‘Death and life are in the power of the tongue…’ Proverbs 18:21

Your words either work   for you or against you. The Bible says, ‘Death and life are in the power of   the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.’ The old saying,   ‘You’ll eat your words,’ is more than a meaningless cliche, it’s the truth!   Jeremiah the prophet writes, ‘Your words were found, and I ate them, and Your   word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart…’ (Jeremiah 15:16 NKJV).   The Psalmist writes, ‘They cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and He   saved them out of their distresses (worries). He sent His word and healed   them…’ (Psalms 107:19-20 NKJV). God’s Word is the medicine that heals   worry. So what God has to say about the issue must be what you have to say   about it too, otherwise you’re contradicting Him and disconnecting yourself   from the source of all blessing. If you’re wise, you will surround yourself   with like-minded people who speak God’s Word into your life, and limit your   time with those who have no interest in it. If you want to grow the right   kind of fruit, you must have the right climate. And the words you speak (and   listen to) determine the climate of your life, the direction in which it   goes, and the results you get. There is no ‘secret’ to success. The Bible   says that when you learn to ‘meditate day and night’ in God’s Word, you will   ‘prosper in all [you do]’ (Psalms 1:1-3 NLT). So the answer to your worries   is in God’s Word!
