Speak life.

Speak life.

"Let him refrain his tongue from evil." 1Pe 3:10 NKJV

The Bible says, "He who would love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips from speaking deceit. Let him turn away from evil and do good" (vv. 10-11 NKJV).  Note the words "let him turn away." That doesn't mean you should be rude or insensitive, but be solution focused rather than problem focused. 

Your mouth is a powerful tool that can help or harm. If you can grasp an understanding of the power of the words you speak, it can change the course of your life. You can either speak positive, uplifting, encouraging things into existence in your life, or words that produce negative, discouraging things (See Pr 18:21).  None of us want to be a mouthpiece for the devil. But the truth is, the mouth can be used for blessing or destruction, not only in our own lives but also in the lives of others. 

Your mouth is like a pen, and your heart is like a tablet. When you say something over and over, it gets on the inside of you and becomes you. It's not something you have to try to do anymore; it's who you are. Be a mouthpiece for God. 

  • "The Lord God has given Me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary" (Isa 50:4 NKJV). 

  • "How forceful are right words!" (Job 6:25 NKJV). 

  • "The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom" (Ps 37:30 NKJV). 

  • "Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers" (Eph 4:29 NKJV). 

Today, speak life!
