“By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.” (Proverb 11:11, KJV).
A lot of the times we think that the responsibility of building a nation lies in the hands of the leadership of that nation. This apparently is not true. The growth and development of every country lies mainly in the hands of its citizenry. An exalted nation is achieved by the blessing of upright citizens living therein.
Upright people do the right things. They live by the rules and regulation of their country. They are honest people. They shun corruption and vices that threaten the peace, growth or development of their country. They seek to do things that will make their world better.
For such people, when they open their mouth to bless their country, it works. There is power in the words of the upright. When they speak good about their nation, such words have the capacity to exalt the nation. In the same way the words of an evil person will tear the nation apart. Words are powerful and they can work on anything. Whatever object is spoken to takes the life resident in the word to make it a reality.
Learn to say good things about your country. Never speak words of disbelief about your country/city/home. Even your life can be likened to be a city. Always proclaim the right words. The effect of these words takes its power from your nature. If you are good, your good words will produce good. If you are evil, speaking evil words, evil realities will be the effect. Stop complaining about leaders. Stop abusing them. The greatness of your country lies in two things you can do. Be upright and pronounce blessing upon it. Great day my friend. #BeInspired.
