The first thing that God is trying to tell all of us is that we have a certain amount of "power" in our tongues. Our tongue is referring to the verbal words that we speak out of our mouths to other people.

When God is using the word "power," He is telling us that every single one of us has a certain amount of power residing in our mouth and in our tongues with the words that we can release to other people.

And with this kind of power residing in our ability to release spoken words to other people - God then tells us what can happen with this kind of power. This power can either be used to bring life or death to the person that we are speaking to. Think of the responsibility and ramifications of this revelation - that our spoken words to other people can either bring them life or bring them death!

You can either choose to learn how to speak and release positive words of love, encouragement and edification to other people in your own personal dealings with them, or you can choose to release negative words of condemnation, criticism, coldness and harshness. The choice is yours!
