Why Words Are Like Legos

Devotion on the Power of your wordsDid you ever play with Legos as a kid? I remember when I was growing up that playing with Legos was one of my favorite things to do. There wasn’t enough time in a day to build all the towers, houses and cars I wanted to build. I just loved building stuff with Legos.

In a way, the words that we speak each day are a lot like Legos. Our words can build or create new things. Each word we speak creates what we see each and every day.

The Bible says in Mark 11:23 that we can have whatever we say.

For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. – Mark 11:23 (NKJV)

Our words build or create where we go in life, good or bad. The Bible says in Proverbs 18:21 that death and life are in the power of the tongue.

The words we speak build what we have today. If you don’t like what you’re seeing in your life, check up on what you are speaking each day. If you speak words of defeat, words that say you’re worthless, that you’re a mess, and that you’ll never amount to anything, that is exactly what you will build in your life. I encourage you to realize the power of your words and to make the decision to speak words that build good things in your life.

What you speak out sets the tone for your life – Joel Osteen

      Good question Abigail! We’ve only started adding discussion questions to a few of our newer devotions. Glad to hear you’d like them. We will keep adding them to more devotions as we have time!
