Book Description


Fasting. Have you ever thought of fasting "words". Take the challenge, fast complaining, judgment, criticism/sarcasm, and gossip for 40-days. The first half of the book is teaching chapters on what these words really mean. The last half, 40 one day readings on fasting words.

Sample Chapter

Life and death are in the power of the tongue. The words that come out of our mouths heal or hurt. They bring reconciliation or division. By our words men are called into their destiny and the life of the Lord is shared with others. By words dreams are shattered.

You see, Satan is always out to destroy the essential purposes of God. Christ’s vision for us as believers is that we might be one as He and the Father are one. Christ knew our great love for one another would draw unbelievers into the kingdom as they witnessed something their souls yearned for but could not find in the world: unconditional acceptance and love. Satan uses these other kinds of words that come out of our mouths—judgments, criticism, sarcasm, negativity, complaining, and gossip—to keep this purpose of God at bay.

Words of blessing have a remarkable impact. Gentle words of blessing soothe the inner man. They are like cherry limeade with crushed ice on a sweltering summer’s day, refreshing the body and emotions. Words of encouragement bolster the will and activate hope in our lives. Each one of us yearns for motivating words of praise that infuse our self-worth. They stimulate our desire to actualize the unique potential God has placed in each one of us. Sunny, cheery words are protein to the spirit of a child, shaping the course of his or her life at such a tender age and having eternal impact.

Positive words are verbal nutrients that hydrate the entire being; when lacking, God’s purposes are left dormant. Negative words produce verbal toxins that poison the soul. In the wake of negative, critical words, a person’s confidence is destroyed and God’s possibilities are crushed. Yes, spoken words have the power of life and death.
