Hey, God TV family. I want to share something with you guys about our words. We homeschool our gal. She is 10 going on 11, so we’re constantly looking to try to find fun projects to incorporate into her homeschooling, and something that we kept hearing about was this, you can Google it, YouTube it, find it. We used rice. So rice and water. We had two jars. There was the same amount of rice, same amount of water in these jars. And one jar, we would speak blessings over every day, and the other jar we would speak curses over. We wanted to see how that would affect the rice. I know this sounds crazy. I challenge you to test it out with your homeschoolers, if you have one.
What was crazy was, after I think it was 15 days, we were in and the smell from the one that we spoke curses over was, I can’t even, like it was putrid. We had to keep it in the garage. And the one that we spoke blessings over, it just had this like smell of rice. It was completely different. I know that there have been scientific studies about this and on plants and different things, but it was just such a practical way for us to show our daughter how the Word is so true, that “The power of life and death are in our tongue,” Proverbs 18:21.
And so I just want to encourage you to be reminded. The rice, the stinky rice. It really does work, of just watching our words, speaking blessings over our family, watching what we’re speaking over ourselves. And so, I just want to pray for you today that you would be mindful of your words. I just pray that you would be someone who is filled with blessing and life, that you would be known for speaking life over those around you. That you would speak life over your kids, over your marriage, over your spouse, over your business. And I just declare that over you today; be encouraged. Don’t have that stinky putrid rice stuff going on in your home. Let’s speak blessings. Blessings over you guys.
