Your Speech Controls Your Life by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Your Speech Controls Your Life by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

For in many things we offend all. If any
man offend not in word, the same is a
perfect man, and able also to bridle the
whole body (James 3:2).

Christian perfection or maturity is expressed
chiefly in your mouth—your communication.
If you want to go in the right direction in life,
your tongue is the compass. If you offend in words, that
is, if your communication is unwholesome, your life will
be in jeopardy. Your speech controls you.

Proverbs 18:21 says, “Death and life are in the
power of the tongue….” Jesus said, “…out of the
abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh” (Matthew
12:34). So, through your thoughts, your character is
formed, but it’s expressed in your talk, in your words.
Meaning, your thinking is your character; but your
“talking” is your life. That’s how important your words
are.

Romans 10:10 says, “…with the mouth
confession is made unto salvation.” It’s a principle. God
said to Joshua, “This book of the law shall not depart
out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day
and night…” (Joshua 1:8).

Meditate on the Word of God; keep it in your
mouth. That means keep affirming the Word. No matter
what’s happening around you, speak the Word. The
Bible says, “When men are cast down, then thou shalt
say, There is lifting up…” (Job 22:29). Again, the emphasis is on what you say.

When things are rough and tough, you’re not
to wait to be lifted; you have a lifting power; it’s in
your mouth. With your mouth, you catapult yourself
from obscurity to greatness! You lift yourself from the
thraldom of inflation, austerity and lack to abundance.
It’s about what you say! Declare that you’re supremely
blessed, prosperous and walking in financial
abundance, and your life will gravitate in that direction.

What is it that you want? It’s all in your mouth.
Say it, and you’ll have it! That’s what Jesus said in
Mark 11:23: “For verily I say unto you…whosoever shall
say…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.” Blessed be God!

CONFESSION
My speech is modelled in line with God’s thoughts
and direction for my life. I declare that prosperity,
victory, success, growth and financial abundance are
the hallmarks of my life. Amen!
