First, we must realize talking is natural. Most people talk. Some randomly talk, and other people talk all the time. When people desire something to happen, they usually would request or demand for the matter to be accomplished. For example, Joe goes to his brother and ask him for a tool to fix his car. The mouth is being used naturally, like many people do everyday.
God, our Creator, spoke creation into existence (Genesis 1). God use spoken commands to bring forth creation. The scriptures go on to say that we were made in His likeness and His image (Genesis 1:26). This ought to give us some hint that we should follow after the pattern of God’s system of bringing about creative ideas and thoughts.
Proverbs 18:21 shows us if we want life or death, it is all in our tongue. In order to be saved and receive eternal life, we must confess with our mouth (Romans 10:9,10). If we desire eternal death (hopefully, no one reading this chooses this path), we either don’t use our mouth to ask for salvation (John 3:18), or we blaspheme the Holy Ghost (Matthew 12:31). Your mouth is so powerful, yet most people rarely use it accurately for the good that it could bring in their lives.
You have the ability to control things with your mouth. Psalm 8:4-6 KJV reads, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? And the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, And hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; Thou hast put all things under his feet.
God intended for humans to have dominion over everything except humans, angels, and himself. We were designed to natrually rule over creation; this includes evil spirits (Mark 3:15). Since the fall of man, the Lord Jesus has provided restoration to us with the authority to rule over creation.
For example, if a dumb and deaf spirit has filled a man and has taken control of him, you have the power to speak and command the spirits to leave. However, if a man insist on acting dumb or even committing evil by his own will, you have no power over the will of man. The will of man can be persuaded, but not overtaken unless that man gives permission. Not even God will override the will of man. Satan tries, but only man can make his own choices. You have the power of the tongue to put order to everyday situations by binding the evil influences of the spirit world.
We are creative beings ready to reproduce and create. Do you have a thought or an idea? Do you desire to see it come to pass? Try speaking it out loud and command the situation to take place. In Matthew 21:21,22 KJV, Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
Death and life is in your mouth. You have the ability to speak life or death. You have power to control and create. Exercise your faith daily by being careful to use your tongue in an effective way that would bring glory to God.
