The power of the words that we speak
We are in the last half of the year 2020 and we are at the beginning of a decade and I want to believe that we must have heard teachings about the words we speak. But for many years now I have come to realize that there is power in the words we speak.
I remember years back, God told me that I have to learn not to be haste with my speech. He gave me the same words He gave to Jeremiah.
Words have creative power. We read this in Hebrews 11:3 that “By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.”
God Formed the DNA of the world
It is good to understand that the DNA of the world is made up of God’s spoken word. He established a pattern for us to follow. We are supposed to learn how to speak faith filled words since we are also created in His likeness. We must allow God’s creative power to flow from you as you realize the spiritual force through your tongue.
There is a spiritual force that is released through our tongues. Thus, James says; “take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. 5 Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. 6 The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.”
There is power the words we speak. Words spoken our lives have power to shape our destinies. You are where you are today, you are where you are today, you are going through what you are going through today because there are words that are shaping your destiny. To some, it is because of negative words.
Where Our Rescue Comes From
The bible says in provers 12:6 The words of the wicked lie in wait for blood, but the speech of the upright rescues them. That means I can rescue somebody through my words and the wicked can destroy someone through their words.
That’s why the bible says in Isaiah 42:22 But this is a people plundered and looted, all of them trapped in pits or hidden away in prisons. They have become plunder, with no one to rescue them. That means if we there’s someone to release a word, we can have restoration.
This is what causes God to gives us altars and makes us priests upon them because even the devil has his priesthood and the works of the evil priesthood is to curse people, blocking them from their destinies.
Even the most feared witches and sorcerers don’t walk brandishing guns or machetes. They use mere words and they destroy businesses, families, destinies! Not because they use anything else. It is because they erect altars and are able to connect with demonic powers and release words of destruction.
Christians ought to use the same strategy by Raising an altar for our God, sanctifying ourselves and making declarations and changing destinies.
Learn to control your tongue
Proverbs 13: 3 Those who control their tongue will have a long life; opening your mouth can ruin everything. Note that there is a spiritual atmosphere in your life and every word that you speak it can be activated by that atmosphere. Negative or positive. Therefore, We have to guard our lips and our lives, especially when in a season of prayers and fasting.
Sometimes I wonder why some people pray and afterwards the continue speaking negative words. A lot of negativity in their tongues. The power confirms the power in our words in proverbs 18:21 that, the tongue has the power of life and death and those who love it will eat its fruit. If you learn to use your tongue wisely, you can shape your own world.
Many speak ill against their work, their children and other arears of their lives and it has greatly influenced their lives. Listening to them you are able to realize a of negative talks. Highlighting problems. People often like speaking about the problems they are going through. They talk around their fears. Murmuring.
They mourn constantly about everything. This does not help. They complain about everything from bad economy to the least of all needs. Truth is you have power in your tongue, over death and life over every situation.
Words Are Destructive
People might fear so many other weapons but words have more power than any other weapons used all around the world. A bullet only targets one person but ill-spoken words can destroy an entire family. Words can scatter destinies and cause a lot of suffering for many years.
If words had no power, God could not have asked us to refute every tongue that rises to accuse us, as written in Isaiah 54:17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord.
Why did God say there’s no weapon? When the Bible talks about weapons, it does not refer to guns or machetes. It is referring to words spoken against us.
David was a fighter but looking into his life, one of his greatest cries he had was that, the Lord would contend against those who rose against him with their tongues.
We read this in Psalms 57: 3:5 4 My soul is among lions: and I lie even among them that are set on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.
Destinies can be destroyed by the power that is in the tongues of men.
God told Moses in the book of Numbers 6:22
22 The Lord said to Moses, 23 “Tell Aaron and his sons, ‘This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them: 24 “‘“The Lord bless you and keep you25 the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you;
26 the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”’
27 “So they will put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.
This powerful. This means that God blesses His people through the spoken word. I am here today to proclaim a blessing upon your life. It is possible that no one has ever spoken good things upon your life. It is possible that right now there are people holding hands to speak evil against you. Maybe you come from a family where words have brought darkness in your life.
