“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” Proverbs 18:21
Don’t join the company of those who speak negative things about themselves, because your words carry power. The Bible says in Ecc. 8:4 “Where the word of a king is, there is power …” and you are kings and priests unto God, so your words carry power.
The scripture for today made that very clear: death and life are in the power of the tongue. In other words, the choice is yours. When the Bible says death and life are in the power of the tongue, it did not exclude your tongue. If you have mouth and you can speak, the death and life are in your tongue. Whether you are enjoying life or death depends on what you are saying.
If you are speaking about death repeatedly, then it will come to pass. No matter how negative your situation is, speak life to it, do not repeat death. Choose to superimpose the Word of God over the situation. Yes, things may not be the way you want it now, but rather than sit down moaning and repeating the negative situation, speak life. Declare what the Word of God has spoken concerning it. Find the relevant scripture and make it your confession.
If it is in your health, remind yourself that by the stripes of Jesus, you have been made whole. Lay hands on the affected area and declare the Word of God over it. Heaven and earth may pass away, but the Word of God will never return void. Keep speaking it. Say it in the morning, noon and night. Don’t get tired or weary.
Form a habit of speaking the word; don’t say it once and stop. Be consistent in speaking over your life. Stand firm on the Word of God and the Word will produce in your life.
