Proverbs 12:25

“Anxiety in a man's heart weighs it down, But a good word makes it glad.” (NASB)


“Anxiety (de'agah: carefulness, fear, heaviness, sorrow) in a man's heart (leb: mind, understanding, inner man, will, seat of emotions and passions) weighs it down (shachah: worship, bow, bow down, reverence, fall down, stoop), But a good (towb: better, well, best, merry, fair, prosperity, precious, fine, agreeable, pleasant) word makes it glad (samach: rejoice, joyful, exult).”


Anxiety and heaviness in a man’s inner being causes it to stoop down and bow to sorrow, but a pleasant and fair word makes it rejoice and be glad.


There is much power in our words! What you speak determines what you are. It is not some new name it and claim it or oddball self-centered program. I challenge you to speak the Word today. Speak words of life. Speak of hope and blessings upon you and your family. Expect victory. Let the words of your mouth be filled with good words today.
