I SPEAK LIFE AND HEALTH!
Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.
Every day I hear everything from desperate panic to foolishness. I've had to carefully guard what I hear and read because the noise is getting louder and louder.
Recently I shared a series of messages (here) about worship. Worship is everything that you do to honor God. EVERYTHING. Even how we deal with this Covid - 19 is an act of worship.
King Solomon, who wrote this Proverb, is all of his God-given wisdom, says something so profound, most people miss it. It isn't "what you say is what you get." It's, "you will speak what you love."
If you love life - you will speak like - you will have life.
If you love death - you will speak death - you will get death.
If you love fear - if you love hope - if you love foolishness - If you love joy, you get the picture.
Jesus said that from the abundance of our hearts, our mouths speak.
James said that our tongue is the most unruly member of our body.
Paul said that we must confess with our mouths that Jesus Christ is Lord.
Today choose to speak life in the face of this pandemic.
I SPEAK LIFE, AND I SPEAK HEALTH OVER MY FAMILY.
I SPEAK LIFE, AND I SPEAK HEALTH OVER MY CHURCH FAMILY.
I SPEAK LIFE, AND I SPEAK HEALTH OVER MY COMMUNITY.
Tomorrow, the joy of the Lord is my strength.
PRAY: Dear Jesus, let Your words come out of my mouth. Speak life into me and let me share Your good news with others.
