Sermon Notes

Creative Power of Communication and your tongue. God has given us such a powerful gift and tool to unlock and release the power of creative or to create with our tongue. God created everything that we see and everything that we are by speaking creative words. You and I are created in our Gods Image so we have the same creative power.

Many people do not understand how to access this creative power so we with undisciplined speaking we release so much destructive words releasing them to create lack, failure, sickness, hopelessness, hate, bitterness, depression, anger and animosity, etc……
Remember last week the quote: Thinking becomes your words you speak which become your actions/behavior which then becomes your habits, which becomes your character and then your Destiny/Life.

Your thoughts always come out your mouth. This is the creative process for creating. Creating a life, success or failure, sickness or health, joy or bitterness, wealth or poverty, blessed or cursed.

Last week we seen the scripture that says Guard your thoughts because they become your life.

Thinking is inside but what you think, feel on the inside gets released to the creative world outside of you by our tongue.

Story:
Two people meet at an art show.
Young lady asks the old man, “What do you do?”
His reply was, “I am an artist.”
She got so excited and said, “I have never met a real live artist. I always wanted a personal portrait done, could you do that?”
“Oh sure, that is my specialty.” he said.
She said, “That’s great, I do have one special request, I want the painting done in the nude.”
The old artist said to her, “I’ll have to think about that and get back to you.”
A few days later he called the young lady and said, “I am willing to do the painting as you requested but i have one stipulation. I want to leave my socks on. I need somewhere to put my paintbrushes.”

Two people talking but they do not understand each other. Negative communication, ineffective communication.

Anthony Robins said, “The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives.”

So many misunderstandings, divisions and ruining of relationships over words spoken and because the negative communications.

Communicate: to get someone to understand your thoughts or feelings, the imparting or interchange of thoughts, opinions, or information by speech, writing, or signs.
Commune means to share and receive.
Communion intimate relationship, an act or instance of sharing.

Communication is the process we use to speak to someone for them to understand us and our thoughts and feelings, opinions, etc. The tongue is the gun and our words are the bullets.
I was stationed on an aircraft carrier and we would launch jets off the deck. That carrier was our tongue and we would launch those jets or our words which became our communication.
The Bible compares the tongue with a ruder on a boat. So small but it directs the boat where it wants to go. Your thinking starts the journey, but your words release the power to move you and move others. This can be a great thing or not so great.

“A man’s stomach will be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; He will be satisfied with the consequence of his words. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it and indulge it will eat its fruit and bear the consequences of their words.”
PROVERBS 18:20-21

When I read this it hit me as supernatural will bring into your natural world. You will be fed your life with what you speak. You can be so filled with abundance in your life, business, health, family, God, so satisfied in the natural side of life. Abundance and super blessings but it comes by what you think and speak. Speaking is the thoughts you release to God and the Universe.

The quality of home, spiritual, financial, relationships, emotional, physical, all whatever level is based on what you say, what you speak, what you release to the Heavenly.
Our words will create consequences.
Consequences means: something that happens as a result of a particular action or set of conditions, something produced by a cause or following from a condition.

We produce things when we speak. Pastor Larry Huck would yell at me and say, “everything you say is a prayer.” Prayer is releasing words, request to God.

If the Bible is correct which it is, it says, “Life and death are in the power of the tongue.”

LIFE means in the Hebrew: to live, to revive, keep alive, recover, repair, restore, be whole.

DEATH means in the Hebrew:to kill, to die, destroy, slay.


The power to live, to revive, keep alive recover repair restore, be whole is in your tongue. The power to kill, to die, to destroy, to slay is in your tongue.

POWER means an open hand, indicating power, means, direction. 


“Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.”
Proverbs 18:21 MSG

We are releasing poison or fruit giving life or killing our futures, families, health, spirits, our business and resources, etc.

We must choose because you and I ARE LIVING AND will live what we produce by our speaking. Unforgivness, bitterness, anger, jealousy, fearful, envy, etc all start as a thought but is released by our speaking.
How many relationships have been destroyed because of the destructive words.

Used to say sticks and stones can break your bones but words can never hurt me. That is a lie. You can heal from broken bones but the damage that can be caused by hurtful bitter words cut to the core of our being.

I know families that do not speak or get together because of words.

Mark Twain put it this way, “The difference between the right word and almost right word is the difference between lightning and the lightning bug.”

“The one who guards his mouth [thinking before he speaks] protects his life; The one who opens his lips wide [and chatters without thinking] comes to ruin.”

PROVERBS 13:3 AMP

THINKING BEFORE HE SPEAKS PROTECTS HIS LIFE.

“Those who control their tongue will have a long life; opening your mouth can ruin everything.”
PROVERBS 13:3 NLT

“He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.”
PROVERBS 13:3 KJV

Guards, control, keepeth his mouth. Think before you speak.

PROTECTS HIS LIFE. LONG LIFE. NO THINKING, RUINS YOUR LIFE.

“A soothing tongue [speaking words that build up and encourage] is a tree of life, But a perversive tongue [speaking words that overwhelm and depress] crushes the spirit.”
PROVERBS 15:4 AMP

How and what you say has the ability to build up and encourage others. God compares to a Tree of Life.
The negative destructive words overwhelm and depress crushes the spirit.

Quote: A sharp tongue and a brilliant mind are never found in the same skull.

“He who guards his mouth and his tongue Guards himself from troubles.”
PROVERBS 21:23 AMP

“When there are many words, transgression and offense are unavoidable, But he who controls his lips and keeps thoughtful silence is wise.”

PROVERBS 10:19 AMP


“Do not let unwholesome [foul, profane, worthless, vulgar] words ever come out of your mouth, but only such speech as is good for building up others, according to the need and the occasion, so that it will be a blessing to those who hear [you speak].”

EPHESIANS 4:29 AMP

Our words really should be and our speech for good for building others up and being a blessings.
