Mark 4:24 (AMP) And he said to them, Be careful what you are hearing. The measure [of thought and study] you give [to the truth you hear] will be the measure [of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you – and more [besides] will be given to you who hear.
Words are powerful and potent. Words have the ability to communicate power, courage, and strength, however, words can also communicate discouragement, unbelief, doubt, and fear.
When Cornelius, a very devout man, was praying and an angel appeared to him and directed him to Peter, this is how Peter recounted what the angel told him, “And he shewed us how he had seen an angel in his house, which stood and said unto him, Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon, whose surname is Peter; Who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved.” Words, power-filled words.
Again, hear Peter cry out in John 6:68 after that many of Jesus’ followers had deserted him and Jesus had asked the 12 if they too wouldn’t leave. Peter said, “…To whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life”.
You see, words can communicate the power of God unto salvation, however, they can also subvert hearers and cause them to stray. Here is Apostle Paul’s warning to Timothy, “Remind people of these things and solemnly charge them before the Lord not to wrangle over words. This is of no benefit; it just brings ruin on those who listen”, and again he said, “But avoid profane chatter, because those occupied with it will stray further and further into ungodliness” (2 Tim 2: 14&16).
The words you hear and expose yourself to continually will have an impact on your life. If those words are communicating ungodliness, fear, doubt, and unbelief, you will begin to see them manifest in your life. However, the more you consciously expose yourself to God’s words which communicate his love, power, faith, and godliness, you will likewise see them manifest in your life.
Be careful what you are hearing, what you are giving thought to and meditating upon, your life [and spiritual health] depends on it.
Go into today resolved to give more thought and study to the truth of God’s word.
Say these words, ‘O how I love your law! All-day long I meditate on it. Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies, for I am always aware of them’ (Psalm 119:97-98 NET).
