The tongue is a dangerous weapon

Recommended Posts

This past weekend me and all the ladies that went to the woman's conference once again realised how important it is to keep yourself from talking bad stuff over our own lifes as well as others. In total there was about 8 people who ministered to us. From pastors to prophets. All of them had different themes they preached on but all of them said in their sermons how important it is to speak life over ourselves and others!!

We realised that this was really coming from God, 'cause without it being discussed beforehand all of them said some time or another something about the power of the tongue.

I've seen this in my own life lately as well. Even though I'm going through difficult times I keep speaking positive words over my life and almost immediately I'll see a change coming!!! I don't worry about negative stuff happening in my life, because I know we serve an awesome God!!!! Nothing is impossible for Him - NOTHING happy dance Your whole life there will be struggles but the way you handle them and your attitude and words you speak will determine the outcome. When we praise God in the storm, we declare the Greatness of God and His power! God loves it when we put our trust in Him. He is an awesome God and wants to teach us to fully TRUST HIM.

I pray that God would put a guard before my tongue and that I would speak life no matter what the situation is. I will try my best not to utter any negative words about my situations and other people. We will succeed 'cause we've got God on our side!! happy dance

Thank you Lord!

Thanks for sharing Sirianta

Its definitely a reminder to me. I too believe we need to be cautious of the words we speak, in the last few months I've really corrected and watched what has come out of my mouth. The word does say "life and death is in the power of the tongue"
