Speaking Things into Existence

Good morning Ekklesia Family

Proverbs 18:21 tells us, "The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit." This verse emphasizes the profound impact our words can have. Our speech can build up or tear down, bless or curse, heal or wound. As believers, we are called to use ourɓ words wisely, aligning them with God’s truth and purpose.

In the original Hebrew text, the word "power" signifies both authority and capability. Thus, the tongue holds a potent force that can shape reality. The "fruit" mentioned implies the consequences of our words, both positive and negative. When we speak life, we align with God's creative power, echoing His voice that spoke the universe into existence. Conversely, speaking words of death can lead to destruction and despair, contrary to God's intentions for our lives.

1. Speak God's Promises - Begin each day by declaring God's promises over your life. Instead of focusing on your struggles, proclaim His faithfulness, healing, and provision. Say, "I am more than a conqueror through Him who loves me" (Romans 8:37) or "God will supply all my needs according to His riches in glory" (Philippians 4:19).

2. Build Others Up - Use your words to encourage and uplift those around you. When you see someone struggling, speak words of hope and affirmation. Remind them of their worth and God’s love for them. Your positive words can ignite faith and bring comfort to weary hearts.

3. Guard Against Negativity - Be mindful of speaking negatively about yourself or others. When tempted to complain or criticize, pause and choose words that bring life. Replace "I can't" with "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" (Philippians 4:13).

4. Pray with Authority - When you pray, use the authority given to you by Christ. Declare His will and His word over your circumstances. Speak healing, provision, and breakthrough with confidence, knowing that your words align with God’s power.

Ekklesia Family, remember, your words carry the power to shape your reality and influence the lives of others. Let your speech reflect the heart of God, bringing life, encouragement, and faith wherever you go. Embrace the divine authority entrusted to you, and watch as God's kingdom unfolds through the power of your tongue.

May you be blessed and may your words bring forth life, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
