The Power Of The Tongue 2

Kidz World Today - Children’s Church
Hebrews 4:12 NKJV
12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Confession of Faith
I am not moved by what I see or by what I feel. I am moved by what I believe. I believe the WORD of God! The victory is mine! I have it now! I can see it through the eyes of my faith!
The Power Of The Tongue
Last Week - We started looking at the Power Of The Tongue
Proverbs 18:21 AMP
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life].
Words Are Spiritual - They Carry Power
The Words You Speak -Impact Your Life
The Tongue Is A Little Member In The Body
James 3:1–5 NLT
1 Dear brothers and sisters, not many of you should become teachers in the church, for we who teach will be judged more strictly. 2 Indeed, we all make many mistakes. For if we could control our tongues, we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way. 3 We can make a large horse go wherever we want by means of a small bit in its mouth. 4 And a small rudder makes a huge ship turn wherever the pilot chooses to go, even though the winds are strong. 5 In the same way, the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches. But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire.
The entire course of nature and The circumstances surrounding every human being are controlled by that person’s tongue.
No matter how big or strong a horse may be, he can be controlled by a small piece of iron in his mouth. No matter what size a ship or how fierce the winds are against it, it can be directed by the helm, or rudder.
Your tongue is the deciding factor in your life.
No matter how fierce the storm or how serious the problem, your tongue will turn it.
No storm is so big that you, as a believer, cannot overcome it with God’s Word in your mouth. Your confession will control your ship in the storm.
The Tongue Is a Fire
James 3:6 NKJV
6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell.
James 3:6 NLT
6 And among all the parts of the body, the tongue is a flame of fire. It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your entire body. It can set your whole life on fire, for it is set on fire by hell itself.
The tongue is to your circumstances what kindling is to a fire.
Kindling is where the fire starts.
A huge bonfire is begun by only a tiny piece of kindling.
You can’t start a fire with a big log. It won’t burn.
You have to begin with tiny bits and pieces of wood to use as kindling.
When you set the kindling on fire, it in turn will cause the log to burn.
Proverbs 18:21 NLT
21 The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.
Matthew 15:11 NKJV
11 Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.”
Matthew 15:18 NKJV
18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man.
Malachi 3:13 NLT
13 “You have said terrible things about me,” says the Lord. “But you say, ‘What do you mean? What have we said against you?’
James 3:10–12 NLT
10 And so blessing and cursing come pouring out of the same mouth. Surely, my brothers and sisters, this is not right! 11 Does a spring of water bubble out with both fresh water and bitter water? 12 Does a fig tree produce olives, or a grapevine produce figs? No, and you can’t draw fresh water from a salty spring.
Speaking the Word in Faith
So How Do I Put Out The Fire!
Ephesians 5:26 AMP
26 So that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word,
Get the Word of God down deep into your spirit man.
Matthew 12:34 NKJV
34 Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
When the Word is in your heart in abundance, it will come out your mouth.
By speaking God’s Word, you replace the negative forces at work in your life with the positive forces from the good treasure of your heart.
Just as your words loosed the power of Satan, so can your words loose the power of God.
Your words brought death and sickness; God’s Word in your mouth will bring life and healing. Your words produced poverty and lack; God’s Word will produce prosperity and abundance.
Have Faith In God
Mark 11:22 NKJV
22 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God.
Mark 11:23 NKJV
23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
Words carry power.
They convey either life or death, blessing or cursing.
Have you ever stopped to think why it is so repulsive to hear people use God’s name in vain?
Hosea 4:6 NKJV
6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.
