Most Christian’s problems come because they can’t control their tongue. Controlling our emotions has a lot to do with what comes out of our mouth, because you will have what you say. If you keep telling yourself and others “you can’t seem to do anything right” then everything you do just seems to be wrong. If you keep telling yourself “I will never be able to do this” then you won’t ever do it. If you keep telling yourself “I am sick and tired of this that and the other” you can fill in the blanks, then you will always operate in a state of being sick and tired. Saints aren’t you tired of that! It is truly time to live above and not beneath! It is time to be the head and not the tail, and it starts with what you say.
Thus, as you speak- your mind and body receives it and will make every attempt to operate through your words. On the other hand, if you begin to speak life; if you begin to tell yourself “I can do,” if you begin to tell yourself “I can get that degree,” or “I can be what God is encouraging me to be; “I will get that job… my kids will grow up to be productive in the community…they will grow up to declare the works of the Lord” then the possibilities are endless and the sky is the limit.
King Solomon declared “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof (Pro 18:21)”. Thus, it behooves all of us to control our tongue so we might introduce life into our daily walk with Christ because it’s easy to assume that everyone who claims to be a Christian is doing that. However, we know that many speak destructive things into their lives and the lives of others everyday without giving it a second thought.
