Scripture:
‘From the fruit of their mouth a person’s stomach is filled; with the harvest of their lips they are satisfied.’
Proverbs 18:20 (NIV)

 

Affirm:
I speak words of blessing. My words are words of praise. The words I speak always bless me. And everything I praise, I raise.

 

Dear Prosperity Partners and Friends,

I pray your holiday time was restful and reflective. God’s goodness abounds and it never fails. God bless you and your family, too.

On Sunday, July 31st, Universal Foundation for Better Living’s Licensed Teacher, Naudia Sinclair, shared a powerful lesson relating to the power of the spoken word. Our teaching emphasizes that the thoughts we think influence the words we speak. The words we speak bring forth demonstrations after their own kind.

For the past 48 years, UFBL has shared principles to help us live a happy, healthy, and prosperous life Now. One such principle is the power of our spoken word to heal, to bless, to uplift, and to prosper. When we remember and stay in alignment with our spiritual lineage as children of God, our words become the key to our happy, healthy, and prosperous life. There is nothing more powerful than a thought spoken with, faith, power, and conviction – positive or negative. What you speak for yourself or others, you get to keep the original and ‘you give away the carbon copy.’ Johnnie Colemon.

Watch the Sermon

Sunday’s Sermon, ‘Watch Your Mouth’, delivered by Naudia Sinclair provided us with these Major Points:

    1. The spoken word is the product of your thoughts. Thoughts backed by emotions become manifest as your words.
      We’ve heard that thinking + feeling = demonstration. Right Words rightly aligned with Right Thinking, Right Feeling, Right Action, and Right Reaction produce blessings. Your decree brings things to life. So, say only those things that you want to manifest in your life. Naudia says, ‘Speak it as if you already have it. Then, make yourself listen to what you say.’
    2. Your speech reflects your state of consciousness.
      Focus your energy on speaking the word. As Florence Scovill Shinn says, ‘Your word is your wand.’ You must know how to use your word. When you change your words, you change your life.
    3. Every word from your mouth is an affirmation and a decree when you speak. Shift your focus from what you do not want, to what you do want.
      Shift your focus from what you don’t want to what you do want. There is power in using right words. A series of affirmations were shared in the service to demonstrate how shifts in our words can result in shifts in our life experience. Naudia admonished, ‘Don’t allow your mouth to mash up your life.’ She reminds us to align our words with the destiny that we seek.

 

Quotes to Ponder:

“Say what you want to say, not what you impetuously are led to say by the habit of thought. Don’t keep telling yourself how awful you feel, or how hot the day is, or how miserable your job is. Say to yourself, “Stop that!” …. Say what you want to be true, and say it as if it were already true. This is the whole secret of affirmation.”

– Eric Butterworth Speaks: Essays on Abundant Living #23: The Power Of The Spoken Word

 

“There is power in the spoken word; certain words turn on the cells…the organs…the tissues inside of you. I will say it again. This is a do-it-yourself thing. You’ve got to do it for you. The words I speak are for me, not for you. Until you can put down all of the churchiness and cuteness and get involved, you will not get any results. …This stuff, if you work it, will work. It will heal your body. It will make your pocketbooks get fat with a whole lot of hundred-dollar bills…That is, if you will just open your mouth and begin to speak the word.”

– Johnnie Colemon’s, It Works If You Work It, pg. 64

 

Let’s pray:
God of Truth,

I give thanks that the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart are acceptable in Your sight. My power-filled words agree with my spiritual nature and
my spiritual inheritance is made manifest here and now!

Praise God. Amen.
