“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit” Proverbs 18:21.

A friend of mine recently was hospitalized due to a heart condition during Christmas time. He is back to work and made a remark when he met me on the first day of work, “It is too early to leave my wife.” I think it is the same with everyone who reads this blog. The Lord has put us here for a specific purpose, at this specific time to run the race to spread the Word of God and for a mighty and a supernatural harvest of souls for the Kingdom of God. See what the Lord says in Ezekiel 18:32 “For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,” says the Lord God. “Therefore turn and live!” God wants you to live life to the fullest to fulfill His plans on earth. Although death was at the doorstep, King Hezekiah refused the prophecy by Prophet Isaiah which we read in Isaiah 38:2. King Hezekiah prayed to the Lord in verse 3 which turned the Lord’s heart and in turn he earned a bonus of fifteen years to his life (Isaiah 38:5).

A believer filled with the anointing and the fire of the Lord and who knows his Lord personally will not heed to the outlook of the world but will reject it. Likewise, I told my friend that medical science might say that you are going to die but you are to say to yourself “I will not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord” Psalm 118:17. The Lord has given us the authority on our tongue and we need to exercise it. In a negative situation do not stand there perplexed rather use your authority. In a river, the dead fish flows according to the flow of the river. But the live ones will swim against the flowing current of the river. That is what we ought to do. If you are in a critical situation right now surrounded by the worldly people saying worldly things, reject those words and keep saying this verse in faith and you will live. Believe me, I know of several people who are still alive because of prayer.

In Luke 7:2 we read how God brought back to life the Centurion’s servant by a word of faith from the Centurion. Jesus himself was astonished by his “great faith.” In Luke 7:11 the Lord had compassion on the widow who lost his son and said, “Young man, I say to you, arise.”

Remember, God has great plans for you. Do not listen to the world because the world cannot believe and understand the supernatural ways of the Lord. It is just for you and me. The word says in John 11:40 Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?”

Be Blessed !
