It might sound humorous, but can you talk yourself to death? It’s an interesting question to look at, especially when this cliché has been around for many years, “You’re going to talk yourself to death”.  And since clichés have been around for many years, most have grown up with them and automatically use them without ever giving thought to what they are actually saying.  But it is time to take a look at this old saying and hold it up to the light of God’s Word.

What does the Bible have to say about the way you speak and about your life in general? Let’s look at the following scripture and read for ourselves. We’ll start with Proverbs 18:21, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue…” What did the Bible just say? There’s the power of what in our tongues? Life and death. I don’t know about you, but this sounds kind of serious to me. And to think that the tongue (our spoken language) has power to produce anything is a bit mind-boggling. But if the Holy Bible says it, then I believe it. After all it is our standard to live by, it is the infallible word of God.

And the second part of the verse has this to say, “and those who love it will eat its fruit.” I guess the next question to ask ourselves is “What type of fruit are we going to indulge upon?” Poisonous fruit or life-giving fruit. Holy Spirit is always visual with me, and as I write this last question I envision a large wooden bowl of fruit set on the table before me, some of it is poisonous, and the other fruit is full of life. It’s pretty obvious which fruit I would take and eat of–life-giving, of coarse.

So too it is with our words. And our precious Holy Spirit has set before us a beautiful bowl of powerful fruit to partake of everyday–spoken words. Some will harm us if not used properly, others will heal us in spirit, soul, and in our physical body as well. And we get to choose which fruit we will dine upon today.

And this leads us back to the original question, “Can you talk yourself to death?” According to God’s word, Yes, one can.

  1. Becky, I’m continuing to pray for you and your family. This devotion about our words is very timely. I’m taking my Mom back to the cancer dr today. She has claimed the cancer and I know she has been healed. The dr said a year ago she would be gone in 6 months. Prayers poured out for her all over the country. She has been able to stay in her home and now her blood levels are dropping again. I am praying against false symptoms, but she has not been able to do that in the past. I am praying that she would know how powerful her words can be. Thank you, Becky, for allowing God to use you to help others know His word.

    1. Dear Cindy,
      Your mom needs a lot of encouragement to overcome this attack again. You are correct our words have power and we cannot claim sickness as our own. Hugs, Becky
