Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. – Proverbs 18:21
The power of the tongue is an unfamiliar subject to many Christians today. The Bible didn’t say that death and life are in God’s hands. Rather, it says they are in the power of the tongue! The tongue is small in size but it directs the course of your life!
Often times, when people want something from God, they’ll cry, roll on the floor, whine and bellyache; not realizing that the power to get what they want is in their mouths. Jesus taught on the creative power and potency of our mouth-work in Mark 11:23: “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”.
God has given you His Word and a tongue to create the future you desire. You can be everything God has planned for you to be and attain the greatest height of success in life if you’d learn to use your tongue right. Never talk failure, weakness, sickness, lack or fear! Speak faith-filled words all the time. Build your future with your tongue.
The power to live a successful, prosperous, glorious and victorious life is in your mouth, not with the Lord. He’s already done all that’s necessary for you to live a glorious life; now He expects your confessions-every word you speak to align with His Word. Are there good things you desire in your life today? All you need do is, speak them forth, and you shall have what you say. That’s faith! No matter what the problem may be or how big it may seem, the solution is in your mouth; speak God’s Word and see it resolved.

Confession (Faith’s Declaration)
I’m building my life on a solid foundation of success and prosperity through the words I speak, for the power to be all that God wants me to be is in my mouth. Therefore I use my mouth rightly; I’m enjoying the full benefits of salvation as consummated by the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ; the words I speak are in consonance with the eternal Word of God.
