Power of Words

I mentioned the other day about focusing on words that can help me become the best I can be. The scriptures often talk of the power of the word of God, and with this in mind I realize that the words in the scriptures used as my daily focus can have great power to change my very being by changing my heart. I find it valuable to look up the definition of even simple words in the scriptures because there is often other meanings that I haven't usually thought of that give me greater insight and direction.

I am committed to picking a word or two from my morning scripture reading to plant in my mind and heart for the day. Today the two words that jumped out at me were true and steady because of the dramatic affect they have on the heart. There were definitions of both of those words that I haven't thought of before. What power is in each word. No wonder we are encouraged not to use swear words because of the negative impact they can have on our hearts and souls.
