Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it for death or life. – Proverbs 18:21
I think it’s important that we really get this Scripture. Our tongue is VERY powerful. It can produce life or death…our choice.
If you are someone who spends a lot of time using your tongue for…
- Bad mouthing yourself by saying things like; I’m stupid, I’m fat, I’m ugly, I’ll never, I can’t, What’s wrong with me, I’m such a this and I’m such a that…
- Verbally judging others….
- Speaking negatively…
Then you will produce the fruit of death in your life. We need to speak the Truth about ourselves. We need to understand who we are in Christ.
We need to use our tongues to say things like…
- I have the mind of Christ, which means I am pretty smart.
- I was created in the image of God, which means I am GORGEOUS!
- I can do ALL things through Christ Who strengthens me.
If we speak the Truth of what God says about us over our lives, we will produce an awesome harvest of life, and be much happier, filled with peace, and able to go the distance.
Start thinking BEFORE you speak. Change your mind and speak the Truth…even if you don’t believe it with your “mind” right away. After speaking Life for a while, you will not only begin to believe the Truth, you will KNOW the Truth, and the Truth WILL set you free!
This wasn’t my brilliant idea…it’s in the WORD, and the Word does NOT lie! Trust God…believe what God says about you in His Word…know who you are…and SPEAK IT OUT LOUD!
Use your tongue to produce LIFE!
Daddy God, thank You for giving me the opportunity to change my life for the better simply by putting the principals of Your Mighty Word into daily practice. Please help me to remember Your Truth and to speak it out every day. I am Your precious baby girl and I want to WALK in the knowledge of that. Thank You! In Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
In His Love and Service,
