Too many of us don’t speak life. We speak defeat, sickness, weakness and sadness. We must know that God does not life and He said if we speak it, it will come into life. We must be careful of our words. We have the power of life and death in our tongues so we must not take that lightly. My seven year old daughter, Peyton tells me everyday, “speak it mommy and it will happen”. After researching the topic of speaking words I know see how serious she is about this area in our lives. Below are some scriptures that I have found and that I will be meditating on a daily basis from here on forward.
Please allow these words into your heart, mind, and spirit and watch God move.

You brood of vipers! How can you speak good, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
