If you can grasp an understanding of the power of the words you speak, it may just change the course of your life! Your mouth is a powerful tool, either for God or for the enemy. In other words, you can either speak positive, uplifting, encouraging things into existence in your life or produce negative, gloomy and discouraging things.
Now, I don’t believe any of us want to be a mouthpiece for the devil. But the fact is, the mouth can be used for blessing or destruction, not only in our lives, but also in the lives of others. I’ve seen it in my own life. There was a time when pretty much everything I said was negative.
But the Holy Spirit taught me how to use the creative power of the Word of God. I learned how to speak to the mountains rather than about the mountains in my life. What I mean is, I learned to apply the truth of His Word to my circumstances, and over time, I began to see positive and lasting results.
The mouth is like a pen and your heart is like a tablet. When you say something over and over, it gets on the inside of you and becomes you. It’s not something you have to try to do anymore, it’s who you are.
I’d much rather be a mouthpiece for God than the enemy. I want to speak His truth and enjoy my life.
First Peter 3:10 says, “Let him who wants to enjoy life and see good days…keep his tongue free from evil and his lips from guile.” Do you want to enjoy life? Then use your mouth to speak the things of God into your life!
Prayer Starter: Lord, I know that my mouth is a powerful tool that can be used for You or for the enemy. I submit my mouth to You. Show me how to speak Your truth into my life and into the lives of others.
