The tongue is a power part of the body. In terms of size that can be seen, the size of the tongue is relatively small. The weight of tongue in the male is averagely 70 grams while in the female is about 60 grams. However, the tongue has potential to do great and mighty things. It has a deep connection with the human heart. That is to say, beyond physical anatomy of the tongue, there is more about the spiritual effect of the tongue. As the spirit world supersede the physical, so is the spiritual effect of tongue goes beyond the physical structure of it.Yes, there is power in the tongue, your tongue is so powerful that it can improve or destroy your entire life. A lot of people ended their life in the prison yard because of the way they use their tongue, despite the fact that they are innocent. Many people passed to the great beyond untimely, because of the use of the tongue. Employment seekers fail interview because of the way they use their tongue. The tongue is so powerful that it can destroy a whole nation; it can cause war in between two countries.According to the book of Ephesians. 4:29: Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen: The tongue has the capacity to determine what you become and you will not. God, the Almighty Creator of all things, understood the potent weapon called tongue this by placing tongue in a "double jail": the lips and the teeth. The only way the tongue exhibit its potency is through spoken word. Have you ever wondered why God kept tongue in such prison? I feel it simply because He wants the individual to be responsible for the use of his or her tongue. Lest one say, I never knew when I said such. Therefore, every man is responsible for letting the tongue out of "the double prisons."When you take time to look at the story of creation, the world we see and all the beautiful things that are in it were created by the spoken word of the Almighty. Hence, you will understand the power given to the instrument or tool through which words are spoken. As I have stated earlier, the tongue is deeply connected to the human heart. Your tongue is just a faithful representative of your heart. Your tongue is "the painter" which gives the picture of the state of your heart. Where you are and where you will reach in life are both functions of how you use your tongue.Have you ever desired to change your status? Perhaps you have been wondering how you can get out of that predicament, and you are wondering where to start. You need not look far, start by watching the use of your tongue. Your status is as good as the way you use your tongue.Of course, I admit that it's difficult for a natural man to put in check the use of the tongue. This is due to his state of heart. Be that as it may, if you will ever see any improvement or advancement, it is high time you started changing your vocabularies. Form negativity to positive words. From the story of woes to good news. From murmuring to giving thanks, from cursing to blessing.Though, many people through ignorance carelessly use this lethal weapon and thereby limit themselves and destiny of people around them. This book seeks to reveal to you the potency force behind the use of tongue as well as how you can begin to use this faithful servant to create the world you desire.

The book is about how one can utilize the forces of the covenant to fulfill ones destiny. Destiny begins with a dream, vision or purpose. You are created in the image of God, and because God gives dreams you can develop dreams. Whether you call dream for your life "vision, goal or purpose", it does not really matter. You start laying hold of your destiny by dreaming. There are different kinds of dreams. There are dreams given sovereignly by God, such as the one Joseph had. There are also dreams that you have to develop yourself. Your dreams will determine your future and your ultimate destiny. Dreams are the seeds of your future. Where you are today is the result of the dreams you had in the past and where you will be tomorrow is determined by your dream today. "Delight thyself in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart." Psalm 37:4 When the Lord is your delight, He will give you the dreams of your heart. A dream is a divine revelation of the plan and purpose of God for your Life. When you commit your dreams unto God. He will bring it to pass. What dream do you have? Is it a dream of helping people? What about a dream of becoming a missionary in other countries of the world. What about a dream of having a prosperous business that you can travel around and sharing the gospel with people. God wants to give you the desire of your heart, but you have to develop those desires. A desire of the heart is real and life changing. It will influence and help other people. You need to have a dream in order to succeed in life. Without dream you are bound for failure. God wants you to have a positive dream, a positive life and a successful career or ministry. Your dream must be from the word of God. Joseph’s destiny was shaped by his dream. I believe your own destiny is being shaped right now as you are getting ready to dream.
