them how beautiful they are, how smart they are and how capable they are to be great. Tell them how blessed they are going to be and how greatly God is going to use them to change their generation. Let’s give our children the courage and confidence they need to grow up, live full lives and BE the change their generation needs.
