Quote: "The 'better than good' life is lived by those who have passion for changing the world they live in!" - Zig Ziglar
Wow! Have you ever thought about changing the world you live in? Unfortunately, if you don't ever think about it, there isn't much chance you ever will. Now I know you're probably asking, "Who is this guy anyway? What does he know about changing the world?" I'm glad you asked. And if you give me a moment, I'll help you understand world-changing power. It's really a simple dynamic truth much like the dynamic truth of gravity. The law of gravity ensures that what goes up, must come down, without fail. Planes go up, planes come down. Footballs go up, footballs come down. Gravity works, always. If the law of gravity weren't true always, we would be in a heck of a fix, right? Just imagine driving a car, if gravity worked some days and some days it didn't. There is a world changing power that operates just like gravity - true always and without fail. This powerful truth is found in the power of words.
The simple truth of word power is that words create and change the everyday world we live in. "Say what?" Exactly! What you say will create the world you experience. Proverbs 18:21 states, "death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit." This means that the words you speak have the supernatural force of creation to release the blessing of life or the curse of death in your present and future world. Now that's a Big Bang theory! In Genesis 1:3, "God said, 'let there be light'; and there was light." If God created the world by the Word He spoke, then the same is true for us who He created in His image - we create the condition of our world by the words we speak.
To more fully understand this dynamic, you must gain an appreciation for the life cycle of words. Words create thoughts, thoughts produce feelings, feelings inspire choices, choices generate actions, actions determine habits, habits develop character, character builds destiny, and destiny breeds legacy. Therefore, your personal legacy, your family legacy, and your team legacy - all legacies come alive with words first spoken into existence. Show me the words you speak and I will show you the legacy you birth for yourself and future generations. I know this sounds too incredible to be true, however, it is true.
I also know the power of negative words that can bombard your mind and cast doubtful thoughts on this simple truth. "My words don't really matter. I'm just one person among billions. How can I change the world? I can't really make a difference in life." When this happens, simply change those words of doubt and negativity by believing that one person (you) plus God equals a majority. Romans 8:31 states that "if God be for you, who can be against you." The word of can't seeks to paralyze you with a spirit of fear, stealing your destiny in God, and preventing you from building His Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. Don't just let it happen. With a spirit of faith and humility, change the world you live in by fighting the good fight of faith and believing the Word of the Lord in Philippians 4:13 that says, "I can do all things [make it happen] through Christ who strengthens me."
