Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
Words are the language of the heart without restriction. We say a lot ot things, day in and day out but are we aware of the consequences of what we say. The written word is one thing but the utterances of our mouth is quite another.
This world that we live is was brought about by the “Word of God”, that ultimate being who spoke everything into existence whether one believes that or not, for me that is Truth. Even the scientists are beginning to see the truth of a Higher Intelligence that had to be behind this world that we live in.
I do not think we, all of us, realize just how powerful the spoken word is. I recently had a cancerous growth on my arm which began to grow larger and larger to about the size of a lemon. One morning as I was reading the scriptures, I read in Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. I realized that this was God speaking but I had the impression that so are our words that proceed out of our mouth. I then understood that I had the ability to use my voice against this cancerous tumor and Jesus/Yeshua had confirmed that in Mark 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain (cancer), Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he says shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he says. I decided to take that to the bank and cash it. I spoke to the tumor as did others with me and I watched it shrink and dry up. I have doctors’ confirmation. Had the tumor broken and entered my bloodstream, I would have lasted maybe a week and would be gone from this world. But, by the word of our testimony we shall prevail.
Also, this goes for so many idle words that we speak, they come from the heart and have the ability to hurt or heal both ourselves and others, we must be careful what we speak.
