How to use your tongue to build!
Posted on: October 18, 2016
The powerful tongue can change your life. We need to speak up the God’s words about what we would like to see happen in our lives and not speak about the situation staring in our faces.
“Death and Life are in the power of the tongue.’ (Proverbs 18.21)
Your tongue is a creative Force!
After receiving Christ into my heart Proverbs 18.21 became a foundational verse in my life.
You are made in the image of God.
God spoke and it was done. ( Genesis 1:1-4). Speaking and doing is one thing for God.
He speaks it is done. He commands and it stands fast.
The Bible says God has created us in His image. (Genesis 1:27). Therefore, when we speak , we are creating.
What are you speaking.
The very first thing the Spirit of God wants to do with us is changing our speech.
Have you allowed Him to?
What words are you speaking daily – over your life, your marriage, your children, your finances?
Do you hear yourself saying things like ‘I can never run a business’ or ‘my child is too shy’ or ‘he\she is very naughty’?

What the bible says we should speak.
The Bible says in Romans 4.17b says “call those things that are not, as though they were”.
Gods word is asking us to speak words that we would like to see happen in our lives and not speak about the situation staring in our faces.
Genesis 1.1-3 God saw chaos and darkness and said ‘Let there be light” and there was light.
When you see chaos what do you speak?

Gods word is spirit and Life.
I urge you to start today-declare Gods word over your situation not what you are seeing.
Jesus says in John 6:63 ‘ My words are spirit and they are life’.
When things are not going your way speak out the promises of God.
When I see sickness I speak out “By the stripes of Jesus I am healed’ (Isaiah 53:5)
When my emotions are all mixed up I say ‘My God has not given me the spirit of fear, but power, love and a sound mind”
What is staring in your face today?
Speak out what the Word of God says about your situation Now.
Roar with me:
‘My child is blessed and highly favoured of God and man’ (Luke2.52)
‘Great is the peace of my child for he\she is taught of God’ (Isa 54.13)
‘My child is the righteousness of God in Christ and therefore he\she is as bold as a lion’ (Prov28.1)
Pray in agreement with me:
Abba Father, I surrender my tongue to You today and ask by the power of the Holy Spirit that You would help me to
think and speak only that which is good, necessary, pure, noble and lovely in Jesus Name.
(Acts1.8, Phil 4.8)
What verses from scripture do you speak over your child?
Do you need help regarding what scriptures to speak over your situation?
Are you struggling with your marriage, finances, children- shoot me an email and I will send you promises and confessions
to declare over your life pertaining to your situation.
