The words that you speak prior to the time of crisis or during the time of crisis are crucial to the outcome of the crisis. It determines everything that will happen in your life at that particular point in time. That is months or even years after you go through the event. So it is important you understand the wisdom of God when it comes to the use of your tongue in the time of crisis.
The best way to know how to use one’s tongue properly is to understand the law of confession. When a particular act is carried out in which one can predict the outcome of the given action; it means a law is in operation. This means once this step or set of activity is carried out, the result or outcome of it will either be predictable, set or fixed. Confession therefore, is a law and as such when you carry out the act of what is called confessing the results are predictable within your life. Confession means speaking the word of God.
Jesus said For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith(Mark11vs23).What this means is that your words will precede the events of your life. Thus, if you want to have anything you must understand that you must first say whatever you want before you can have it. This is because there is a direct connection between your words and what you have in your life. That is the way God has wired and designed man when He breathe into man the breath of life in the beginning. The scripture says “and man became a living soul after God breath into him the breath of life”. The Hebrew bible or the original rendering of that passage in the Hebrew language says, “And man became a speaking spirit like God”. This means what was impacted into the dust of the ground when the body of man was formed was the ability to become another speaking spirit like God. You cannot separate what is going on in the life of a person from the words coming out of the lips of the person.
On the order hand, there are things that may happen in the life of a person that are not a direct consequence of what they have said. For instance, when Jesus said if they persecuted me they will also persecute you. He also said ‘in this world there are tribulations but there will be a severance’ i.e a separation between you and those things that are happening. But the outcome of those things will be based on the words that you speak.
That is why sometimes you cannot stop certain things from happening on the outside. For instance you have no control over the feelings that people have towards you. But your response to it can be controlled and your response to it will eventually determine what your experience will be in that particular situation. This means there are certain things that are out of your control. But you can have full control over it through your response to it. And when you respond correctly the experience that you will have within yourself as you go through it will be like the bible tells us in Psalm 23; that “though you walk through the valley of the shadow of death you shall fear no evil”. Meaning on the inside you will feel a sense of quietness and assurance, a sense of inner security and safety. A confidence walk, where there will be absolutely no movement; your heart will not move like the wind that blows because you know God is with you. This will be your experience within, and then you will find out that God has prepared a table before you in the presence of your enemies and your cup will run over. And through it all you will see clearly that even though you walk through the valley of the shadow of death only goodness and mercy will follow you all the days of your life.
At the end of the day and as a result of your words you will see that your personal experience is different from the circumstances that you are confronted with or going through. All this is as a result of the words coming out of your lips. Your tongue is the only key that can bring a difference to any challenge that you are faced with. There is power in the word of God and when you speak it that is the key and the starting point for any manifestation in one’s life to begin.
