Mothers must be careful when talking to their children; wives when talking to their husbands, and so on. Once it’s said, it’s said…
Do you realize that your words, the words that you speak out of your mouth everyday, have the power of death and life?
You speak either blessing or cursing when you talk. Your words are spirit. -The saying, sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me", is a lie because God's Word says the just opposite: "Death and life are in the power of the tongue and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof". (Proverbs 18:21)
Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
Do you notice the arrows that fly off the tongue?
The tongues that are swords?
Where do this arrows land, what do these words pierce?
"I will watch my ways and keep my tongue from sin; I will put a muzzle on my mouth as long as the wicked are in my presence."
They that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Did you get that?
You are eating the fruit of your tongue, your words, in your life. you control your circumstances by the things you are speaking. Do you find yourself ever saying things like, "This is killing me" or "I'm getting sick", "I will never get out of debt", "I'm depressed", "my kids will never get off drugs". etc?
When you say such things you are confessing those things in your own life, or even the life of someone else. Listen to what God says about the subject, "The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips". (Proverbs 16:23)
The heart of the wise teaches his mouth. Are you wise?
Do you want to be wise?
Then teach your mouth to say positive things over yourself and your family. Speak healing over your body, speak protection over your family, speak success over your life. Curse diseases, curse sicknesses, speak death to the cancer with your tongue!
God gave you that authority in the words that you speak. Christians have for so long not understood this authority. Learn not to SAY negative things about you or anyone else.
Jesus knew about this Kingdom principal when He said, "The words that I speak to you are Spirit, and they are life". (John 6:63)
Jesus understood the authority of His words.
Remember when He spoke to the fig tree and cursed it?
What happened to it?
It withered and died. He killed it with His words. (Matthew 21:19)
Are you killing anything with your words or are you speanking life to yourself and your family?
James chapter 3 says this, "For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body. Behold, we put bits in the horses' mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body. Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.
Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!"
Your tongue controls your life just like the small rudder controls a large ship!
We can control our words, if the Holy Spirit help us to do it. As long as the Holy Spirit work within us, our tongues won't be dangerous.
Next time you speak, be careful what you say...
God bless all of you in Jesus name!
