Miracle in Your Mouth

  1. Hayden 7-11-19


Many years ago, before coming into the ministry, I was listening to a particular preacher speak on the power that was in the tongue. His foundational Scripture was Proverbs 18:21 that says, “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” I was especially intrigued when he uttered the phrase, “There is a miracle in your mouth.” Now I am not a “name it and claim it” kind of person, but if we believe in God’s Word and His instructions regarding the things we say, we must admit that there is power in the kind of language we choose to use. I believe in miracles and I believe it God’s power. And there seems to be a correlation between what we say and whether we see God move in our life or not.

As well as the verse in Proverbs, we can how important our speech is according to these Scriptures:

·         Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit; (1 Peter 3:10),

·         Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear (Ephesians 4:29),

·         I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned (Matthew 12:36-37),

·         Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips! (Psalm 141:3),

·         But no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison (James 3:8), and

·         If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless (James 1:26).


These are but only a few of the many references to the importance of ordering our speech to line up with what God’s Word says. When the 12 spies returned from scoping out the Promised Land that was to be their home, only Joshua and Caleb spoke positively about being well able to take the land. The other 10 spoke negatively about how they were too weak, too small, and too incapable of driving out the current inhabitants that stood in their way. Because of their words, those 10 never entered the Holy Lands. But Joshua and Caleb did. That day, there was power in their words and they were rewarded for ordering their speech to line up with the promises of God. We must do the same.

Be blessed even more and have a wonderful week!!
