Life Found On Your Lips – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional March 19th

(The Words You Speak Determine Your Life)

TO THE BIBLE: Proverbs 18:21 NIV
“The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”

Sean’s mother took him, weak and deathly ill, to a church meeting. As the pastor concluded the service after ministering to several people, she cried out to get his attention.

Crying profusely, she placed Sean, who lay helplessly on the platform. Despite the ushers’ attempts to calm her, she was determined to get the pastor’s attention.

When the Pastor turned in her direction, he sternly asked, “What’s the matter?” She explained, “My son is dying,” but the Pastor needed to correct her confession.

Firmly, he told her, “You’re saying the wrong things. If you say he’s dying, that’s what you’re going to get!”

He then asked, “What exactly do you want? Do you want him to live or die?” Despite the tough approach, she replied, “I want him to live.”

The Pastor instructed her to put her hand on him, call his name, and declare that he would live and not die. As she obeyed and spoke those words, something miraculous happened.

Within a few seconds, Sean, who had been weak and sickly, unable to stand, jumped up excitedly; his body had received strength, and they experienced a miracle. Hallelujah!

However, Sean could have succumbed to death if someone hadn’t taught his mother what to do and say. She had to speak the right words because death and life are in the power of the tongue.

When sickness attacks your body, it’s death attacking; you must respond by declaring, “No; in the Name of Jesus, I refuse to be sick!”

Speak life to your body, for the Gospel we have received is a gospel of life; life has come to us.

If, for example, a Christian is diagnosed with a heart condition, by words, that heart can be mended, or he or she can even have a new heart. Words are crucial in the Kingdom of God. With your words, you can consistently chart your course to victory. Hallelujah!
