More about The Tongue
It is our tongue that determines our destiny in the ultimate. Whether we are happy or sad, depends on the general use of our tongue and thoughts. Little as the tongue is, its power and influence determine the destiny of an individual. We must weigh the import of our words before we let them out. Many lives have been wounded, crushed and destroyed through the misuse of the tongue. The things we think or say, carry a potent force that can either construct or destroy. Our utterances are powerful energy, just like aerodynamics, strong enough to propel our dreams to fruition. Our words can heal, words can kill, words can bless, words can curse, words can bring peace, words can cause war, words can break you, words can make you, words can lift you up, words can bring you down, words can bring faith, words can also bring fear. Christianity is basically a Kingdom ruled or governed by Words, operating by crop farming. Confessing God’s Word into our lives is like a farmer sowing seed on a field. Transforming lives by spoken word. The kind of words we feed on will determine how far we go in life. The words we speak have a direct and definite effect upon our thoughts. Thoughts generate words. For words are the vehicles of wisdom. Words also affect thoughts and help to condition it to create attitudes. Friends, you must be mindful of what you say before you sign off your life to eternal damnation. A loose tongue or thoughtless tongue is not to be trusted with secrets. Sometimes, no answer is the right answer or else you may be ensnared by your words. Whatever you say with your tongue per-time is either breaking your destiny or making it. Every word you speak goes a long way in determining your eternal destiny. Your tongue does not only shape your destiny but the destinies of others including your own children.
