Sanctify them by truth; your word is truth (John 17:17).
Do you know your mouth is powerful? Yes, it is. Therefore, be careful which words you allow to escape your lips because Proverbs 18:21 states, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”
You can either speak the truth of God’s Word, or you can choose to speak poisonous words that will destroy everything around you. Instead of confessing that you are living in poverty, you should confess, “I’m taking steps that will lead me to my financial blessings.” We have to make a decision not to confess what we see but to confess the faith we stand upon, for we walk by faith and not by sight. We speak only God's truth.
Isaiah 6:1-10 explains that Isaiah has such a profound encounter with the Lord. During that incident, the prophet cries out, “It’s all over! I am doomed, for I am a sinful man. I have filthy lips, and I live among a people with filthy lips. Yet I have seen the King, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.” Then a seraphim touches his lips with a burning coal and says, “Your sins are forgiven.” In the end, Isaiah volunteers to go as a messenger to the people.
Since Isaiah lips (words) became aligned with the Word of God, Isaiah was equipped to speak the truth (also see John 17:17). Let’s allow God to touch our lips with burning coals, which is symbolic, so we too can Speak Truth.
