I am usually a really quiet person until I get going. And sometimes that can work to my detriment.
Why? Well 50% of the purpose of our mouth is speaking. There are those who speak too much, there are those who speak too little. Then there are those who don’t speak at all.
I think all of these are wrong.
Proverbs 18:21 says that
Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit.
We often focus on the death and life part of this scripture. But what we also need to realize is that death and life depends on the power of the tongue. i.e. it depends on how much power we exert by our tongue.
Saying nothing at all can be just as damaging as saying too much. Why? If you continually speak…the enemy can and will sieve out all of the negative things that you say and act on them to destroy you. If you don’t say anything, you give the enemy a tremendous advantage to continue to attack you.
On the same wise if you speak too much, angels who are sent forth as ministering spirits to act on your word (Heb 1:14), will sieve out those things that you are asking God for and those positives that you are declaring. If you don’t speak at all, they have no word to act on.
What’s coming out of your mouth?
Are you using it just to put stuff in? That’s only 50% of what it’s for.
I charge you to begin to use it for the other 50%.
Starting today…begin to use your mouth to change your situation. If you don’t speak, trust me! Someone else is speaking for you. So don’t stay quiet. And if you are a talkative person, make sure that in all of your talking you are declaring things that will change your situation.
Declaration Time (Say out Loud time):
Today is a good day for me. God is working all things together for my good because He loves me. God loves me. Good news is coming to me. In Jesus Name!
