The Power of a Blessing

Just as we can curse another with a casual word, we can also bless. Think about a time when someone spoke into your life a blessing. It probably warmed your heart and made you smile. It planted good seed in your heart.

The words we use have power! They have power to lift up or tear down.

James 3:6 says,

And the tongue is a fire, the very world of iniquity; the tongue is set among our members as that which defiles the entire body, and sets on fire the course of our life, and is set on fire by hell.

That is some powerful imagery. What I want to point out in this passage is that the tongue, the words spoken, will set the course of our lives! That should give every parent a pause to consider the words spoken to our children. We have the power to set the course of our children’s lives!

A blessing that is continually spoken over a child will become a reality in their life. So what is a blessing? Take a moment and think about what you want for your child’s life? Develop a blessing specifically for them. Then speak it regularly. Tell that child what you see in their future.

“I believe in you and I always will.”

“You are special and smart!”

“You will do great things for God!”

This principle applies to not only our children but every person we come in contact with. Everyone longs to hear a blessing. Who doesn’t want to be told that another human being believes in them?

No matter the age, it is not too late to speak into a life a blessing or positive word of encouragement. Your words have power so wield that power carefully. Let the words that come out of your mouth speak life and not death.
