Control Your Talk


“Words satisfy the soul as food satisfies the stomach; the right words on a person’s lips bring satisfaction. Those who love to talk will experience the consequences, for the tongue can kill or nourish life.” (Proverbs 18:20-21) NLT

This scripture lets you know you’re the architect of your life, though some people don’t believe this. Some others don’t even understand it; but it doesn’t change its truism. The life you’re living today is the exact picture you painted with your words yesterday.

Your talk is your future. Your tongue is the director of your life. James says the tongue is like the rudder of a great ship which the captain steers in order to direct the ship where he wants  (James 3:2). This means that where your tongues goes, your life goes. If your tongue speaks poverty, lack, failure or sickness, that’s the way your life will be. But if you speak health, wealth, success and abundance, that’s what you’ll always have in your life.

I can’t tell you this enough! What you have today is the result of what you said yesterday. The good news is that you have full control over your own life through your words. Nobody else can steer your life in a direction you don’t want it to go, except you let them. That you know you’re responsible for how your life turns out is not enough; you must make a quality decision to speak only the right words- God’s Word- about yourself. You’ll be amazed at how successful and glorious your life would turn out!
