About the Book

With over six thousand five hundred languages in the world, the following scripture pertains to every human being and their dialect. “For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned” (Matthew 12:37 NKJV). That’s a valid reason to learn the importance of our words in a society where many are deafeningly oblivious to the consequences of cursing and the importance of blessing.

Although we aren’t always aware of it, our lives have been affected by every word we’ve spoken, heard, or which entered our brains since the day we were born. Even while we were still in the womb, words had their impact on us. In fact, before the human race existed, words brought our fate. God simply uttered words and creation began.

God made man and gave us the amazing gift of expressing ourselves. Unlike animals who cannot articulate and verbalize mind and heart, we were given speech and the command of our words. But sadly, our twenty-first-century world is blaring with the irresponsible use of words. There is widespread cursing, slander, lying, blaspheming, and evil speaking.

Heart Words will show the need to use words prudently because of their profound influence. Readers will see how fulfillment, joy, prosperity, health, discontentment, depression, poverty, and sickness pertain to our words.
