Hello, My name is Diane McDaniel, pastor of Bethel Dallas Church. Welcome to God Today. I am excited for the opportunity to talking to you about watching your mouth. There is a scripture 18:21 that says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” I want to ask you really quick – have you paid attention to what you are speaking? Have you paid attention to what you’re actually saying? It is interesting how great we can be about speaking a life over everybody else, but then speaking death on ourselves. We are our worst critics – especially as women. We look in the mirror and tell ourselves, “We aren’t this, we aren’t that.” We look in the mirror and we think we should be prettier, our teeth should be whiter. At the same time, I want you start thinking about what you can actually start speaking. Remembering the scripture that detaha nd life is in the power of the tongue. “Those that love it will eat of it.” That is another part of the scripture that is so important for you to understand. What you speak is what you will eat of.
I am going to ask you to just start taking note of what is coming out of your mouth. Whether it is what you’re speaking towards your husband, towards your wife, what you are saying about your children, what you are saying about your friends. Any area of your life – the more you speak life, the more you will see the blessing of life in your life. I am going to help you will really pay attention.
I am going to pray for you right now that you will take a few notes, you take time to be very intentional – there’s the word intentional – to start paying attention to what you’re speaking and that what comes out of your mouth is life. Heavenly Father, we thank you for the opportunity that they are taking the time to pay attention to exactly what is coming out of their mouth. They would be stirred in understanding, they would be prompted that when what is not of you comes out of their mouth and that they would correct it and start to speak the life you have for them. Thank you so much, in Jesus’ name we pray.
