It says in the Bible that God created the heavens and the earth with his word. Jesus healed people and performed other miracles with his word. A man's word is what makes him a man. Keeping your word builds trust. Words are used to motivate, comfort, encourage, protect, and bring peace.
Wars begin and end with words. The most incredible tool in life that we have been given is our words. How we use our words determines what happens in our life. We can change anything in life if we speak it and believe it. It’s said when liars lie enough; they start believing their lies. Then why can't we do that with our dreams? If we speak about a dream long enough, we can make it come true. Right?
In Mark 11:23 of the Bible it says, "If anyone says to the mountain go throw yourself into the sea, and does not doubt in the heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him"
That's proof that anything you say, you can do. We just need to start using the right words to get the job done. In sports, the difference between the winning and losing team is the pre-game speech. Coaches win not by strategy alone but by the words they use to motivate their team.
Great champions know how to motivate themselves by talking to themselves. Great warriors are the ones that go into battle, saying that no matter what, they are coming out alive. I believe you can do anything you say you can do.
I remember a basketball game where we were down by 27 pts with one half left to play; this was the biggest deficit a team had been down before. In this situation, usually, the team who is losing loses the game. The difference with our team was in the words we spoke. We didn’t develop an elaborate strategy during halftime, and we weren’t given a motivational speech to fire us up. We all believed in five words that day.
We will win this game.
We overcame the deficit and won the championship by 10 points.
You must believe in the words you say for them to have an impact; just simply saying them enough can make you believe them.
Words spark belief. The crazy thing about all religious texts is that they essentially have the same message in different words. Mostly all of history's memorable icons were great speakers. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X's dreams would have never come true or made a difference if they weren't spoken to the world. They say close mouths don't get fed, so start saying your prayers out loud so God can feed your spirit.
