“The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit” (Proverbs 18:21). In her book Me and My Big Mouth, Joyce Meyer lays out eye opening precepts that bring this verse to life in a new way. Although the Bible clearly states that the tongue is a little part of the body which should be taken very seriously, it is only too easy to overlook this sage counsel. Enter Me and My Big Mouth. Meyer shares how her personal life and ministry were transformed after she cultivated a habit of intentionally speaking God’s word over all that pertained to her and her family. She even shares some of her life changing Word declarations to illustrate her points. I first picked up the book on a friend’s recommendation, and now wholeheartedly encourage you to do the same. And while you’re at it, draft some Word declarations of your own for 2020 and beyond. May you experience God’s power in a new way as you do so!
