What's In Your Mouth?

Rm. 10:8 Message Bible The Word that saves is right here, as near as the tongue in your mouth, as close as the heart in your chest. Do we, as believers, truly recognize the power in our words? I don't think so. If we did, I believe there are a lot of things we would not speak out of our mouths. If the "power to save" is within our words, why do we allow ourselves to speak things that go contrary to the Word? Many times we ignorantly grab on to statements or phrases that declare negative or even destructive words over our lives. Things like, "You're killing me!", "That scared me to death!" "I'm sick and tired of that!" and so forth. Then we wonder why negative things seem to happen. We need to be declaring the "word that saves." You and I need to aline our words with the Word of God, which is life giving and powerful to deliver, heal, provide, and bring forth His plans for our lives.
