The Power Of The Tongue

  God created with words.  We, being created in the image of God, have more creative power in our words than most people realize.  Our words set up a framework for the reality that will ultimately take place.  Our words are like seeds planted in the ground that will germinate and bring forth after their kind.  We become prophets when we speak either negative or postive words.  For instance, if we say, “I can’t,” about any matter, it’s probably true that we can’t.  A Christian would be better suited to say, “I don’t want to,” because the fact is, God’s word says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”  While it is true that we speak what we think, it is also true that we come to think what we speak.  When we speak something, it becomes established in our mind.  This is why the Bible says that “if we confess with our mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in our heart that God has reaised Him from the dead, we will be saved.”  The word confess means to “say the same thing,” and in this case, it means to completely agree with God and say what God says about it.  God could have “thought” the creation into existence, but He didn’t.  The major turning points in our life cannot be established and brought to reality with mere mental activity, regardless of how spiritual it may be, because God has ordained that we speak words, words consistent with His word, on such matters.  I’m sure there are exections for those who are mute and completely unable to speak, but for most of us, that’s not a problem. Proverbs 18:21 says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue…”
