When life presses in,

How do I respond?

Am I creating life or death in

The power of my tongue?


I point my words where I want to go.


Steer a horse by its bit.

Point a ship by its rudder.

Even so the course of my body

As spoken through my mouth,

Knows the fruit of what is sown.


Out of the abundance of my heart, I speak many words.  What I say has the power to defile my temple or bless it.  My words set the natural course of my body towards fiery death or abundant life.  My words can set my health towards the destructive fire of the demonic.  My words will justify me or condemn me.  My words can bring sweetness to my soul and health to my bones.  What do I want to say today?


Prov 18:20-21 NKJV

A man's stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth; From the produce of his lips he shall be filled.  Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.


James 3:12 NKJV

My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment. 2 For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body. 3 Indeed, we put bits in horses' mouths that they may obey us, and we turn their whole body. 4 Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires. 5 Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things.

See how great a forest a little fire kindles! 6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell. 7 For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. 8 But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 9 With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God. 10 Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so. 11 Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening? 12 Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh.  


Matt 12:36-37 NKJV

But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.  For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned."
