USE PERFECT SPEECH
(Your Words Will Either Lift You Up Or Drag You Down)
👤 Pastor Chris Oyakhilome,
📖 TO THE BIBLE
James 3:2 “For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.”
◀️ LET’S TALK
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, “…For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks” (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 from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it 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 KJV). 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 negative situation you’re facing to the positive one. It’s about what you say! Declare that you’re supremely blessed, prosperous, smart, full of wisdom and walking in health and 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: “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, “Go, throw yourself into the sea,” and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them” (NIV). Glory!

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!
