Prov. 15:4 A gentle tongue with its healing power, is a tree of life. How do you respond when someone says something to you that you don't like? Do you lash out with cutting words in response to criticism and correction? Many believers do not recognize the spiritual connection between the words they speak and the direction their life has taken. Show me someone whose life is a mess, full of sickness, lack and turmoil and I guarantee they speak negative, doubt filled words. When we allow our mouth to speak the first thing that pops into our head, without giving thought to the consequences, we are looking for trouble. When we don't place any value on the words we speak, thinking that there is no truth to their negative or positive effect in our lives, we have played right into Satan's hands. Our words give the enemy access to reek havoc, steal, kill, and destroy or our words give God access to bless, protect, provide, and keep us. When faced with negative situations, be it sickness, disease, lack, danger and so forth, our tongue and the words we speak, have the power to heal, deliver, and set us free from anything the Devil would endeavor to place on us. If things don't seem to be going right for you check up on what you've been saying. Make the determination in this new year to speak words of healing, peace, provision, protection, and life. Speak God's Words and what He says about your situation and watch that thing turn around.
