To control your tongue is to control your life

It is a well known fact that what you say is who you are; the power of life and death rest on the tongue. That is the reason why you should be mindful of the kind of words and prophesies that comes out from your mouth. The world we live in was once void. No life existed on this world before, but it takes the power of the tongue from God to say let there be and there was. He has also given us dominion over the earth and said whatever we bind here on earth shall be bind in haven and whatever we loosen here on earth will be loosened in haven. The onus now lies on you to choose your words wisely and speak greatness and possibilities to your life.

Let me not bug you much with my bible doctrines because I don’t know what you believe and worship. But the fact still remain that the tongue is a very powerful tool in our life which should not be used carelessly. If you don’t know what to say in any given situation just be silent and calm rather than to say negative things that can affect your life and destiny.  Because the less you say, the less risk you run of saying something foolish and dangerous.

In 1825, a new Czar, Nicholas 1, ascended the throne of Russia. A rebellion immediately broke out, led by liberals demanding that the country modernize its industries and civil structures to catch up with the rest of Europe. To quash the rebellion (December uprising) Nicholas 1 sentenced one of rebel leaders, Kondraty Ryleyev to death. On the day of his execution Ryleyev stood on the gallows, the noose around his neck. The trapdoor opened – but as Ryleyev dangled, the rope broke, dashing him to the ground.

At that time, events like this were considered signs of providence or heavenly will, and a man saved from execution this way was usually pardoned. But when Ryleyev  got up  to his feet, bruised and dirtied but believing his neck has been saved, he called out to the crowd  ‘’ you see, in Russia they don’t even know how to do anything properly, not even how to make rope.’’

A messenger quickly went to the Winter Palace with news of the failed hanging.

Vexed by this disappointment Nicholas 1 nevertheless began to sign the pardon, but then  : ‘’did Ryleyev say anything after the miracle? Czar asked the messenger, ‘sire’ the messenger replied, ‘’ he said that in Russia they don’t even know how to make rope’’.

In that case said the czar ‘’ let us prove the contrary’’ and he tore up the pardon. The next day Rylevev was hanged again. This time the rope did not break. Because of the careless use of his tongue.

No matter the circumstances you might be facing, I would not pretend it is easy to handle. But always speak life to your future and every circumstance even when it seems all hope is lost. You will begin to see a total turn around in your life
