Speaking in the Life of Faith

Proverbs 18:20,21
"With the fruit of a man's mouth his stomach will be satisfied;  He will be satisfied with the product of his lips.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit."

There are a lot of subjects in this scripture.
We get what we talk about.

What we talk about and love is what we get.
Eat its fruit means, just as what we eat becomes part of us so what we talk about becomes part of us.
Watch over what you talk about, because when you love what you talk about you will get it.

Fruit is a product of work and reproduces the same.
Fruit is a sign of maturity.
Talking is like the seed and fruit is the result of it. So be careful that you talk about the things that you want to come to pass.

Speech has strength.
affects others
affects yourself
affects the spirit realm.
Prayer is speech and with it we can effect God. Do not take what you say lightly.

If we don't watch our speech we will at least not be functioning with God. And at worst we will be working in cross purposes with Him.

My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord,
And all flesh shall bless His holy name forever and ever
Psalm 145:21

Speak in faith what God has told you. Testify of the goodness of God. Jesus brings to the Father what we talk about and what we pray for.  He is the high priest of our confession. Heb 3:1

When we hear from God, we can speak for God.
