Comment:

We cannot emphasize enough, the importance of speaking what is right. Our words have great influence on our lives. We can, and should, speak words that release blessings on our lives, but in this part we will focus on the need not to speak words that create difficulties for us.

We can speak curses that release demonic activity. You might say: “But I never speak curses”. You may not do it consciously, but your words can nevertheless have that effect. Let’s look at some examples:

“I wish I was dead!” You may not actually fully mean what you said, but such a statement serves as a curse and evil spirits are trying to carry out your wish.

“I’m never going to succeed!” When you said this you probably didn’t mean that you will never succeed, but you said it because of frustration, in a situation where you failed. Whether you meant it or not, the evil spirits hear what you say, and they will start acting to carry it out.

“Nobody cares about me!” Maybe it’s true that you are alone, and no one cares, but is that how you want it to continue? You need to be aware that your words release demonic activity making your words come true.

The list of incorrect statements can go on forever, but our intent is to give you an understanding of how your words affect your life. Watch your mouth and your tongue if you want to keep yourself out of trouble!
