TRUTH SERIES 5:CREATING NEW NIGERIA WITH OUR WORDS
" In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was formless wasteland, and darkness covered the abyss, while a mighty wind swept over the waters, then God said," Let there be light," and there was light."- (Genesis1: 1-3)
The above Bible quotation is a reminder that the first creation happened through the spoken Word, Furthermore, the unchanging nature of the creating forces indicating that man's true nature is also unchangeable.
God has also given man the creative power through the word. Everyone including you has the power to speak positive words, but sometimes we choose to speak negatively because we have develop a negative mental attitude towards a situation. Words have the power to build us up or tear us down or even the change the situations around us.
Because of many challenges facing our Country(Nigeria),Most times ,the people speak negatively against our leaders,the government and the future of the country.words like Nigeria is jagajaga,I cant make in Nigeria,it cant never change,it is not possible and so on does not take us any where further rather it draws backward.it is true that some of our leaders might be guilty,but speaking negatively does not move us ahead an inch.
If we pray for our country,we also need to speak positively,our words are powerful,because it also pushes also to go ahead to do positive actions.Inspite of our challenges
let us all keep hope alive.let us create the new Nigeria we want to see and live in by our words.Let us all have a different attitude like Caleb, in spite of the giants in the land ,He said they are well able to go and take over the land,and they did.
You can change your world by changing your words... Remember, death and life are in the power of the tongue.
God bless Nigeria.
