I believe that this means as the Bible says you shall have whatsoever you sayeth. If you speak sickness and disease that is what you will have. Words like my head is killing me, denotes death. Word like by his stripes I am healed of all disease and afflictions brings life and health.

I feel it means speak up. When god speaks within in US.. we must then speak out. Example being knowing right from wrong and not only choosing right for yourself, but also guiding others to do right as well, whereas they might not if you don 't use the power of the tongue.

I think tongue release what comes from the mind, Let us fill our minds with Word of God, bear in mind that Word of God is GOOD NEWS. It means your tongue will release good as it had been in our mind, Filling our minds with something different to the Word it won 't help, good news produce good things like good speech, good question, good respond and others , Amen.
