Recognizing how the words we speak can actually put a curse on our financial picture

Words That Curse Our Finances
by Dave Shoemaker

Without even thinking about what words you actually use in your daily talk about finances, you might be creating an environment that causes a curse to settle over your financial situation. In the book of James, Chapter 3 verse 10 (NKJ), we are told that “out of the same mouth proceeds blessing and cursing.”

The dictionary defines cursing as bringing harm or evil on someone. If you are finding that your financial picture is not where you want it, start really listening to the actual words or phrases you speak.

Words or phrases such as, “We’ll never be able to afford that”, or “I could never make enough money to have that or go there” are actually proclamations, from your own mouth, that put you in line for a curse to exist over your finances.

Proverbs 12:13-14 (NKJ) reminds us that “an evil man is enslaved by the true confession of his lips but the righteous escapes from trouble. From the fruit of his words a man is satisfied with good, and the work of a man’s hands comes back to him.”

Your words are no joking matter. If you have accepted Christ as your personal Lord and Savior you are a new creation, and you are an heir to all that God has planned. Refresh and overcome your mind with God’s Word, and live out the fullness that is yours in Christ.
