What Are You Speaking?

I’m sure you’re familiar with the Creation account in Genesis 1-2, and you may know that in Genesis 2:7 God breathed into man’s nostrils the breath of life and he became a living being. There’s something more profound in this passage that I never knew until a friend of mine wrote about it on her blog (emmaus road ministries). The literal translation from the Hebrew doesn’t say man became a living being; it says man became a speaking spirit. God created all fish, fowl, and the animals but did not give them a speaking spirit. Only man—you and I—have that ability because we are created in God’s image. God has given us not only the ability but the power to speak forth His Word. And, we know there are consequences when we speak other things contrary to life. We’ll look more into the importance of what we say, but recognize that God’s Word, full of power, in your mouth has the ability to change you, your family, and your situation. What are you speaking?
