Offering message: Prov. 3:5-9Are you honoring God with your first-fruits and possessions? Gene English spoke about listening to the voice of silence from God in relation to his trip to Namibia, Africa. Pastor Dale preached on the power of the tongue from James 3:2-8, Prov. 18:20-21, Prov. 6:2, Mark 11:23-24, Prov. 12:13-14, and Isaiah 54:17. If you can control your tongue, you can control your whole body and being. The worst the conditions, the smaller you have to start, just like starting a fire with the smallest and driest wood. Your words are kindling to the fire you’re trying to build. The fire you build can bring life or destruction. Negative words and talking about your problems will burn your life up. Death and life are in the power of the tongue. You can be snared (tricked and trapped) by your words. Talk to your problems and tell them to be removed. Believe what you say, and you will have what you say. Use your words to work for you. Weed out the negative words! Rise up and condemn what comes against you.
