Proverbs 18: 21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue,and those who love it will eat its fruit.
Words have power and produces what we speak? What’s coming out of your mouth? What are you speaking? Life or death over yourself, situation, family, finances, future, career, circumstances, etc?
Our words! What are they? Whatever they are, we WILL eat the fruit of them, therefore, be very careful what you allow to come out of your mouth.
Are you speaking victory or defeat? Think about it!
King Solomon who was the wisest man among men reminds us on today to be careful of what we let come out of out mouth because what we speak produces life in our lives.
Words can start a fire in our lives or put the fire out. What are your words doing? Starting a fire within you or putting out the fire that is already in you?
Proverbs 12:14 By fruitful speech a man will be filled with good things, and the work of a man's hands will reward him.
Proverbs 10:31 says, “The mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom.”
Proverbs 15:7 says, “The lips of the wise spread knowledge.”
What comes out of a righteous man? Wisdom. What comes out of a wise man? Knowledge. These two things ought to be coming out of our mouth all the time.
The tongue can be used to uplift and encourage or to tear down and discourage.
What are we saying about ourselves and what are we saying and speaking to others?

If we need help taming our tongues we can go to God who is able to help us.
Proverbs 16:1 says, “To a man belongs the plans of the heart, but from the Lord comes the reply of the tongue.” Our tongues can be placed under God’s control. Oh what a relief this is! Daily we can surrender our tongue to Him so that He may give us words of life as our speech.
We can start giving our tongues to God by saying “Lord, here is my tongue, let it speak wholesome words of wisdom that lifts up and not tear down”.
Let today be the day that we start speaking words that leads others to Christ. Words of life, hope, power, victory and not defeat.
Oh God help us to yield our tongues to you so that we may speak only those words that you would have us to speak. We need your help and we can not do it without you Lord.
Lord teach us your way! Psalm 86:11 Teach me your way, LORD, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.
What words are coming out of our mouth?
Lord, I want to be more like you! Make me a vessel you can use.
It is out of the abundance of the heart that the mouth speaks!
Remember this: The storehouse of the tongue is the heart!
