The power of the tongue
The subject of the tongue can never be over emphasized or over-flogged because virtually every problem that's in the world today is largely due to the wrong use of the tongue. I know so many people would dismiss this truth because, probably they've never given it a serious thought, or maybe the mouth seem so insignificant and valueless to them apart from its traditional use of eating and then communication. And speaking of communication, i'd like to point out here that we should look beyond our communication line as been only with our fellow man. Communication can also be between man and animal. Its not strange again seeing men speaking to animals( e.g a dog or a cat) as if talking to a fellow human and it listens and obeys them. So also we communicate unconsciously to inanimate objects around us daily, and funny enough they do respond back to us without us knowing. Most people communicate with their health or body by making remarks about their health, also by giving voice to their feelings, or confessing the doctor's report concerning their health. And then the body responds back to them based on what they said. Many today also communicates with their finances every minute of the day, especially when there's a need to be met. That's when you hear stuffs like "am broke, i don't have any money or worst still, things are really bad". We all communicate with things within or around us, especially our present situations daily and often more than we communicate with a living or animate thing. Have you wondered why God had to put the tongue in an enclosed place unlike the nose, the eye or the ear. It was never accidental! God did it so because of the very peculiar and important nature of the tongue. He knows that if its allowed to run loose, man would really be in deep trouble, hence the need to cage it. The book of james described the tongue as "..a fire..."(James 3:6). Many happy homes had been ruinned by wrong use of the tongue either by the partners involved or by a third party. Great businesses had collapsed due to the wrong use of the tongue or language. Our mouth is not designed for eating alone, its intended to create for us avenues of escape in the face of danger or hurt. Our tongue has power to give us life in the place of death by speaking life into a death threatning situation. We can create the life we so dream of by constantly speaking them into existence. I know these things might seem too easy, foolish and even stupid but they are really not as the tongue is rather your instrument of lifting and change for the best. Learn to use them to your advantage by speaking positive and life giving words always.
