The Power Of Words
The Law Of Words
Death and Life is in the power of the tongue and those who love it shall eat the fruit thereof (Prov 18:21). Jesus demonstrated this power in the book of Mark 11:14 saying “May no one ever eat fruit from you again,” speaking to the fig tree when he could not find figs from it in his time of hunger. Added to Proverbs 18:21 is Luke 10:19 which states that I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy and nothing will by any means harm you. Are you using your power to overcome the enemy or to give life to dead things in your life?
If you think that this is the sort of thing for the son of God and not you, you are wrong in your thinking. You have been giving permission to speak death or life and the choice to pick the one you prefer. If it is death then that is the result or fruit of speaking negatively about yourself, your job, your things, and your family. So don’t blame others when things go to ruin. Examine your speech. Is it in line with the quality of life you want for yourself and love ones? If not begin right now to change. How do you do that you might ask? Well, it is by simply speaking life. Say what you want to see happen for you. For example if your marriage is in trouble and you are fearful that you spouse may become unfaithful, don’t go about saying so to all who will listen. No! Say instead that my husband loves me as Christ loves the church, and I am not moved by what I see. Remain faithful and further confess that the word says that I reap what I sow therefore I am faithful to my husband and he cannot help but be faithful to me. In the event that you are tempted to be unfaithful rebuke that spirit of infidelity saying my body is the temple of the Holy Ghost therefore I will not defile my temple by committing adultery.
When you hear the word of God it should do two things; give you knowledge and become a part of you. Like your hair on your head – Faith is what it develops in you so that when the evil one who is the devil, or your flesh wants you to be disobedient to Gods LAW, you boldly combat them with your confidence in God and his word which is your faith.
Many of you are in job environments that you created by what you have been saying. In marriages or without your spouses by what you have confessed over their lives not realizing you share that same life. You cannot expect to prophesy death, ruin, or destruction over your husband or wife’s life and expect to be happy with that person and the life you have together. Hate cannot breed love, neither can infidelity bring you fidelity, nor can speaking poverty bring you wealth.
“‘If you can’?” said Jesus, “Everything is possible for one who believes.” Therefore there is hope for everyone who believes and for every situation that they believe can be changed from death to life by speaking words that brings life.
