Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit. – Proverbs 18:21
The tongue is the most powerful weapon God gave mankind. In it lies the power of life and death, i.e. the tongue can open doors of peace, joy & prosperity; and if misused, it can open the door of misfortune and losses. God created the world with His spoken words and He made us in His likeness, so we can also use words to frame our world.
Words are containers of power. Until you release power through words, you will remain a victim in the arena of life and success. You must make your tongue your ally and not your enemy; many people have used their tongues to put themselves in difficult situations. Life is like a restaurant; what you order for is what is brought to you. So, what ‘menus’ of life are you daily ordering with your tongue – blessings or setbacks, health or sickness, favor or ill-luck? The choice is yours!
I remember the year 2000 vividly, I was engaged to my fiancée (now my wife), but I had nothing to my name – I was broke and disgusted, without a job, squatting with a friend, and nothing was working out for me. When I went home to see my parents that December, I told my dad about my intentions to get married in 2001, but he laughed knowing my situation then, and asked me if I thought that getting married was just a function of mouthing words. Ha-ha! The light came on. I saw that I could indeed make my marriage happen with faith filled words; so, I started confessing the Word of God daily over my situation (I did this daily for about 6 months without fail), and in no time the trajectory of my life changed drastically – I got 2 cars before the year ended, got a job, got blessed with enough money to rent a house, settled my pressing bills, and paid for my wedding, debt free. Moreover, I had enough left over to put into savings. That is how powerful our words can be when we release them. Literally speaking, I got married and paid for all I wanted in 2001 with my mouth!
What would you love to see in your life? Decide today to use your tongue (words) cautiously and also deliberately to open the doors to the kind of life you desire.
+ I uproot every negative word I have spoken over my life, there shall be a crop failure and I declare it shall not bear fruit in my life.
+ Every faith filled word I speak will not fail to do what I have planned it to do; it will go into the world, carry out my words, and bring in my desired results in Jesus’ name.
