It doesn’t matter how much we may try to plan our lives and destinies to run along a perfectly straight path … life happens! Trials and struggles simply will come our way. When we choose to endure rather than throw in the towel when times get tough, we will certainly be on our way to fulfilling our God-given destinies. So where does endurance begin?
It begins with our words.
Our words have a significant impact on our lives.
Proverbs 18:21 says, Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit (NKJV).
Our words contain great power, and when an unexpected storm rises up to confront us, how well we endure it is often determined by the words we speak. Instead of giving power to our fears, let’s speak life over our situations, our finances, our families, our marriages and our relationships. Our words are a creative force, and through words of faith, we CAN speak life into every circumstance!
