Imagine a person with a gun in his hands wailing because a lion is coming towards him to kill him! Pathetic, right? But this is what many Christians do when the enemy is oppressing them. We have the weapon of warfare, the power of the tongue but we do not consider it powerful enough to deliver us. The truth is that you can defeat the devil, mountains and stronghold anytime, anywhere with your tongue.
"For I have given you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist" Luke 21:15 (KJV). Here Jesus endorses the power of the tongue. No matter what the enemy may be telling or showing you, when you open your mouth and declare God's word against it, you will overcome.
It may look and sound so simple but it is very powerful. We exercise our dominion with our words. Words declared in faith are able to pull down mountains and strongholds. The enemy is always talking to us through our thoughts and what we see and hear. We must learn to answer back immediately with spoken words.
Now let's look at another scripture,
Mark 11:23 says, " For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be though 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 whatsoever he saith." (KJV)
These mountains which include sickness, poverty, failure, etc, have ears and can hear your commands. As soon as they hear you, they shall obey you and fade away. Psalms 18:44-45. They are still there because you have said nothing! Open your mouth wide and God will fill it. Psalm 81:10
In spiritual warfare, our weapons of warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of stronghold. 2 Corinthians 10:4. So, use the power of the tongue to fight and possess what God has given you. Until you take your stand and exercise your authority the devil will still have his way.
Be consistent and persistent in declaring God's words against that challenge. Do not give up! When you do the devil wins but when you don't he will leave you alone. Remember the temptation of Jesus in the wilderness, Luke 4:1-14. Jesus persisted with His declarations and the devil left Him
Now, you have seen that the mouth is not just for eating, it can deliver you from any challenge. Learn to declare God's words concerning your life daily and you will always keep the enemy away. "Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof" Proverbs 18:21 (KJV).
What else can you say about the power of the tongue in pulling down mountains and stronghold?
