I WROTE, YESTERDAY, ABOUT TALKING TO YOUR "MOUNTAINS". TODAY I WANT TO JUST TALK ABOUT "TALKING". A LOT IS SAID IN THE BIBLE ABOUT THE TONGUE. (JAMES 3:2For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.) WE TEND TO SAY THINGS WITHOUT THINKING AND THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS. WHEN YOU ARE TELLING THAT ILLNESS TO LEAVE, THAT IS A POSITIVE WORD WHICH CAN BRING HEALING BUT HOW MANY TIMES A DAY DO YOU SPEAK NEGATIVE WORDS. YOU SEE A WRECK AND SAY "THAT'S GOING TO BE ME ONE OF THESE DAYS THE WAY I DRIVE". SOMEONE COMES IN WITH THE FLU AND YOU SAY "WELL I GUESS I WILL HAVE THAT BEFORE LONG". SOMEONE HAS A HEART ATTACK AND YOU SAY "THAT RUNS IN MY FAMILY AND I KNOW THAT WILL BE THE WAY I GO". POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE WORDS COMING OUT OF THE SAME MOUTH.
WE SAY THESE THINGS NOT EVEN THINKING THAT THIS IS GIVING THE DEVIL AN OPEN DOOR TO PUT THESE THINGS ON YOU. IF HE CAN MAKE YOU BELIEVE YOU HAVE SOMETHING, I GUARANTEE HE WILL HELP YOU GET IT. HE IS THE DECEIVER, YOU KNOW. SEE WHAT 1ST PETER 3:10 SAYS "For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:" ONE DEFINITION OF GUILE IS DECEIT. YOU ARE DECEIVING YOURSELF WHEN YOU SPEAK THESE THINGS OVER YOU.
THE TONGUE CAN BE THE BEST WEAPON YOU HAVE AGAINST THE DEVIL (JAMES 4:7Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.) IF YOU ARE PRAISING AND PRAYING TO GOD, YOU ARE RESISTING THE DEVIL. IT CAN ALSO BE THE BEST BLESSING YOU HAVE FROM GOD (MATTHEW 21:22And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.) WATCH YOUR WORDS VERY CAREFULLY. THEY ALL MEAN SOMETHING WHETHER IT IS GOOD OR BAD. YOU CAN STOP THE BAD!! JUST REMEMBER THIS AND I THINK IT MIGHT HELP. (MATTHEW 12:36But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.) JUDGEMENT DAY IS COMING AND I WANT TO BE AS READY AS I CAN....HOW ABOUT YOU?
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
