(Who And) What Are You Slaying (I Mean Saying) With Your Words?

Proverbs 18:21 tells us that death and life are in the power of the tongue.

Obviously, our mouths don't know how to speak right, life-giving things on their own. They require training. Proverbs 16:23 tells us that, if we are wise, we will "teach" our mouth and the only place we're going to find the truth to teach it is in God's Word (the Holy Bible).

God's Word in our mouths is the most powerful weapon that we have against the accuser. In fact, Hebrews 4:12 tells us that God's Word is stronger than any two-edged sword. The beauty is, that sword of truth can be used in any battle that we are engaged in at any time...even when the battle is within ourselves.

Isaiah 49:2 tells us, "He made my mouth like a sharp sword..."
We are to speak God's Word...over our life situations, over our families, and over ourselves!

But, keep in mind, words can be used on the wrong side of the battle line, too. Proverbs 12:18 says, "There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health."

What words are you saying with your mouth? Are you speaking life into the life situations that you face each day? Are you speaking health and healing into your family? Into yourself?

If not, begin to turn the situation around today by filling up on God's Word. Open it up, read it, and ask the Lord to speak to you through its pages. Then, purposefully, begin teaching your mouth to speak right words, declaring the goodness of God at every turn.

Until next time...
