Everyday Study Joyce Meyer: The Power of Words
The Power of Words
Our words are containers for power. Everything that comes out of our mouths—whether positive or negative—has the ability to affect ourselves and others for the good or bad. Words are wonderful when used in the right way; they can encourage, edify and give confidence to the hearer. A right word spoken at the right time can actually be life-changing (see Proverbs 15:23).Everyday Study Joyce Meyer: Trust God and Do Good
We can literally increase our own joy by speaking right words. We can also upset ourselves by talking unnecessarily about our problems or things that have hurt us. When we truly understand the power of our words and realize we can choose what we speak, our lives can be transformed.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it and indulge it will eat its fruit and bear the consequences of their words. Proverbs 18:21 AMP
