God created man in His own Image and in His Likeness. God's Word is His will for man. When I say "man", I mean mankind. Man was created in the Image of God. Man's words ... your words ... should be your will toward God. You really shouldn't speak anything you don't desire to come to pass or that isn't your will.
You may have heard someone say, "What you don't know won't hurt you." Well, the truth is, what you don't know may be what is killing you. Proverbs 18:21 says, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof."
God's Word conceived in the heart, then formed with the tongue and spoken our of the mouth becomes a spiritual force releasing the ability of God. These are words you conceive in the human spirit, and then form them with your tongue. Have you ever noticed that your words, or syllables, are separated by the tongue when you speak?
