Verse Of The Day : Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Proverbs 18:21
Thought of The Day : What you say can cause much harm or good.
LISTEN : Beloved, choose what to say wisely. Don’t talk without thinking; rather think before you talk. Watch your tongue before it becomes your doom. The Bible says,
“He that keeps his mouth keeps his life: but he that opens wide his lips shall have destruction.“
My dear, avoid talking carelessly. Careless talkers are being careless with their destinies. They destroy their lives with their own mouths. They fail to realise that, what they say can make or mar them. The tongue is powerful; it can cure and crush depending on how you used it. Friend, your tongue should be a source of blessing to your life and not a source of trouble or curse to yourself and others. Be conscious of the fact that, what you say can cause much harm or good. What you say can create a future for you either good or bad. Therefore, you must mind what you say. Our verse of the day says,
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.“
Beloved, guard your thoughts and you’ll control what you say or do. Death and life are in the power of the tongue. Do you hear that? What does that mean? It means that, you could be entrapped or enthroned by your words; you could be saved or enslaved by your words; you could be cured or crushed by your words; you could be condemned or congratulated by your words. The choice is yours. Be wise!
What Should We Do With This Message?
1. Watch your tongue before it becomes your doom.
2. Determine to use your tongue to bless your life and that of others.
3. Always speak to bless not to curse.
4. Speak faith with your mouth and not fear.
Prayer : Heavenly Father, I realised today that my tongue is capable of bringing death or life. Therefore, I choose to make it an organ of life, in Jesus ’ name, amen!
A Word Of Blessing : Today, I speak on your life, your tongue will speak blessings both to you and others. Henceforth, your tongue shall serve as organ of life and not death, in Jesus ’ name, amen!
Reflection : Watch it, for you could be entrapped or enthroned by your words; you could be saved or enslaved by your words; you could be cured or crushed by your words.
Quote : The tongue is powerful; it can cure and crush depending on how you used it.
