According to the oxford dictionary, the tongue is a fleshly muscular organ of the mouth of a mammal, used for tasting, swallowing, and (on humans) and articulating speech.
The tongue is also a powerful force. It is the doorway of life for our body, soul, and spirit. Not only is it designed to feed our bodies, but it also has the power to nourish our soul and spirit. …Words kill, words give life; they are either poison or fruits- we choose.
As children of God, our tongue has a lot of power. Proverbs 18:21, confirms this by saying, “Death and life is in the power of the tongue, those who love it will eat the fruits thereof.”
Have you ever wondered why your desires and thirst for a healthy relationship never worked or came to pass? Have you ever thought or felt there are some supernatural powers fighting against your quest to find love or partner? Or have you ever felt, your friends or families could be a hindrance against your desire to find love or a partner? Have you also thought your inability to keep relationships is a result of incompatibility? Have you ever traveled far and near to seek solutions in keeping a true love relationship/marriage but never found?
Beloved, let me tell you, all the positive answers to these questions and finding better solutions lies on you. You have the power to control your love life. Most of the misfortunes you found in your relationships/marriages are due to your negative confessions. The words we speak as humans have direct impacts on our lives. Even though we use the tongue to say good things, we could also use it to destroy our love lives. Jesus said something in John 6:63b (KJV), “The words I speak unto you they are life and spirit”. In other words, words are spirit and are life. The spoken words of God created the whole world. In other words, the tongue can curse and bless one at the same time.
The tongue is a very powerful tool. It could either make or unmake us. Every word we say could have negative or positive effects on us. When a fire is lighted, it starts to burn gradually then it consumes everything within the shortest possible time. This is how powerful the tongue is. In 1Peter 3:10, KJV: “For, he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips from speaking deceit”. According to this scripture, what we must take note is refraining our tongue from evil. Most of us are suffering in our relationships as a result of the negative words we spoke or some negative confessions we made. Let us take a close look at some of these negative confessions:
Let's do a self-check
Have you used any of these sentences below before?
“As for me, I do not believe in Love”
“All men/women are the same”
“ Nowadays, we don’t love with our heart, but rather love with our mind”
“ If I marry, it is not because of love but because there is the need to marry”
“My wife/husband is a cheater, so I will never give her/him a true love”
"In our family marriages never survive for the long run"
"There are no good men/woman out there, they are all taken"
"It's hard to find a good woman/man out there"
"Life is too short"
"Every man is a cheater"
"I am always cheated on"
"Nobody likes me"
"The world is always against me"
"Nothing goes well for me"
"I will never find anyone who truly loves me"
"Men/women always take me for granted"
These are some of the negative confessions we normally make. When we make these confessions, the devil stands on it and use it to fight against us. We sometimes apportion blame on innocent people who have no hand in our predicaments. But unknowingly to us, we are hooked by our own words. In 1Peter 5:8, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, and seeking whom he may devour:” Job 1:7, And the Lord said unto Satan, whence cometh thou? Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, from going to and from in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.” The above scriptures help us to understand that Satan is always around us. This is so because he tempted Jesus after His fasting in Matthew 4:1-11. He is a spirit and manipulates our lives spiritually through evil spirits who are not physical beings. He also works on our minds, emotions, and thoughts and influences for us to fall on our negative convictions which finally affects our physical life.
As people who want to enjoy our relationship/marriage, we should measure our confessions. We should use the right words even amid troubles. Always say, “There are still good men/women and I will get or meet one”, “ True love still exists and I believe in Love”, “My wife/husband will be the best”, “ My partner will come back to his senses, I will pray for him/her”. “I will always love my partner”
If you say these kinds of words, it reflects on you, and the outcome would be the best. Never join the multitudes to confess some words which you would live to regret later. There is power in the tongue and the powerful results come as you eat the fruit thereof. If you confess good things, you will reap good things. And if you say bad things, you will reap negative things or disappointment.
REMEMBER LOVE IS THE ULTIMATE GOAL.
