The Art of Surrender Day 18: Surrender to your Super Power

“There is something about words. In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner. Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts. Inside you they work their magic.” 

― Diane SetterfieldThe Thirteenth Tale







I love this quote, and read it often to remind myself just how powerful our words really are.

Our words are our Super Power.

So, that being said, are you one of the good guys in the Super Hero comic, or are you the villain?

That is a very powerful question that you should be asking yourself often.

In (Proverbs 18:21) we read, “The tongue has the power of life and death,
    and those who love it will eat its fruit.”

William Booththe founder of the Salvation Army, which is a great social and spiritual organization, was confronted with a serious financial crisis. He was urged by those closest to him to write a letter to his previous supporters.

He might have been pressured to write a compelling letter about how much money was needed in order to make ends meet.

He could have gone on and on about the good they were doing.

Like many organizations today, he could have filled the letter with the stories of desperation or of people whose lives were changed because of the Salvation Army.

Booth, however, took a totally different approach to asking his constituency for help.

He took up his pen and boldly wrote only one word: others.

He sent the letter out, and the organization was generously supported through this very difficult time.


Your words are one of the most powerful forces you possess.

The spoken word has the power to build people up and give them pleasure, as well as to destroy them and zap their pleasure.

Just look at the following list, and I think that you’ll get the point:

  • You’re so smart.

  • You can do anything.

  • You’re capable.

  • You’re so stupid.

  • You can’t do anything.

  • You’re incapable.

You can easily feel the strength of the words in the left column, along with the pain of those in the right column—especially if you’ve heard them before.

I want you to take a moment and consider how you use the power of your words.

Think first in terms of your primary relationship with yourself and your spouse or significant other, parents, children, and God.

Are your words mostly encouraging?

Or are they rough, critical and sarcastic?

For an illustration,let’s go back to the scripture we just read from Proverbs. In that verse, our we are told that our words have the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

So, here’s a way to look at it:

If your words were fruit, what would others taste from you?

You can pause and think about this.

It’s critical in a pleasure lifestyle to give good fruit to all people and especially to those closest to you, your family.

Then journey down and examine your secondary relationships:

That is, your friends, co-workers, and neighbors.

What kind of fruit are they getting from you?

Then look at the acquaintances and strangers you meet—what about them?

If you question how you’re doing, keep track for fun sometime.

Take a piece of paper and record the negative words you’re speaking on one side and the encouraging words on the other.

You might be surprised by how the experiment turns out.

Either way, you do have the power to positively impact others, so I encourage you to use words regularly and recognize that they are your super power.

And, once again, let’s ask ourselves the question,

Are we the good guy or the villain?

Words are creative.

You create your life with your words.

Actually, you prophesy your own future with your words.

Sounds comes before sight.

The law of attraction states that whatever you give your attention, energy and words to is what you create in your own life.

Scientists have discovered that they can measure the vibrational level of words.


I recently read a study that I found to be very interesting because of my love of plants. My home is filled with big, healthy plants that are my companions.

In this study, people would talk to their plants, something that I do every day.










They had two control groups.

One group was told to speak positive words to their plants such as “you are such a beautiful plant.

The 2nd group was instructed to speak negative words to their plants.

The results were astounding.

Both set of plants continued to received that same level of light and water.

The plants whose owners spoke positive words to them seem to flourish, bloom and grow.

The plants whose owners were told to speak negative words began to notice that their plants became stagnant, whither and some died.

The Power of Words!

Of course, most of you know about the remarkable scientific discovery of. Dr. Masaru Emoto, a creative and visionary Japanese researcher.

Dr. Emoto conducted a study on human consciousness and words on water.

A photograph was taken of 2 glasses of water.

Dr. Emoto had participants to speak negative words to one glass of water and positive words to the other glass.

Before and after pictures were taken.

An amazing discovery was revealed.


The molecular structure of water was affected by human vibrational energy thoughts and words.

The glass of water that had positive words spoken to it was more beautiful, glowing and clear.

The glass of water that had negative words spoken to it changed from a clear form to distorted one.

Your words are so power that they can change things.

The bible states that Life and Death are in the power of the tongue.

So what have you been saying about your life?

Maybe it’s the words that you have been speaking.

Remember, your confession precedes your possession.

You possess what you confess.

Realization follows confession.

Start today to use your very own, God-given super power…your words!
