Do We Speak The Words Of Life Or Death?
The reason why we have language in this world of various forms, even down to our DNA, is because we are the product of language. For God spoke us into existence: "For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast" (Psalm 33:9 KJV).
We can either be used as a vessel, as a mouthpiece, to speak words that lead unto life, or curses that lead unto death. For we can speak forth the words of life that come from the same authority of power Who spoke the universe into existence, or the words of death that come from the same authority who brought evil into our world, resulting in all the curses and downfalls therein.
We need to come to understand the power and authority we have in our words and how they affect the world. What we say to someone could change the course of their life in one moment. Just as in one moment the serpent(satan) in the garden changed the whole course of human history by deceiving Eve through his words of death.
Our words even have the power to move God Himself, how much more the people? For there is power in prayer.
By our day to day, how many words are we speaking that lead unto life, and how many words are we speaking that curse, that lead unto death? Who are we giving legal rights to reign over us, life or death? The blessing or the curse?
"Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof" (Proverbs 18:21 KJV).
"But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment" (Matthew 12:36 KJV).
