I am finding this is more and more how important it is to watch my tongue and to think before I speak. He SPOKE all things into existence. Man created in the image of God is like a mini creator and he too can create something out of the words he speaks. I am finding that is why I am watching my tongue more and more, because words have power, and can create situations that can cause great grief or joy. Proverbs 18:21 says, Death and life is in the power of the tongue and those who love it will eat its fruits."
As believers, we have the free will to either believe or not to believe God's word. I would like to share with you some verses that have been a blessing to me to fight LIES of the enemy. Satan loves to twist the truth and cause us to doubt God's word. Don't let him. If God said it, than I believe it. 2 Cor. 10:3-6 says," For though we in the flesh we are not waging war according to the flesh. For weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds........and take captive every thought CAPTIVE to obey Christ" God's word is final.
I pray the following verses will encourage you as it has me to believe and obey God's word over your own thoughts.
