That in blessing I will bless thee, Genesis 22:17
bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; Matt 5:44
Blessing others blesses you. Since you are created in the image of God your words can have great impact. No other creature is created in God’s image. When God speaks worlds are created and destroyed. When a creature created in his image speaks on earth what happens? Is it of no effect? What does the bible say about the power of your words? Who has taught us to take what we say so lightly? The world? God teaches us differently. Our words have power.
The spoken blessing is a powerful spiritual weapon with enduring impact. By giving spoken blessings, we can see healing brought to aching souls and restoration brought to bruised relationships. Such wonders are accomplished by the power of God’s Spirit through the agency of spoken blessings, just as Scripture affirms: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Our words have the power to crush or to heal, to break bones or to plant a tree of life where none has grown before.
