Joyce Meyer – Change Your Words


Hear, for I will speak excellent and princely things; and the opening of my lips shall be for right things. — Proverbs 8:6 (AMPC)

Adapted from the resource Power Thoughts – by Joyce Meyer

In today’s scripture, Solomon made a decision about how he would talk, and we should do the same thing. Just like we can direct our thoughts, we can also direct our words with God’s help; we can choose to speak excellent, positive things.

Our words affect us, the people around us, and even what God is able to do for us. You can’t have a negative mouth and a positive life; it just won’t work. In 1 Peter 3:10, the apostle Peter teaches us that if we want to enjoy life and see good days—even in the middle of trials—we have to keep our words free of evil. That means we need to choose to speak God-honoring, life-giving words that push us in the direction we want to go.

What kind of life do you want? Do you want an excellent life? If so, then you need to be speaking excellent words. As you’re intentional to change your words, you will change your life!

Prayer Starter: Father, please help me to choose life-giving words today. Thank You for giving me such a great example to follow in Your Word! In Jesus’ Name, amen.
