There are so many scriptures in the Bible that tell us to “say.” But many times we read through them, we go quickly past them.
I don’t think we realize how important our words are. I don’t think we realize that we condemn ourselves with our words. When we say mean things about people behind their backs, we condemn ourselves. When we curse people because they have offended us, we condemn ourselves.

A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled. Death and life arein the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. (Proverbs 18:20-21)
On the other hand, when we use our words to focus on God’s word and God’s truth. When we say what he says we are, and agree to who he says we are. When we bless those who offend us, and use our words to say only the kinds of words that God would say, then can we truly dwell in all of God’s blessings.
I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. (Psalm 91:2-3).
God has promised his protection, his healing, his peace, his everything…all we have to do is believe what he said, and say what he said, and everything will have to flee.
And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. (Mark 11:22-23)
