How Do the Words I Speak Affect My Healing?
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life] (Proverbs 18:21).
There is a Bible secret about words. Words are spiritual and they carry power. Your tongue is the deciding factor in your life. No matter how fierce the storm or how serious the problem, your tongue will turn it. Your confession will control your ship in the storm.
The words spoken from your mouth, whether good or evil, a blessing or a curse, will manifest themselves in your life. Most of us have been trained since birth to speak negative words. Unconsciously, in your everyday conversation, you probably use words of death, sickness, fear, doubt and unbelief: "That scared me to death." "I laughed until I thought I would die." "I’m just dying to go." "That makes me sick." "I’m sick and tired of this mess."
You say these things without even realizing it. When you do, you begin a chain reaction of negative forces in your life. So how do you make a change? Get the Word of God established on the inside of you. When the Word is in your heart in abundance, it will come out of your mouth. Your tongue is only an instrument. Your heart is where the key lies. Whatever is in your heart is what will come out of your mouth. You can begin today setting a new standard for your healing by changing the words that come out of your mouth.
