Your mouth is the steering wheel by which you bear fruit in your life. What fruit are you speaking into your life? Are you speaking life or death from your mouth? You have a choice as to what you speak. You may be sick, you may have a headache, you may be emotionally burdened yet what you speak will steer your direction. Are you speaking into your life what God says? Are you allowing your emotions, feelings and body to speak or are you allowing the Spirit of God in you to SPEAK? When you choose to speak to the Spirit of God in you, all heaven will open up for you. Speaking to the Spirit of God does not have anything to do with your circumstances, feelings or emotions.
Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen and understand. What goes into a man’s mouth does not make him ‘unclean,’ but what comes out of his mouth, that is what makes him ‘unclean.’ ” Matthew 15:10-11
From the fruit of his mouth a man’s stomach is filled; with the harvest from his lips he is satisfied.
The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. Proverbs 18:20-21
He who guards his mouth and his tongue keeps himself from calamity. Proverbs 21: 23
“Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit. You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him. But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.” Matthew 12:33-37
From the fruit of his lips a man enjoys good things, but the unfaithful have a craving for violence.
He who guards his lips (mouth) guards his life, but he who speaks rashly will come to ruin. Proverbs 13:2-3
A man finds joy in giving an apt reply-and how good is a timely word! Proverbs 15:23
22″Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. 23″I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.”
But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. Romans 10:8-10
