Acts 5:19-20 (KJV)
19 But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth, and said,20 Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life.
Speak life to the darkest night. There is power in our words. We have the power of the Holy Spirit to heal, create, empower and give life when we abide in Jesus Christ and speak His Word. There is no power on earth greater than that of a voice led by the Holy Spirit.
Proverbs 18:21 (KJV) – Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Our words create, empower and give life. A cold heart behind words can tear apart relationships, cause strife and kill efforts to produce peace. Christians should utilize their weapons and speak life to the death in this world. Claim joy for the depressed. Claim victory over fear, confusion and negativity.
Psalm 34:13 (KJV) – Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
Society wants “honesty” at all cost. Negativity is the most popular form of communicating. A cynical person will argue violently that a cup is half empty, even though it is clearly half full. The world does not understand speaking by faith. The way things appear is not always the way they are. Keep your tongue from quoting evil and speak new life.
John 6:63 (KJV) – It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
