Death and life are in the power of the tongue; and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof (Proverbs 18:21 – New King James Version) . . . The power is in your hand to choose poison or fruit (Proverbs 18:21, The Message Bible)
Your tongue plays a very important role in determining your destiny in that it conveys what your heart is feeling at any given time. Each time we speak, we are giving birth (life) to our thoughts. Those thoughts, over a period of time, then translate themselves into their physical equivalent . . . which will in turn affect our respective destinies. As a suggestion, be consciously aware of every word that comes out of your mouth.
When farmers plant seeds, they are expecting a certain kind of harvest based upon the type of seed sown as well as how much they have sown. And they know, without a doubt, that there will be a harvest, barring any unforeseen circumstances.
So, check yourself today–What words are you sowing? Are they words that would bear positive fruit or words of poison that would negatively impact your life? At times, the words that we repeat may not even be words that we truly believe—they may be words that we have heard over a period of years and have subliminally taken on these words as our own, only to find that they have no substantiation or meaning in our lives; but we’ve allowed these words to literally permeate our souls. I believe that the words you speak begin to create an environment that is in direct correlation to the type of words we have spoken, thus creating changes in our future.
Being that we are made in the image of Almighty God, we have the power to create or destroy the things in our lives. We also have the power to change our circumstances, but it begins in our “thought life”.
I challenge you today to sow (speak) positive words to your life (asking God for his help and guidance) . . . And watch over a period of time how your life will change for the better.
REMEMBER THAT THE POWER IS IN YOUR TONGUE!!
God bless you and grant you peace. 🙂
