Death or Life
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit (Proverbs 18:21)
The most powerful force in your life today are your words. They literally have the power of life and death!
Words are the creative ability of God. He created the worlds with words. He upholds all things by the power of His Word. Created in His image, you have an ability to create in your life with words.
Jesus said that we will give account for every word that comes out of our mouth. Let me ask you a question. What would happen if what you said today suddenly came into being in an instant? Would you want what you’ve been speaking to happen?
You’re either speaking life or death. Speaking death means that you’re allowing your mouth to agree with the circumstances around you or the doubts that come into your mind today. And words are creative. When you speak doubt and unbelief, you allow the enemy the opportunity to dominate.
On the other hand speaking life means that you’re allowing your mouth to agree with the Word of God. You’re choosing to call those things that be not as though they were. Speaking life means you speak the end result before you see it. You confess that you believe you’re healed while the pain is still in your body. You acknowledge that your needs are met while lack surrounds you. You say that you’re overcoming by the blood of the lamb and the word of your testimony while the circumstances appear to be crushing you.
God spoke to the Israelites and told them to choose this day whom they would serve, life or death, blessing or cursing. The Father is likewise challenging you today to choose life by choosing to speak the Word of God right in the face of opposing circumstances. If you will do this, you’ll find the strength of God rising up within you. You will be able to persevere and overcome because God watches over His Word to perform it.
