Death and life are in the power of the tongue,and those who love it will eat its fruits. - Proverbs 18:21
We can compare our tongue to a key. This key will open the gate of death and the door of life. In the same way we can compare our tongue to a tree. Through this tree we can bare good fruits and bitter fruits. So the word of God says Death and life are in the power of the tongue. You all are the children of God, for what purpose you are using your tongue? How the word from your mouth leads you? Is it lead to the path to life or to the path to death? Most of the times, due to the bitterness and due to the anger the words of cursing comes from your mouth. You are cursing yourself. You are cursing your children’s and others. Dear beloved Lord has chosen you to bless who curses you. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;(Mat 5:44) We are the children of God and we have to use our tongue to confess three things that which leads you to the path of life. First we use our tongue to confess our sins. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1Jn 1:9) Every day night when you come to the presence of God you must think about what are the things you done on that day. If you find any things you done was not pleased in the sight of God, confess it and repent. You will see the blessings.
Secondly you must use your tongue to confess word of faith. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara's womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.(Rom 4:19-21) Most of time you are speaking unbelief words and so the promise of God is not fulfilling in your life and some time you are seeing delay in his promise. Speak the word of faith for all and in all times. Then you will see the fulfillment of words that comes out from your mouth. Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.(Heb 13:5-6) Thirdly we must confess Christ and His glorious. And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.(Phil 2:11) I seen many are keeping silent in the time of worshiping. In the time of worshiping we must confess the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We must confess his glorious. Then your tongue abides in the path of life. Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.(Rev 5:12)
Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. – 1 John 4:15
