…If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body…the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature… – James 3:2-6
Many people will readily pay huge sums of money to get solutions to their problems, unaware that the solution is just below their nose; it’s in their mouth. If you can get a grip on the words that come out of your mouth, you can chart your course for a victorious life in Christ Jesus.
If you’re faced with a challenge that seems insurmountable, the words of Jesus in Mark 11:23 is the solution you need. It says, “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” Recall how the tongue is described in our opening text; it’s called a fire. That means with your faith-filled words, you burn up every anomaly—everything in your life and in your future that isn’t consistent with the perfect will of God.
A Christian whose life is overwhelmed with lack, for example, is certainly having a harvest of his negative confessions. However, he can change the tide by beginning to speak as the seed of Abraham, declaring his prosperity and abundance in Christ.
Your words rule your life. Proverbs 18:20 says, “A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.” It couldn’t get any clearer than this! The responsibility is yours to create your own victorious, prosperous, and exciting life, from glory to glory by speaking creative words of faith.

The Word of faith is in my heart and in my mouth today; and as I speak it forth, mountains are moved, hills are leveled, and the crooked paths are made straight before me. Nothing is impossible to me because the greater One lives in me, and by His power working in, and through me, I’m creating my victorious and prosperous life, from glory to glory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
