Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Prov. 18:21.
The words you spoke out of your mouth six months ago, you are living today. The words you speak out of your mouth today you will live tomorrow. You see Satan has no power over a Christian. God already defeated Satan and he cannot touch you, harm you, or alter your life in any way. He is chained up in a wheel chair, bound and gagged. However, we give him power by the words we speak.
If you are speaking negative into your life, negative happens. I hear people say all the time, “If it ain’t one thing, it’s another.” Well no duh, you keep speaking that garbage and garbage keeps happening. We have to control our tongue! You have to speak the promises of God into your life and into the life of your children.
That’s why it is so important to know God’s promises. You see, it doesn’t matter what your circumstances are, it doesn’t matter what your bank statement says- the promise is that God will supply all your needs according to his riches in glory. Phil. 4:19. So you speak, “thank you God that I have more than enough. Thank you God that my basket is full, and my store house is overflowing.”
Speak faith not fact! It doesn’t matter what the doctor’s report is. God says, by his stripes you were healed. I Peter 2:24.Speak healing into your life and body.
Parents, speak faith into your children’s lives. Praise God for your children being Godly and fulfilling God’s purpose in their life. Praise God that your children are well behaved kids that people brag about how good they are.
Remember, you get what you say! If you say to the mountain, be thou removed and cast into the sea and you believe it, the mountain has to move! The mountain does not have a choice!
Proverbs 21:23 says, “Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepth is soul from trouble.” We have to change the way we speak. We have to make a decision to change the words that come out of our mouth. If you do say something negative, and you catch yourself, just come right back with the promise!
The tongue is a little member of our body but it turns our whole body and controls our life. Horses are turned by bits in their mouth. Large ships are turned by small helms. And people, you and me, are controlled by our tongue. So the most important thing you can do right now, is control your tongue. If you put your tongue under submission, your entire body will be under submission.
So when you pray, thank God for fulfilling the promises in your life that he promised. You are entitled to those promises through the New Covenant! When you are talking to others, speak faith into your life. Don’t concern yourself with the circumstance. Don’t magnify your little problem and give it any power by your words. Take that little problem and look at it as already defeated, already fixed and speak faith into your life and at your problem. If you are not sure the promise, get in your Bible. Get in a Bible based Church and learn God’s Word. It is life changing! Remember, God already won! God already fixed your problem. What you got to do is believe it! If you believe it, you will speak it! And that’s the LIFE.
If you are facing a problem and would like prayer warriors on your side, send me an email. I have a prayer team that will pray for you and your family. We believe in the power of God and have seen his miraculous works in our lives and are excited to see him pour out his spirit on all flesh!
