His Spoken Word


Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

—Proverbs 18:21



The words you speak are powerful. They either speak life or death. You have the power to speak life into yourself and others. When you speak God’s words which are spirit and life, your words are His words. You speak His unfailing truth—you speak His promise—and you speak His resurrection power.


His words to you:

How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth (Psalm: 119:103)!


Your words to others and to yourself:

Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones (Proverbs 16:24).


His words to you:

My son, give attention to my words. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh (Proverbs: 4:20, 22).


Your words to others and to yourself:

But the tongue of the wise promotes health (Proverbs 12:18).


His words to you:

Your words were found, and I ate them, and Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; for I am called by Your name, O Lord God of hosts. (Jeremiah 15:16).


Your words to others and to yourself:

A man’s stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth; from the produce of his lips he shall be filled (Proverbs 18:20).



When you “find” God’s Word in your heart, you take ownership of its Truth. When you believe His Word and surrender to it, you change. You conform to His Word. You agree with it. Fear surrenders to peace. Despair surrenders to joy. Sickness surrenders to health. Down deep in your heart, His words have become your treasure—your Truth—and the rejoicing of your heart. The words of the Spirit have become life to you. Those words are who you are. You must never stop speaking His Word of Truth into yourself. The enemy would like nothing more than to steal God’s Truth from your heart. 


“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks” (Luke 6:45).


How you speak reveals the treasure in your heart (Matthew 12:34-35). Your treasure is life, peace, joy, and health from hearing God’s words, or it can be resentment, anger, and death from hearing the world. 


Death and life are in the power of your tongue. God’s Word satisfies your heart, and His Word in your heart determines the course of your life. Those who receive God’s Word deep in their heart shall eat of its fruit. They shall receive its Truth. His Word shall be the joy of their heart. They shall speak life to themselves and others out of their heart's abundance.



Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer (Psalm 19:14).


What do you meditate on? Is it what the Word speaks or is it what the world speaks? Is it what the Holy Spirit reveals or it is what your mind reasons and your experience dictate? Mediating on God’s Word and sowing it in your heart brings joy to God’s heart and joy to yours! When you find His Truth and receive it in your heart, His Word is healing to your whole life. 


Never forget! The words you speak out of the good treasure of your heart are powerful. His Word spoken into your life is powerful, and out of its abundance, you shall receive its Truth.
