To kill or not to kill

A pleasant afternoon from South Africa. The weather is excruciatingly hot. But, I don’t know if I should be grateful or I should wish I was in the snow in England.

Today I have a question for you. Are you using your tongue to give life or to kill?

Proverbs 18: 21

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue. With our tongues, we can give life and we can kill. When we say ‘I wish I was dead’ We have committed suicide. Can dead people walk? Can they prosper? The favourite among many these days is “you’ve killed me” are you sure you want to be dead? “Dead”…. You’re proclaiming yourself dead. When others are moving forward in life, you remain in one place, why? Because you are in the grave.

Imagine how many people are walking around yet spirituality, they are dead.

The spiritual life is more real than the physical life…. Don’t become a murderer. How are you using your tongue?

Others have killed their husbands. Others have turned their husbands into dogs. Some have cursed friends and family… What comes out of the mouth is very real. Words are spirit and life. What are you saying over your marriage? Your finances? Your job?

“I wish I did not come to work” “I wish I don’t have to come to work them I can sleep the whole day” Would you really be happy if you are out of a job?

My dear, don’t be your own enemy of progress. Don’t blame the devil when you are your own enemy. Don’t look for witches, yet the only witch in your life is you.

Think positive, stay positive and speak positive I’m not talking about diseases…. I’m saying don’t have a negative mentality over your life. Confess positive things over your life. Give life to your marriage, your children and your husband…. Don’t keep saying, “he will never change, coz then he really won’t ever change.”

To kill or not to kill, the power is yours. Whatever you choose, be ready for the consequences.

Stay blessed.
