“With it (the tongue) we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so.” — James 3:9,10

BLESS OR CURSE

God has ordained speech to carry spiritual power that either creates or destroys. God used speech to create the heavens and earth. When we speak with our mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in our heart God raised Him from the dead, we are saved. (Rom 10:9) Those words, and the accompanying belief, deliver us out of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of God.

The awesome power of speech is the ability of our tongue to speak blessing or speak cursing. Blessing means more than praise, it is the flow of life. When God’s people speak blessing, God’s life-flow is released.

Words of cursing are not just profanity or blasphemy, but they can be negative or hateful words. When these words are spoken, they bring doubt, discouragement, defeat, and death. Contrarily, words of blessing bring faith, love, life, hope, peace and much more.
