Apostles Sterling, Sr. & Deborah Winston
What you say out of your mouth determines what you believe.
The tongue is a creative power. The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences. (Proverbs 18:21 NLT). The wise speak thoughtfully because they know what they speak has consequences. You can speak your future or your funeral.
A tree is identified by its fruit. If a tree is good, its fruit will be good. If a tree is bad, its fruit will be bad. (Matthew 12:33 NLT). The tongue is the spiritual muscle that pushes the force of faith into action.
Whatever is in your heart determines what you say. People can tame all kinds of animals, birds, reptiles, and fish,but no one can tame the tongue. It is restless and evil, full of deadly poison.Sometimes it praises our Lord and Father, and sometimes it curses those who have been made in the image of God. (James 3:7-9 NLT).
Bitter and sweet cannot come from the same fountain. The tongue is a little thing that dispenses both blessings and curses. Our words contain power. Words can fulfill your destiny and shape your purpose.
The tongue is a power container. God has ordained the function of the tongue.
1. The gauge- a spiritual meter, it set the gauge of our maturity.
2. A guide- it starts things in motion. If we can control our tongue we can guide our lives.
3. To gird- the tongue is like a huge fire it can ruin or bless our lives.
4. It guards- it can reveal the wisdom we harbor inside, a good tongue protects our integrity.
Watch what you say. What’s in your mouth?
1. Words transmit power. Your words can cause a good harvest or bad harvest.
2. Our words reveal our character. For as he thinks within himself, so he is (Proverbs 23:7NLT). The wise is known for their understanding and pleasant words persuade.
3. Words determine our reward or our judgment. By words we are acquitted or condemned (Matthew 12:37 NLT).
4. Words produce fruit; it produces the seed after itself. What you say is what you have.
God designed and ordained us to accomplish things by the wise use of our words.
