Master of the Powers of the Mouth

Master of the Powers of the Mouth

Scripture: Job 41:19 (NASB)

“Out of his mouth go burning torches, Sparks of fire leap forth.

Snakes are wise because they use their mouths as weapons to fight, to win and to dominate their enemies. A minister will be wise when he uses his mouth as a weapon to fight, to win and to dominate in the Spirit.

The mouth of a snake is an amazing weapon that it uses very successfully. Snakes do not chew their food. Their teeth are good for catching and holding prey, but not suitable for chewing. They have a very flexible lower jaw, the two halves of which are not rigidly attached. They also have numerous other joints in their skull, allowing them to open their mouths wide enough to swallow their prey whole. Snakes are therefore able to swallow their prey whole even if it is larger in diameter than the snake itself. This kind of mouth combined with the venom we have spoken about makes a snake an awesome predator.

Every minister has been given some power in the mouth. Even our salvation comes to us when we open our mouth and confess what we believe with our hearts. Romans 10:9-10- “(that is, the word of faith that we preach), 9for, if you confess* with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10For one believes with the heart and so is justified, and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved.”

To be wise as a serpent, you must use the gift and the grace God has given you. You must develop the power of the mouth. You are snared with the words of your mouth, and you are taken with the words of your mouth. Proverbs 6:2

Some people are able to use their mouths as weapons more successfully than others. You can hear it in their preaching, you can hear it in their confessions, you can hear it in their counselling, and you can hear it in their teaching. Become a strong proclaimer and confessor of the Word and you will be as wise as the serpent.

Let’s conclude with seven ways you can use the power in your mouth.

Seven Ways You Can Use the Power in Your Mouth

1- Develop your ability to speak forth positive confessions about your life and the ministry.

“After all, Jesus said: “Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him” (Mark 11:22–23”)

2- Develop your ability to preach.

“For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. (1 Corinthian 1:21)”

3- Develop your ability to teach.

“And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs. Ecclesiastes 12:9”

4- Develop positive proclamations over your congregation.

“The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. Proverbs 18:21”

5- Develop your ability to counsel and advise people.

“With whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship at the house of God, as we walked about among the worshipers.”

6- Develop your ability to bargain with men and to persuade them.

“Since, then, we know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to persuade others. What we are is plain to God, and I hope it is also plain to your conscience.” 2 Corinthians 5:11

7- Develop your ability to create and invent with your mouth.

“By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.” Hebrews 11:3

We shall continue tomorrow as we learn why serpents are masters at overcoming handicaps….
