Self Talk

Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman

Without a doubt GOD loves us. His Word is His endless love letter to you and me and all through it He repeatedly proclaims His love for us. But, knowing GOD loves us in our head is not the same as knowing He loves us in our heart!

There are a number of things that keep us from having a heartfelt revelation of GOD’S love, but I believe one of the greatest things is the way we talk about ourselves, which is “self-talk!” Let’s admit it, we all talk to ourselves; we can do it externally or out loud and also internally within our thoughts.

Are you speaking negative words (self-criticism, judgement and condemnation) over yourself or positive words of GOD’S love and acceptance? Don’t let the truth of GOD’S love be drowned out by thoughts of negatively, fear and doubt!

Luke 6:45c

Out of the abundance (overflow) of the heart his mouth speaks…

Realize that nobody’s words carry more weight or power in your life than yours! Why? Because next to GOD, you have the greatest amount of authority in and over your life. Words spoken out of your mouth will either produce death or life (Proverbs 18:21).
