Just as the physical body requires food to function properly, the person of a man needs words. It’s from what you hear that you know what you can do, what you should do, what you shouldn’t do and what can’t happen. You are subject to what you hear. You cannot rise above the quality of what you hear as a person. If you are reading this today it means that you are a product of some words. So the question now is, what kind of words is shaping your life?
You learnt to talk by hearing people talk. Have you ever noticed that people who are born deaf are automatically dumb? If you never heard a word in your life, how under heaven can you know how to speak? Have you seen a deaf man who can speak? Think about it. The person of any man needs information to grow. And the information that you are surrounding yourself with at this time is what is drawing up what your life will look like in a few years. A man is not poor because of what he doesn’t have, rather he is poor because of what he’s never heard. There is a gospel that not only truly sounds good but also sincere to the letter in how good it is.
Words are food for your soul. Don’t joke with what you give your hearing. Don’t let anybody dump any mental garbage on you. Don’t play with words on failure and misfortune. Don’t accept any information about yourself that contradicts the future picture you have of yourself. If you don’t like the way your life is at the moment then you need a change. What you’ve heard over the years has brought you where you are today. My question now for you is, do you want your life to continue the way it is or you want to make a change? If you want to make a change, then you have to change what you hear and how you hear.
