CALLED FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS
What Is Coming Out Of Your Mouth?
God brought something to my attention glaringly this week.
I heard a negative confession out of the mouth of a believer
and they were confessing such negative words that it was
obvious to me that the Lord wanted me to speak about it!
Immediately a scripture came to mind. Death and life are in
the power of the tongue! If we are honest we have all put our
foot in our mouth at one time or the other and had to repent
after the words were out! Did that really come out of my mouth?
God is speaking and saying that, He is wanting to clean up
the mouths of His children! Out of the abundance of the heart
the mouth speaks. Ouch!!! We speak and our words are creative.
As soon as the Lord hears our words they are written down. One
day we will give an account to Him for every word we utter.
Ouch!!! The bible says so! How do we get hold of our mouth so
that it glorify's the Lord.
Daily we need to be filled with His Spirit. That infilling you got
ten years ago will not work for you. A fresh infilling will bring
forth living water, pure and crystal clean and His Words flowing
with it. Glory to God. In the beginning God spoke and the world
was created. There is such power in the spoken word that this is
one reason why the Lord wants you to use wisdom. Declaring His
Word and praying His word out loud will bring victory. His word
is life and you need His life flowing out of you to others.
The enemy cannot read your mind but observes all that you say
and do. Once he hears it he knows how to try and bring defeat
into your life. We are snared by the words of our mouth. We
often teach children to put mind in gear before opening their
mouth and speaking. We do need to think before we speak. One
thing I remember about my Dad was that he was slow to speak.
He thought before he spoke and anyone who had a conversation
with him could have gotten a little impatient and jumped in
with their words before he was done, if they did not have the
fruit of patience in their life. He was a man of wisdom. It
was not long in his presence before one knew they were talking
to a wise man.
God hears prayers that are from His Spirit so let's line our
mouth up with the Word today.We are told that if we ask for
wisdom without doubting that the Lord will give it to us. Have
you prayed for wisdom in all you do and say today? Open your
mouth with wisdom and let kind words flow from sanctified lips.
It will bring grace to those that hear you. God wants you to
be a blessing to others! What you say does affect them. You
have the power of God in you to bring about change in those
around you by your speech. Determine today to be slow to speak
and quick to hear His Word. God will then use you as a vessel
fit for the Masters service. Death and life are in the power
of the tongue. Choose life today.
