Full disclosure - there have been many times where I have voiced my concerns about what the enemy plans to do. I thought that I was just being proactive, realistic, and preparing myself spiritually and emotionally for what might come.
After fasting and prayer, I realized that the enemy was actually using my own tongue to help speak their plans into action. 2 Corinthians 10:4 makes it clear that we are in a spiritual war, not a physical one. Our prayer life and our words matter.
Proverbs 18:21 makes it even more clear… “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”
