Proverbs 18:21King James Version (KJV)
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
In a life-cycle, many of us wonder why there may be a constant wheel of destruction pedaling around our existence. Before you jump off of the hamster wheel or wave the white flag, I must pose a question. Have you brought life to the negativity by sharing it to everyone who will hear, or have you taken a negative situation and brought Gods word to the equation propelling life in front of the circumstance?
It’s easy to be speak negativity, but it takes strength and discipline to keep quiet and only say the things you want to prosper. God has given each and every one of us the ability to bring life and death into our world through our mouths. Meaning, what we say matters!
It’s not easy, but controlling what comes out of your mouth will literally change your life. When something negative accords, look at the situation ask God what you should do. After that, we really have no need of mentioning the situation again unless we are seeking outside of God for an answer. If we are looking to people, and not solely on God, then you have the answer to why your life is in shambles. Council is appropriate, when it’s what God wants you to do, but most times we seek and value others opinion over Gods word. Make the pledge today to speak positivity and I guarantee it will change the path of your life forever. Peace.
