Speak Those Things Into Your Life


Speak Those Things Into Your Life

"A man's stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth, and from the produce of his lips he shall be filled." (Proverbs 18:20)

We’ve all heard the bible verse that says “Death and Life are in the power of the tongue” (Proverbs 18:21) but what exactly does this mean? Well this is something I’ve contemplated many times in life. The subject of how much power we as human beings actually have over not only ours but the lives of others. See what I believe is God has given us a remarkable power that some of us don’t even realize we have. It’s the power to speak good and bad into our lives.

We’ve all at one time or another notice the power of words rather the situation was tiny or colossal. Like how a simple compliment can brighten the most dark gloomy of days or a slick remark can blackout the sunshine. This is about that and much more. This is about the power we all have hidden within ourselves to change the course of our own lives. It’s about believing in your ability to make it better for yourself our worse. It’s time to stop letting everyone else speak over your life, time for you to take control. It’s time to stop bringing destruction into other peoples lives as well.

"A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit." (Proverbs 15:4)

I’ve been a victim of not only letting everyone else speak over my life, but speaking negativity into my own life. The power of words is amazing. God himself shows examples of that throughout the bible. One of the most profound examples is in Genesis, when he creates the world. He could have easily just snapped his fingers or simply think light into existence. Yet he chooses to enlighten the dark with the words “Let there be light”. We also have the power to speak the “light” into the darkness of our lives. It’s just a matter of once again having faith.

"A man's stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth, and from the produce of his lips he shall be filled." (Proverbs 18:20)

We can bring prosperity into our own world if we keep speaking about it. If you really believe that God is the same God he was yesterday and the day before. Then you must know he hears your every wish and knows your every desire. He hears your cries when you’re alone in the dark and your silent whimpers in the large crowds. He has equipped us with the power to move mountains by faith. These mountains can consist of finical issues, personal struggles, etc, etc. It’s just a matter in having faith in what you’re saying. Because in the same sense of you speaking prosperity you can speak negativity, but continuing to down and doubt yourself.

We all get cast into the lions den to be devoured by our own personal plight. Yet by faith we have the power to be delivered from the jaws of death, if we would just believe it so. Yet a lot of the time we allow others to tell us we don’t have this power. We let them tell us, we can’t make it, we can’t achieve our goals, and we can’t find that miracle we so desperately need. Believe me, this not what God wills for you or me. There is nothing, nothing out of the range of his power. So there is nothing you can’t do!

You have the power to alter your life. Yet we allow these thoughts to sink into the back of our minds and drown us in the river of sorrow. Some of us (me included) suffer from such low self-esteem that we take the negative as gospel and then begin to infect our selves. My question to you is this, how do you expect to get out of a hole if try to you won’t climb? The power of life and death is in the tongue and yet we often choose to kill ourselves.

God wants us to realize that we are more than what it may appear. He wants us to know that we have the power to bring joy, love, and even wealth into our own lives. You have to believe it though. You’ve also got to be willing to believe that you aren’t what someone else says you are, or that you are not destine for what everyone claims. If that were the case, then David would have never gotten on that battlefield when everyone told him “you’re just a boy, go tend to the sheep”. He’d of never defeated Goliath if he believed in him saying “You just a scrawny kid”. It all comes down to what you believe. Do you believe what everyone is speaking into your life? Or do you believe in that you are more than a conquer. That what you are is destine for greatness, for peace, for love, for happiness?

"The mouth of the righteous is a well of life, but violence covers the mouth of the wicked." (Proverbs 10:11)

Speak those things into your life. Speak the good, speak the joy, speak the happiness, but don’t just speak it, believe it! Believe that God is GOD and has the power to reward your faith. Haters hate, that’s their job. The devil hated on God and got cast down; Cain hated on Abel, even Jesus was hated on. There will always be haters; there will always be critics, gossipers and so on. Some one’s always going to doubt you and try to bring you down. Yet you have to not let them speak into your life what your life is about, you have to have the faith that you have the power to speak good into your world. They power of life and death is in your tongue, so what will you speak?

"Whoever guards his mouth and tongue keeps his soul from troubles." (Proverbs 21:23)