In the book of Genesis, we learn that the Holy Spirit was waiting on God’s command! He was just hovering upon the surface of the earth, until God said, “LET THERE BE”
The Story Of Barack
That is why the power of God can be amongst us but God is keen to follow on His Word so that He can fulfil it. That is why the Gospel is all about making declarations. When we declare a thing, God follows on His word to fulfil it, just like the Bible says that, when the disciples went, the Lord was with them and He confirmed every word that they spoke.
This is why the word of the Lord follows a certain line. That when we speak healing it will happen. So, we require a lot of revelation and also understanding what God is doing. In this manner, we shall be able to release declarations that are able to bring change in that area.
In Numbers 22, Barack sought to send a curse upon the Israelites because they were too powerful for him so that he could defeat them and drive them out of the country.
They weaken your talent, ministry, business and even your career. Even if you had a seed of greatness, you find that words spoken against you have brought weakness upon you, and you find you can do very little with your life.
There are things in this life that we are supposed to ask God to evade them from our lives. Others we are supposed to speak against them but other we are supposed to rebuke. Mark 11:23…if anyone says to this mountain….I believe Jesus was referring to heavy issues buried in people’s lives.
This means that our words can move mountains or heavy issues. That’s why the wisdom of making declarations is very important in the lives of a believer.
Learn to speak upon your life
May the Lord help us to know how to speak upon mountains in our lives. Ephesians 4:29 teaches us on how we should be careful about how we speak. It is good to speak words that build each other.
It is good to stand and bless fellow men. The devil raises wicked people who can speak evil upon people’s lives. Sometimes because of our ignorance, we may speak evil words against our own lives. We need to renounce such words.
Saying you can’t please take care of what you say. The ladder that guides your life is your tongue. Take care of your tongue. Even when going through a hard time, take care of what you speak concerning your life, business, children, your gifts and ministry. Learn to speak positively about such.
Ezekiel And The Dry Bones
In Ezekiel 37:4 God told Ezekiel to prophesy upon the dry bones. I speak life and prophesy upon visions and activate your promises and every prophetic word.
There are people who carry a vision and big dreams. I connect your dream and vision with the life of God. I connect your career and ministry. Your business and family is directly connected with the life of God.
God is able to open the graves and raise dry bones to a mighty army.
Those who had big dreams to serve the Lord, your dream is coming to life. You may have done much applications till you gave up but your time is coming. I declare that in the next ten years, God will visit you.
When God heard the cry of the Israelites because of the afflictions of the Medianites, He sent them a deliverer to send them victory.
If there are words you spoke against your family, your marriage and in your life, tell God that you repent, because words have got creative power. Jesus said that, the words I speak to you they are life and they are spirit. That’s why there is no distance between souls. The presence of God is able to reach everyone.
Your present cannot dictate your future. Why should we give up? God is able to change every situation.
You Need Deliverance
Anyone who wants his tongue to be a blessing vessel should learn to do so often. You receive what you give in a good measure. You harvest what you sore. If you sore curses, you will reap curses. Those who curse will reap a curse.
The moment you push others down, you are also going to go down, but when I desire to lift other people I am also going up. Are you going to push people down or are you going to push them up?
I ask servants of God all over the world, please learn to bless. The altar is not a place to declare a curse. Even if you lose members, please don’t speak curses upon them, bless them instead. The altar is a point of a blessing.
I made a vow not to destroy people’s lives with my tongue. That’s is not my calling neither is it my assignment. My assignment is to bless. God appointed Aaron and his family to be standing before the congregation and bless them. If we turn altars as a cursing point, even the pastor won’t be strong, because curses will fall upon them as oil.
We have to cleanse out tongues so that when we speak a word, God follows it to fulfill it. May we be people who god can respect their words. May God set you free from every spoken against you.
Just pray for your tongue because in it, there is life and death! Ask God to forgive you for every unwholesome talk that has come from your mouth. May God cleanse our tongues so that we can serve God.
We have to know how to use our tongues. We have to know when to speak and when to be silent. May God deliver us from unwholesome talks.
I took notes from teachings done by Apostle John Kimani William, also available on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irTOqtJg57A&t=8904s
