Your words have intrinsic power — a force capable of building you up or breaking you down. The devil has no ability to create, but he does know how to produce. He can produce the results he wants by getting you to use your own words to bring crisis into your life.
Think about how you are using your words.
Job 22:28 — You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways.
Matthew 21:18-22– Now in the morning, as He returned to the city, He was hungry. And seeing a fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it, “Let no fruit grow on you ever again.” Immediately the fig tree withered away. And when the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, “How did the fig tree wither away so soon?” So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”
Mark 11:23 — For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
Proverbs 18:21 — Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.
1 Peter 3:9 –Not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing.
