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).
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.
