For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body. Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body(James 3vs2-3)
A person who understands the power of words and masters it will have mastery over his own life. Though, horses are stronger than man yet man discovered that he can control the horse and its entire body through its mouth. This illustration simply shows the way man can have mastery over his own life through his tongue. Our aim as believers is to target how to regulate the words that comes out of our mouth because every event that will happen in our life is shaped and perfected by the spoken word. Therefore, if you are looking to God for the fulfillment of certain things you must never speak words that will contradict that which your heart is yearning for. You must master this principle. You cannot say things that contradict your heart’s intent. This means if you want enlargement you speak words of enlargement regardless of what is happening around you. You must learn how to align your body through the words that you speak in other to get that which you seek.
This has been God’s plan from the beginning for mankind to use words to create the impossible. In other for God to achieve this He needs to take total control of our life. And the only way He can achieve this is to put His words in our mouth, which is the same way bits are put into horse’s mouth and it controls their entire body. In that same way God will put His words into our mouth to control our body and regulate our entire life.
You must understand that you move or progress towards the direction of the words that you speak consistently and you cannot rise beyond the level of your words. This means if you want change in your life you have got to raise the language you speak about yourself, future and life. The bible says, For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile(1Peter 3:10). If you want your days to be better change the words that come out of your lips and you will dramatically improve the state of your life. Do not speak negative words. Instead talk about where you are going and let your words be consistent with the vision that is in your heart.
Your heart must be in alignment with the words in your mouth. The bible says, “The word is nigh thee,even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach (Romans 10:8). This scripture is the secret to getting results as a believer. This is because God speaks His word to us in order for us to to speak it out of our lips and that is where it gets into our heart and begins to regulate our lives and create things on the outside. Therefore, as a believer you have got to change your words to the right words in order for it to be consistent with every outcome that you seek in your heart. Align yourself and your words with your vision and you will be amazed at the result. You also have to create time to practice speaking those words for the fulfillment of that vision within your life. You must understand how powerful your words are because with it you reach into the experience of the things you have seen in the word of God and you call those things into existence as though they were into your life. Therefore, from now on ensure every word that comes out of your mouth is with intent and purpose.
