But why do the things people say about you, or what you think about yourself really matters? Have you heard about CURSES? A curse has several meanings but this is the one I want us to focus on in this presentation-"the expression of a wish that misfortune, evil, doom, etc., befall a person group, etc." So, what's the big deal? Thoughts can't do harm because they're not active, and words are just words. No, they're not!
The smallest words like 'stupid', or dunce should never be used to describe a child. I say a child because we learn and we become what we believe based on what we've been taught. As we grow we make decisions base on what we've been taught or what we believe and eventually we become what we believe and our thoughts can be turned into realities. So, it starts with child-hood or infancy.
If you always infer that your child is "stupid", then don't be surprise that he or she turns out to be just that. Words have an astonishing, unimaginable power (to either build or destroy). Simply because we are in a world filled with both good and evil.The Word of God also emphasizes the power of life and death in the tongue.This is why we are encouraged to think positively (of ourselves and of others), and why we ought to be careful of what we say about ourselves. The words we speak can either create blessings or curse.
When Satan makes you feel like you're all alone, powerless and defeated. When He tries to infect your mind with thoughts that causes you to belittle yourself and make you feel unimportant, insecure and incapable of becoming successful, productive, and positively influential. When he puts in your head that "you are not beautiful" or good enough to be loved. Remind Him that He has already lost the battle because God is on your side. Tell him get loss! Yes, if you have submitted your life; all your dreams, passions, or desires to God then you can resist him, rebuke him and HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU!! (James 4:7) Keep praying, keep trusting God, remain humble and ask God's Holy Spirit to guide you continually as you seek His help.
It only takes belief in the negative words, and a lack of the knowledge of God's truth to allow a curse to take residency over your life. But the good news is that no matter how strong they are; no matter how deep they have been rooted in your life. there's a greater power that can break every chain-God's Power. When we see ourselves the way God sees us; when His presence and power controls our life; when we take refuge in Him no evil shall be fall us (Psalm 91). We are thereby protected, secured, satisfied and unbeatable because the God of angels armies is on our side.
