DAY 3: HOUR OF VISITATION – SECOND TEACHING
Bible Text: Luke 21:15
The mouth, the tongue and words play very critical roles in the life and destiny of every child of God.
They make the difference between dominating and being dominated.
Your confession is the prescription for your destination.
Your mouth is not just a body part, it’s a gift from God for your triumph in life.
Your mouth is to communicate the wisdom of God.
The power to live or die is rooted in your tongue.
Your mouth is a tool for the communication of your decision. – Prov.18:21
The tongue of the wise brings good health and the tongue of the foolish brings ill health – Prov. 12:18
Your liberty or captivity in life is at the mercy of your words.
Whatever comes out of your mouth per time will put what is necessary in your hands.
Nothing is against you if your mouth is not against you.
