Hey Girls! Have you ever thought about the POWer of our words? There are so many verses about taming your tongue. Just to name a few:
- By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. – Hebrew 11:3 – By God’s mouth, His words created the earth. Shows how much power is in our tongue!
- Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit. – Proverbs 18:21 – You can speak death over someone, or life over someone with your mouth! Choose to Speak Life! If you take care of your mouth, watch what you say, you will benefit from what you speak.
- Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. – Matthew 12:34 – If you are focusing on the right things (God) and spending intimate time with Him then you will automatically speak good things. Whatever is in your heart, you will speak. If you are grateful, you will speak thankful things, if you are angry, whatever you say will be angry.
- And seeing a fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it, “Let no fruit grow on you ever again.” Immediately the fig tree withered away. – Matthew 21:19 – Jesus saw a fig tree (which wasn’t in season for figs according to Mark 11:13), and cursed it because it had no fruit? Why did He do that? That’s a question & answer for next time! 🙂
This week I suggest you study James 3, it talks about bridling your tongue. When you talk to God, you can say anything you want, the Devil will not use it against you because you are with God. But make sure you guard your mouth. This is a struggle for me, and that’s why I wanted to share it with you.
Read James 3, it is only 18 verses, but will really help you understand what we just talked about.
