Have you ever stopped to think about the power of your speech? According to Proverbs 18:21 you have the power of life and death in your tongue. That’s amazing strength, and not to be taken lightly. Consider the possibilities your miracle working words possess. With all this power in your tongue, perhaps it would be worthwhile to choose words with care.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit, Proverbs 18:21.
Everyday we are given opportunities to release the power of life and death with our words. According to God’s Word what we say really matters. What are we saying? What should we say? And what should we not say?
He who has knowledge spares his words, and a man of understanding is of a calm spirit. Even a fool is counted wise when he holds his peace; when he shuts his lips, he is considered perceptive, Proverbs 17:27-28.
If we will learn how to hold our tongues we will keep ourselves from a heap of unnecessary troubles.
Whoever guards his mouth and tongue keeps his soul from troubles, Proverbs 21:23.
The power of our speech runs deep into the affairs of life and our words can be life-giving. Are we using them in a godly and mature manner? Are we producing what God desires us to produce–life?
The words of a man’s mouth are like deep waters [copious and difficult to fathom]; the fountain of [mature, godly] wisdom is like a bubbling stream [sparkling, fresh, pure, and life-giving], Proverbs 18:4, AMP.
I say it this way in my new book, The Prophetic and Healing Power of Your Words, “God creates the power of the tongue to release healing, to create miracles, and to build one another up in the faith–not to tear down and discourage one another.” If you want to learn more about the prophetic and healing power of your words check out the free preview of chapter 1.
