“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof” Proverbs 18:21

As you go through life, it is important to be careful about what you say. Once you say something it is impossible to take it back. Words can be used to tear you down, or words can be used to lift you up.  There are times when it may not be what you say that matters; it is how you say what you said, which affects people and situations. The most powerful thing you possess is the words coming from your mouth. The tongue is sharp and can cut like you would not believe; it can also bring comfort to the most hopeless situation.

The Scripture reminds you: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”

I encourage you––use your tongue to bring life and not death to people and to situations.  When you are going through trouble water and things are not looking good use the power of your tongue to speak life into your situation. When you are going through trouble and say things are impossible and you cannot do it, you have just given up and you will not be able to do anything.

Take the word “can’t” out of your vocabulary. Speak life into every dead situation in your life.  Speak positive to yourself and to those around you.  What are you speaking to your situation today?  No matter how long you have been going through a storm, how low the clouds may be hanging in your life, or how bad the wind may be blowing, you are encouraged to look at that situation and say “the storm is passing over”.

No matter how bad yesterday was, you have to speak to yourself, that today is going to be good. Don’t allow people or anything else to convince you that you cannot make it. Always speak positive things into your life, understanding that you have the power of life and death in the things you say about yourself.

Declaration: I speak life into every situation I am facing right now, and because I am using the power of my tongue to speak life, I am assured that every dead situation is coming back to LIFE.
