Proverbs 18:20, 21 A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue and they that love it (indulge in; delight in; inclined in) shall eat the fruit thereof.
God wants us filled up and satisfied with our life. Many have witnessed the testimonies of others and yet have not personally experienced any real significant increase or satisfaction. Do not lose your expectancy. The God who gives the increase is still the God of the universe and He is your God and my God. We have to realize, though, the power of our words. Proverbs 12:14 says A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth.
Our words are very powerful in influencing our life. They either work for us or against us. They either bring life or death. Our words activate spiritual laws, Romans 8:2 For the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
Proverbs 10:20 Tongue of the just is as choice silver. Just like in the economic system, money is the medium of exchange for transactions to take place, in the spiritual system words are the medium of exchange for spiritual transactions. Let words work for you like money or silver – invest them. Treasure words like silver – guard them. Use them like money or silver as the medium of exchange – make transactions.
Our words can deliver us and get us out of trouble. Proverbs 12:6 Mouth of the upright shall deliver them. Proverbs 12:13 The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips but the just shall come out of trouble.
Your Pastor or minister may speak many good things over you in church and that is good. We must realize, though, that no amount of what is spoken over you in God’s house (church) can overcome what is spoken by you in your house.
