Have you ever heard something you said only to regret saying that very thing that was said?
I know I sure have! If you haven’t then that is definitley a blessing!
My Pastor Juanita Gibbs has been teaching me that my words either good or bad, faithful or doubtful create my life. Words have power she says!
She backs it all up with scripture.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.
Proverbs 18:21 NASB
That has been so my case! I have been eating the fruit of so much negativity, doubt, worry, fear, anxiety that my soul had come to love it.
When the spirit living within was like please reject the bad fruit and try the new fruit God by his spirit and the fruits of His spirit have provided. So, I could not only nourish my spirit man but my soul man the more I reject the bad fruit and choose the good fruit.
I said, “I will guard my ways That I may not sin with my tongue; I will guard my mouth as with a muzzle While the wicked are in my presence.”
Psalms 39:1 NASB
I have been graced by God to take dominion over my tongue and tame it. His word proclaims that from the abundace of the heart the mouth speaks. My words reveal my heart!
I have to begin to catch the thoughts before the set into my heart and take root as to what words flow from my lips. I can then muzzle my tongue even now after those things have taken root and filter them as to does my words line up with Gods word or no?
If they do not I need to refuse to say them and speak only truth! Our words have power, the same power of the creator of us that spoke this world into exsistance we can speak our world into exsistance. Guard our hearts and mouths to produce the God kind of life you want to see.
