When I was a kid, my mom used to repeat the old adage, “If you don’t have anything good to say, don’t say anything at all.”

Wise words. There is so much power in what we say. The words we use have the ability to either build up or tear down.

Because of the lunatic fringe of “prosperity gospel” preachers, the phrase “word of faith” is a theological lightning rod. Unfortunately, many preachers have chosen to ignore the phrase and concept altogether.

Since “word of faith” is a biblical phrase (Romans 10:8), we don’t have the option of ignoring it.

Today’s message looks at what the Scripture says about our speech, our words, and the power of our faith confession.
