The Bible tells us that death and life are in the power of tongue and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof (Proverbs 18:21). We are further told that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment; for by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned (Matthew 12:36 & 37). Most of the difficult problems or situations we are experiencing today are as a result of our negative thoughts and confessions of our mouths. Hear what the Bible has to say about this: The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips (Proverbs 16:13). The battle of the mind is the greatest battle you have to fight, and it is a battle you have to win; for if you lose this battle, you lose everything. Therefore, at all times, you must come against negative thoughts that contradict the word of God, as well as the great things that you desire in your heart. Not only can the wrong thoughts entertained in your mind cause your prayers to be ineffective, it can also cause you to sin against God. The state of your mind can determine whether you are going to heaven or hell fire. Remember, God judges by the heart. In essence, the kind of information you process in your mind and the confeesion of your mouth will determine your destiny. Author: Evangelist K.
