To go straight to the point, I remember hurting my mother badly when I was like 12 years old, I don’t vividly remember what I did but one thing I remember was what she said to me when she was angry and I quote”YOU WILL SELL PAPER AND NOBODY WILL BUY” till now I don’t quite put my finger around it, why my own mother will say a word like that to me. I was a respectful, obedient, and hardworking child. I don’t hold any grudges with my mother now or before because in as much as God works in mysterious ways,so those the devil because her own words have cost her a lot of prayers and fasting for me to change that.
As Children of God, our tongues have a lot of power. Proverbs 18:21 confirms this by saying, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.” … These verses prove how much good or bad our tongues, words can do, this was the secret to my struggles in life.
Honestly, I never worry about what my mum said to me but rather I focus on what the word of God says, I saw and heard a lot of grown-ups speak good of me that am intelligent, different, and unique in everything I do and as young as I was, I realized that even among the people older than me, I still stand out in everything, I was carrying this supernatural favor that baffles myself when I sit and count my blessing.
To share a little testimony with you on how the words of affirmation have blessed my life, I was a school prefect and a chaplain all my junior high which was surprising, a post I deserved was given out to someone and in a year that person went mad and drop out of school but survived the challenges and completed Senior high, I was laid out of my job but got a new one few days with better salary and awesome accommodation benefit, I was sacked by my auntie I was staying with and was left homeless but two men approached and said someone said you have a problem so tell us your problem, A man I worked with lied against me that he was sleeping with me, just to sack me out of the house, but his wife didn’t believe it, rather gave me her ATM card to redraw money to pay for my rent, I bought 6,500 GH MacBook which was paid by a stranger.
If I am to continue my testimony on the essence of words of affirmation, I am not sure we will end this article today. In the King James Version, 1 Peter 2:9 reads thus: “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”
This is one of my favorite verses in the bible, that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” what my mum said years ago might have been my reality but I consistently affirmed myself that, whatever darkness or curse in my life has been taken off and now in the light so, therefore, I am not bound to any disadvantages.
I wake up every day proclaiming that I am favored amidst all, am a peculiar person, I am not given the spirit of fear but the power to call forth what is needed to fulfill my purpose. R I have been given a great measure of faith to call forth wherever or whoever is assigned to play any role on my purpose and things begin to happen.
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.how can you eat the fruit of your tone if you don’t speak good things for yourself?
The universe has been made ope for us to benefit everything, why are others enjoying it therein whilst some suffer? because some are not calling on the universe to give what they need and still suffering.
You have been created in the likeness of Jesus, so if Jesus can speak to the fig tree to stop bearing it fruit and die then you call awaken everything that is dead back to life because you have power in your mouth to speak and bear fruit.
This is why I don’t play with my daily words of affirmation, I hope it inspires you to start speaking positive words of affirmation to yourself and I pray the Lord to guard your lips in order to benefit the power in your tongue for his glory.
