The Power of the Tongue

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit. – Prov. 18:21

He was short for the rent… again. After leaving his second job, he sat in his car, sighed, and shouted, “I will never make it!” A battle of thoughts followed. I can’t provide for my wife and children. I’m such a failure. He struggled until, at last, an awakening thought broke through. Oh, I shouldn’t have said that! God, help me!

The Holy Spirit showed him his words were agreeing with satan’s lies. By God’s grace, he began to counter the lies with the truth: God, You are my helper, my provider, my deliverer! You always make a way of escape. I trust You. Show me Your ways. His situation changed. His boss gave him an advance, and a month later, a promotion.

Sometimes unspoken words are as powerful as those spoken. We learn to take negative thoughts captive by speaking the truth aloud, instead of silently accepting the lie. As we speak words of life, words of death lose their power. God’s Word builds up, edifies, and exhorts both the hearers and the speakers. We go forth in the name of Jesus and declare His Word of Truth,  from glory to glory!
