Speaking Life or Death


Do you speak life or death? I’ve learned today, even as a growing Christian, I speak death a LOT. It’s scary to come into the realization of your own being and really see how your words affect your life, as well as the people in your life.


Are you in a relationship, married or simply friends with someone and you can’t figure out why you can’t help them? Did you ever think you are speaking death into their hearts? When you say things like…


“I told you so!”

“Why won’t you listen to me?”

“You’re doing it wrong!”

“You don’t understand!”


You’re not helping them at all, in fact your doing the opposite! I’ve learned that with my last relationship that I spoke death all the time into it. From judging him, to judging myself for reasons I shouldn’t have. Deep down, I didn’t want to be with him but at the time I didn’t want to think that. Now, looking at my new relationship, I am happier, by far, but I am still speaking death. It’s hard in this day and age to mind our mouths. I encourage you to take a look at how you speak throughout the day. Do you speak more death or life? More negatives’ or positives? Ask God to show you and help you not to speak in such a way. Your words can not only affect your life, they can affect your health, and the lives of the people around you.


It was not only written in the bible, It’s a fact about life. You always speak negatives only negative outcomes will come from it. Starts by being more positive, you will begin to speak more life naturally, then reflect the way you speak. Write down all the fraises you use most throughout the day and ask yourself… Are you speaking life (positive) or death (negative) ?

Whatever you speak someone will take it in a negative way.

I just speak it, and let God do the sorting out.

To speak death is a natural means of showing how good

life is.We all have a choice.Through the intellect we

decern the good and the bad consequences of good and evil.

You make your bed hard.....you have to lay in it.

Thanks thevoice for reading! and I agree with you Jack. The way I look at it is, the truth hurts but a lies worse. When you want to help someone you come as a possitive light, if they only take it as darkness, there is nothing you can do. But at least you came with life and not death. When it comes to relationships(dating, marriage) you have to watch how you speak. A simple fraise like "You never listen!" could impact them and make them feel unloved, unwanted, ect. Words are very very powerful. God spoke and created the world with words alone. People underestimate how dire it is we speak good and not evil, light and not dark, life and not death. A person can speak themselves into sickness and even speak horible feelings and behaviors into others. Thanks for reading and for both your comments!
