“The tongue has the power of life and death.” Proverbs 18: 21 NIV
Open your mouth and praise the Lord. Open your mouth and speak life. Open your mouth and rebuke evil. Open your mouth to confess that Jesus is Lord.
Don’t stay silent when you’re in pain. Go ahead and cry out to the Lord. When you’ve been told that there is no cure or that God’s promises won’t be fulfilled, shout out the Word. Scream, “I am healed by his stripes! God loves me so much that he gave his only son! God will fulfill that which concerns me! All things are possible through Christ who strengthens me!”
You’re not shy when it comes to talking about how bad things are. You’re not afraid to complain. Why are you scared to speak what you know in your heart to be true? God loves you. He came so that you can have an abundant life. Open your mouth and move some mountains. Sing his praises. He hears you and so does the enemy. They tremble at the mention of the name of Jesus and they rejoice when you speak doubt and hatred. Now, do you want to make the enemy tremble or rejoice? I don’t care if you yell, just open your mouth.
“My mouth will speak in praise of the Lord. Let every creature praise his holy name for ever and ever.” Psalm 145:21 NIV
