Today I want to stress the importance of our words. Our words are alive and creative; and the spoken word that is heard will come to pass.
When we hear our words (and the words of others), the more likely it will be for us to believe them. And whatever we believe will become manifested in our lives . . . so be careful of the words you say, and what you hear.
The message I watched today by Joseph Prince mentioned briefly the power of our tongues. In his sermon entitled “Jesus’ Love Unveiled in the Song of Songs“, he read Song of Solomon 4:11 which stated “Thy lips, O my spouse, drop as the honeycomb: honey and milk are under thy tongue;” Joseph Prince reminded us that the Lord brought the children of Israel into a land flowing with “milk and honey”; and in this verse, it is as if God is saying “Don’t you know your promise land is under your tongue?” When you speak (faith words) you enjoy the promise land.
Proverbs 18:21 states “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.“
If we speak words of doubt, fear, unbelief, and death – we will more than likely think over these words and begin to believe them. When we believe, we will ultimately reap the fruit of these words. “For as a person thinks in his heart, so is he:” (Proverbs 23:7a)
On the other hand, when we speak words of confidence, faith, belief in God’s promises, and life – we reap the fruit of those words. Remember, whatever we say and believe . . . we create, for the power is in our tongues.
