The power of the tongue

God empowers His children to create things that are not as though they are into existence with the use of the tongue. Our God did the same thing starting from the beginning when God used the tongue to release word which was released into the atmosphere that created the word (Genesis 1).jesus bible

The Spirit of God has this creative power, therefore has no limitations and it is the same power that God has given to His children which allows us to create things as His Spirit creates and incubates the ideas and the purposes of God. This is the reason why we find that whatever we say is what happens to us; “Not that what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but that which comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man” (Mathew 15:11).

As Children of God, we are completely responsible for what we talk about our lives, children, friends, relatives or anybody else that we have an opportunity to talk to. The bible tells us in the book of Proverbs that; “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they who love it shall eat the fruit thereof”. If you talk evil about yourself, you are just cursing yourself and you cannot expect anything good to come out for you.

Look at people who are too much about themselves (braggers as you may call them), in most cases you find that they are indeed successful because they are always talking good about themselves. And they indeed live the life that they brag about as they create things in the process of bragging as people continue to talk about them that they brag too much, but their tongue just help to agree with what they have already bragged about therefore putting their dreams into existence.

Romans 10:8-9 tells us that; The word is near you, even in your mouth: that is the word of faith, which we preach; That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved”.

I want you to notice something from these words that we are saved by just confessing with our mouth and this shows us the power to create that God has given us. It does not require someone to come and pray for us but we declare with our mouth meaning that we have power to declare and create things.

If we got saved it means at a certain point we declared that Jesus is Lord with our mouth and we can comfortably say that we have received Jesus Christ in our heart because of the words that we declared. If we can declare words with our mouth to lead us into salvation, then it means that power to declare things is also in us which God has already given to all His children.

If we look at the story of Jabez in the bible, we will notice that his name meant “he makes sorrow”. Jabez realized that even though his name was negative, he still had the power to reverse all what was already established for his life to turn into a blessing as he used his mouth to declare and call for goodness from God upon his life (1 Chronicles 4:9-10).

Every difficulty in the life of any person who knows the Lord, irrespective of its severity, can be turned into a blessing by knowing that the power of life and death is indeed in our tongue. We have all been created in God’s image therefore in each one of us there is that power to create things.

All this is accomplished by believing that things are not happening because of us, but because of the Spirit of God that dwells in us for He is the only one that specializes in turning curses into blessings for those that yield to His Spirit.

    If all human beings had taken this message seriously, joined hands in speaking positive things about themselves, their families, relatives, friends, countries, confessing the Lordship of Jesus Christ, worshiping, glorifying, exalting, and praising Him all the time, then good things would indeed be created by our mouths in Jesus Christ name. Then the evil one would not have any place in our lives. Holy Spirit,You are our guide and counselor, I pray in Jesus Christ, that you remain in our minds, spirits, souls and brains, so that we are saying good things all the time.

    The tongue can curse and can also praise God. The choice is ours. It can make one rich and evil. Oh! God.

    And lets try our level best not to be let down by other people who always talk negatively of us but lets strive for righteousness while we believe in God and everything he entrusted to us. I believe God gave wealth to everyone of us alike in form of brains ao that we can use it to prosper and succeed but what hinders us is doubts and discouragements from ourselves and others.

  15. I want to save God, but am sinner befor him. I did try on my on still more I failed. What can do now? Please help me if posible

    1. Cindy says:

      Steven, You are right to say that you have tried to do it on your on but you have failed. It is impossible to do it on your own. I want to tell you that the Bible tells us in Romans 3:23 that “All have sinned and come short of the Glory of God”. That means that all are sinners, actually born that way, in desperate need of the Savior, The Lord Jesus Christ. This is why when Jesus Christ died, we died with Him. When he was buried, we were also buried with Him, meaning all our sins have been buried. When He rose we rose with Him to newness of life. This means that once you have accepted Jesus Christ by faith of what He has done for us, you are no longer the same person you used to be. You are now a new creation. If you have accepted Jesus, stop looking at yourself as a sinner. Develop a prayer habit, start reading the bible. You can start with the new testament. Don’t just read it as a newspaper. As you are reading you will find that the things that are bothering you will start disappearing and something will be happening in your life. Find a church that will help you grow spiritually.
