When we speak our words contain power and we release that power into the world around us. Proverbs 18:21 "Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit." The trouble is it doesn't say that 'life and life' are in the power of the tongue but it declares that death and life are in the power of our tongue. We have the ability to choose what words we will speak but once we speak, our words have the power to fulfill their assignment. Isaiah 55:11 "So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it." Life words will bring light and light has the power to dispel the darkness. Death words will bring darkness and darkness is the realm where our enemy works. Our assignment and prayer for today Psalm 141:3 "Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; Keep watch over the door of my lips. Hebrews 13:15 "Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name." My confidence in you is high to speak wisely and have a blessed day.
This Sunday is Family Sunday and the Holy Spirit has been using this event to draw many people to the Kingdom of God. Please invite a friend and bring some food as we start at 10:15 with Food and Fellowship followed by the morning service. We provide name tags for everyone to help us all get to know each other better. Thank you for being a part of our growing church. Our last Family Sunday we had around 270 people in the service and I have been praying that we will soon reach 300.
Continue to pray for all those in need, looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice
