Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life]. [Matt. 12:37.]” Proverbs 18:21 AMP
What we say on daily base out of lips either justify us or makes us prisoners. One of the reason why the enemy attacks us in our hearts and mind through our situations because he wants us to speak contrary to God’s thoughts and plans for our lives.
For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. Then you will call upon Me, and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear and heed you. Then you will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. [Deut. 4:29-30.].” Jeremiah 29:11-13 AMP
But God Almighty expects us to speaks his thoughts and plans over our lives irrespective of our situation. He(God) expects us to remind Him of His thoughts and plans for our lives in prayer.
Now if God’s thoughts and plans are of good and not of evil, then the we should understand that our enemy, who is satan, does not wants us to experience the good. So he uses our words to entrap us through our circumstances.
This year choose life over death as you speak in Jesus Christ mighty name. Ask God Almighty to set a watch over your mouth in Jesus Christ mighty name.
Let’s pray together:
Heavenly Father I thank You for Your word. Set a guard, O Lord, before my mouth; keep watch at the door of my lips. Incline my heart not to submit or consent to any evil thing or to be occupied in deeds of wickedness with men who work iniquity; and let me not eat of their dainties. In Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.
