The Incredible Power of the Tongue
Scriptural Reference: “A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof” – Proverbs 18:20-21
The words of today are the harvest of tomorrow. Today is a sum total of many things you said in years past or maybe things you refused to say. Your tongue creates your world. In the school of divine protection, your tongue plays a major role.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, so your tongue has incredible power. The scripture did not say death and life are in the power of the devil, No! It’s in your tongue. More often than not, it is your tongue that gives the devil a pathway to your affairs. He that opens wide his mouth seeketh destruction. You can’t afford to utter careless words about your life. Words are seeds. If you are not ready to tame your tongue by the Spirit, then you are not ready for total protection. If you keep talking death, calamity, accidents etc, then it will not be the fault of ‘death’ to take a hold on you. The question is what have you been saying? Many of us need to repent of evil speaking and wrong confessions. Your words are seeds awaiting the harvest.
Do not kill yourself with your tongue.
Daily digest: Learn to speak like David, ‘I shall not die but live to declare the works of the Lord (Psalm 118:17); Proverbs 18:10; Psalm 91:7-8; Psalm 91: 10-12; Psalm 121:7-8
Prayer: Lord, I know my tongue often gets ahead of my mind and heart. I am quick to speak and I repent of the many thoughtless things I have spoken. Please help me to say the right words always. Amen.
