Walking in the Favor of the Lord: Say this with me: “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Glory would give us the Spirit of Wisdom, Revelation Knowledge and Favor, in Jesus Name Amen!
The words we use have tremendous power.
Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
The Power of the Tongue
A person can speak many words a minute and several thousand in an hour. The tongue has a powerful influence on others. God is looking for a holy life, and one of the key areas that we must guard with all diligence is our tongue.
The truth is, we all have problems with what we say.
That’s probably why the Bible says so much about the tongue. Proverbs is filled with verses about both the positive and negative aspects of the tongue. I counted the terms tongue, lips, mouth, and words, and they appear over 170 times in the Bible. We lived many years on a ship and remember how the small the rudder would steer our ship in huge storms.
James 3:4-5 Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires. 5 Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things.
See how great a forest a little fire kindles!
Speaking negatively is costly in the spiritual realm, while watching what we say can bring spiritual reward.
In Jericho, God’s people marched around the city in silence for six days. When they finally shouted on the seventh day, the walls came down immediately. Their silence and then shouting at the right time won them the victory.
If we guard our speech, we can win a great victory.
Our words can be kind and full of love. Our actions along with words spoken with gentleness, peace, and self-control demonstrate love even in the midst of our enemies. We read in Galatians 5:22-23, “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”
The Lips of the Righteous-Must have a skillful Tongue:
Speaking of the tongue and how to use it has a positive influence.
Speaking words skillfully increases our influence.
Understanding the power of the words we speak accomplish what we speak.
In Proverbs 10, we find seven characteristics of the lips of the righteous. When we refrain from critical and negative speech, we must replace it with uplifting, positive, and grace-filled words. Think about the words you speak. Are they uplifting and do they bring life to others?
Ask God to help you evaluate your speech as you read these verses:
(They express what is right and nurture the right in the hearts of those who follow)
Words create emotions and emotions create feelings and with feelings we create our desired outcome of our lives. That’s why it is very important to watch the words that you use on a daily basis because with them you are creating your reality.
So, choose the best words possible when describing yourself or what you wish to have. Speak as if you have what you desire “NOW” even if you do not believe it to be true. If you repeat your affirmations long enough your subconscious mind will accept it to be true. And a way will be made to bring all that you desire to you!
Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Numbers 6:24-26: “The Lord bless you and keep you; 25 The Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; 26 The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.”
