Current Study

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 tonguelipsmouth, 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.

  • When we walk and speak in the power of the Holy Spirit, we defeat the enemy.
  • When we abide in Christ, His Spirit flows from our lives in word and deed everywhere we go.
  • When we enter a place where fear is evident, we can come in the spirit of peace and speak words of life.
  •  

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:

  • A fountain of life - “The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life, but violence overwhelms the mouth of the wicked” (verse 11). The mouth of the righteous is a well of life, But violence covers the mouth of the wicked. (They speak hope for the future, becoming a fountain of life to others)
     
  • Discerning lips - “Wisdom is found on the lips of the discerning, but a rod is for the back of him who lacks judgment” (verse 13). Wisdom is found on the lips of him who has understanding, But a rod is for the back of him who is devoid of understanding. (They speak forth wisdom and save others from ruins)
     
  • Holds his tongue - “When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise” (verse 19). In the multitude of words sin is not lacking, But he who restrains his lips is wise. (They know when silence is more powerful than words)
     
  • Choice silver - “The tongue of the righteous is choice silver, but the heart of the wicked is of little value” (verse 20). The tongue of the righteous is choice silver; The heart of the wicked is worth little.
     
  • Nourishes many - “The lips of the righteous nourish many, but fools die for lack of judgment” (verse 21). The lips of the righteous feed many, But fools die for lack of wisdom. (Their words feed and nourish many others)
     
  • Brings forth wisdom - “The mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom, but a perverse tongue will be cut out”(verse 31). The mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom, But perverse tongue will be cut out.
     
  • Knows what is fitting - “The lips of the righteous know what is fitting, but the mouth of the wicked only what is perverse” (verse 32). The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable, But the mouth of the wicked what is perverse.

(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.”
