Power of the Tongue

I think in our daily lives when life is just being life or when it is hurried or we are angered or down, sometimes it can be easy to forget the power in the words that we choose to use.  It is so, so important to remember the power of the spoken word. We can choose negative words which can harm us or others or words that can bless.  Father, help me to remember your words which are life...

The Power of the Tongue

With His words, Abba caused the creation of heaven and earth…
Gen. 1:3
And Elohiem said let there be…
And there was…
Abba’s very words have power to create life.

The power of life and death, blessings and curses exists in the WORD, both written and spoken.
Pro 18:21  Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Jos 8:34  And afterward he read all the words of the law, the blessings and cursings, according to all that is written in the book of the law.

We are instructed to Choose Life…we do have a choice.  Both have been set before us…life or death, blessings or curses.
Deu 30:19  I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
Pro 15:4  A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.

We can become bound because of the words from our own mouths…
Pro 6:2  Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.

Or set free from the path of wrath and folly.
Pro 15:1  A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
Pro 15:2  The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.

Our Words are Health to the Bones or Affliction to the Soul
Pro 16:24  Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
Pro 26:28  A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.

They are Either Wise or foolish
Ecc 10:12  The words of a wise man's mouth are gracious; but the lips of a fool will swallow up himself.

The Promise in Abba’s WORD to Those Who Mind Their Conversation
Psa 50:23  Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.

My Prayer
Psa 19:14  Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Yahuah, my strength, and my redeemer.
Job 27:4  My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit.
Psa 145:21  My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.
Psa 35:28  And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.
Job 6:24  Teach me, and I will hold my tongue: and cause me to understand wherein I have erred.

Psa 34:13  Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
1Pe 3:10  For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
1Pe 3:11  Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.

Please hear my prayer today Abba and help me to remember the power that is in every idle word I speak and that every word is recorded.  One day when I stand before you let it be found that I have applied wisdom and my words have produce life, been wise, taught truth, and been gentle.  Abba hear me today and let me be found pleasing before you.
Thank you that you hear me.  Amien

Hope you all have a blessed day of preparation and a Shabbat filled with peace and good fellowship.
