“Death and life are in the power of the tongue and those who love it will eat its fruit.” (Prov 18:21)
We all know it, but we rarely stop to think before we speak. The tongue is powerful. With it, James said, we can bless God and curse men. Our speech today can lift people up, bringing life, or tear them down, bringing death. It can bring life or death to others and to us.
Jesus said in Matthew 12:34 that “the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart.” Whatever is in your heart will ultimately come out of your mouth. If there is bitterness within, angry, harsh words come out. If there is kindness, your words will bless others.
This is why 3 things are essential:
Can you imagine what would happen today if all of us simply did these three things and that every word that came from our mouths today was “good for edification, fit for the need of the moment, and gave grace to those who hear?” (Ephesians 4:29)

Pay attention to holiness. Be intentional about all He has already said to you. Set aside deliberate time to fast, pray, and read and meditate on His Word. Be extremely careful about your obedience.
And then, cry out to Him for greater intimacy. For as clear as His conditions are for you to see Him, they are clearly promised! He desires to reveal Himself to you more than you are aware for He is a God of perfect love towards you.
