The Power of the Tongue…

Proverbs 18:21, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”

The power of the human tongue is one of the most misunderstood gifts from God. The Lord above not only equipped those who believe with the Holy Spirit, but also with the creative ability to create and also destroy, with the power of their tongue. In being made in the image of the living God (Genesis 1:27) we as his sons and daughters have this capability given to us. Hebrews 11:3 states, “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.” This is a very important teaching that is commonly avoided, due to the enemy capitalizing on our own ability to destroy ourselves. Satan only has the power to destroy the things that we allow him to.

Remember Faith works by receiving, believing and then speaking the Word of God over our life. It is always mindful to speak love, hope, blessings over the lives and situations to release the positive energy within us given by God. The tongue is a activation switch that allows the Holy Spirit to go to work in our lives. If you believe that health is in your future speak it. If you believe your child will go to college speak it. If you desire a loved one to get saved, speak it into existence. Receiving and believing is a requirement but the release of energy is in your tongue. In the same breath the tongue can be used to curse us as well.

When we speak negative words they have the same ramifications over our lives. If we ever are down we should never say negative thoughts developed in our minds. This is why Proverbs 18:21 says DEATH as well is in the tongue. We can curse ourselves by way of negative words even if at the time we speak them we really do not mean them. The spiritual realm does not know what sarcasm is. What we speak is what will happen. Ephesians 4:29 states, “Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.” Release the positive energy of your words today to bless others! So that they too can come into the knowledge of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Shalom…
