Proverbs 18:21 'Death and life are in the power of the tongue'.
Whenever we say something, it has either a positive or negative effect, never are the words we say neutral; you could compare it to numbers as they too are either positive or negative. So, as Christians we should be serving God in everything we do including everything we say. The words we speak should always be words of life and words that will advance God's kingdom. Words of Life could be used in spiritual warfare, encouraging one another, confessing spiritual truths and many other things, that is why, it is so important we speak with positive words. Jesus is the best example when looking at the power of the tongue; he said to the blind, see, to the lame he said walk, to Lazarus he said ' Lazarus come out'. And he rose from the dead. These are just few of the many examples where Jesus spoke words of life. When Jesus spoke, it happened, but also, let us remember that because we are in Jesus and him in us, when we speak a prophetic word given by God or words of life, it also happens.
Isaiah 55:11 'so is my word that goes out from my mouth: it will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.'
How amazing is that? If God says something, it is fulfilled no matter how distant it seems.
See, Satan along the way will cast doubt and say is this really what God said but you have to ignore what the enemy is saying and instead remember that whatever God says goes!
Thank you for this rich and beneficial message. It engages and imparts potent truths.
I do agree that there are seasons when we need to ignore Satan, but also, there are seasons when we are to do as our Lord Christ did in Matthew 4:10. Tell Satan what is written in the Word of GOD.
