“Good morning! This morning on the prayer line we talked about “Taming the tongue” James chapter 3:1-12; Colossians 4:6; Ephesians 4:29; Proverbs 141:3; Psalms 19:14; Matthew15:11.
An Old Cherokee said to his daughter one day “There are two wolves who are always fighting. One is darkness and despair. The other is light and hope. The question is which wolf wins?” What does this have to do with our words? We always have a choice when we speak.
God has given us the incredible freedom to choose our words some words bring darkness and despair and are rooted in fear and some bring light and hope and are rooted in Love. We have words that are never released, and words that should never have been released. We have words that build up, and ones that tear down. I believe that when we speak something out of a place of fear, fear is “manifested” into our environment; that is, fear is spoken into existence.
The same goes with love when we speak life and love these are made manifest. The way that we tame our tongues is by partnering with the Holy Spirit these problems cannot be solved or transformed by mere will power. “The tongue has no bones, but it is strong enough to break a heart. So becareful with your words!”
Today dedicate your heart, mind, and tongue to the Lord, pray for awareness and conscious of your words, surrender your right to complain, ask for forgiveness for any unloving words or attitude and practice speaking words that would Encourage, Comfort, Edify, and Inspire. Choose Wisely”
