Day 355| December 20, 2020 | Apostle Gideon C Boateng


Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires. Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles! And the tongue is a fire, a world of INIQUITY

James 3:4-6

The Bible says very striking things about the tongue and what is said in the epistle of James is not different. The Apostle said “The tongue is a fire”. In Proverbs the Bible said you can’t mishandle fire and not be burnt. Unfortunately many have mishandled the fire of the tongue. Only God knows the extent of damage done by the fire of the human tongue.

In our opening verse, the tongue is likened to that spark of fire that burns a whole farm or mansion down to ashes. It has wasted a life times investment, destroyed children and collapsed ministries. It has destroyed relationships and families. There is unprecedented power in the tongue and all of God’s children must learn to harness it for their good. Never say the problems you face because you establish them when you say them, rather declare what you want to see and have the problems give way by the power of your tongue.

If there’s something to watch, it is your tongue. Your tongue is the small rudder of the ship that directs your life where it should go. If we want to know where you are going next, we will find it in your mouth. What you say concerning your life is the sure prophecy of your life.

Don’t speak yourself down no matter the situation because it will make it worse. Also, refuse to speak negativity in the name of jokes because the realm of the supernatural where the tongue works doesn’t recognize jokes.



I harness the power of my tongue to build and not to destroy. I change situations with my tongue by speaking them out of my way. Negative and foul words are not found in my dictionary and never found in y mouth
