Soul Detox Lesson 3
Lethal Language

Romans 10:9-10
9 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.
10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.

Sticks and Stones

Sticks and stones my bruise your body, but words can scar your soul for life.

Words can Devastate
Psalms 64:3 They sharpen their tongues like swords and aim their bitter words like arrows.

Proverbs 18:21 Wise words satisfy like a good meal; the right words bring satisfaction.

Words have Power

Creative words Create
Destructive words Destroy
Hurtful words Crush
Helpful words Build Up
Toxic words Poison
Soothing words Heal
Faith filled words bring Life
Faithless words bring Death

What if Your Words Materialized?

Both Sides of Your Mouth
Proverbs 12:18 Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing.

Always Arguing?
Proverbs 15:1 A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare.

Take Out the Trash
Don’t Believe Everything You Hear

Proverbs 4:23 Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.

When God calls you, there is no one that can stop you from doing what God wants you to do.
I may be rejected by men, but I’m approved by God

Truth or Trash
Are the words true?
Are they Based in Scripture?
Are they supported by Data over Time?
If words are toxic, reject them!

Catch and Release
If you capture a good thought, Say it!

Build up one another with words
I Corinthians 14:26 When you meet together, one will sing, another will teach, another will tell some special revelation God has given, one will speak in tongues, and another will interpret what is said. But everything that is done must strengthen all of you.

Hebrews 10:24-25 Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.

Build up yourself
Mark 11:23 I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, 'May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,' and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart.
Don’t talk About your mountain, Talk TO IT!

The words we speak must line up with the Bible

What If I Don’t Know WHAT to say?
Jude 20 But you, dear friends, must build each other up in your most holy faith, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit,

When you don’t know what to pray
Romans 8:26 And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don't know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.
