Daily Read – Leviticus 22:17-23:44; Mark 9:30-10:12; Psalm 44:1-8; Proverbs 10:19
In the multitude of words sin is not lacking,
But he who restrains his lips is wise.
My Son said only what He heard Me say. If all My children could adhere to this, the world would be a different place. The atmosphere around My people would be sweet as honey attracting those who need to taste and see that I am good. Wisdom and revelation would be the food set on the banqueting tables in your temple.
Instead, so many empty words fall to the ground accomplishing nothing in the process. So much talk, but little fruit. Even in times of prayer, there are words uttered that flow from the soul rather than the spirit. When led by My Spirit, your prayers avail much!
The more words you speak, the more opportunity the enemy has to bring sin into the situation. He loves words because he knows most originate from the unsanctified soul, rather than from the redeemed spirit. He continuously uses your words against you, twisting them to fit into his agenda.
However, he cannot touch words birthed from the Spirit because they are sealed in the blood of Christ accomplishing much for My Kingdom.
Temptation lurks behind your daily circumstances and tries luring you into conversations that cause your mouth to sin. As an act of your will, choose to restrain your lips from giving into the sin. Ask My Spirit to place a guard over your mouth to keep you from seeding the atmosphere with destruction.
In contrast, choose your words wisely and seed your atmosphere with life, health, and prosperity. Your entire life will change course taking you in a brand new direction in My Spirit.
What I say means something and....
What you say also means something!
Lord Jesus, there is the saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. If people see You when they look at me, little needs to be said! I pray that I decrease and You increase that others will see and hear You and not me. I ask You to remind me each time I step over the line into wordiness. I want to be a wise steward of my words using them as directed by You. I want my words to accomplish what You want them to accomplish, rather than falling to the ground empty and void of power. My words are powerful and can either curse or bless. I choose to bless!
