…the things that proceed out of the mouth come from the heart…(Matthew 15:18)
I think it is time for me to do a “heart check!” I believe it is important for us to pay attention to what comes out of our mouths. Our words have power! There is life and death in the tongue! (Proverbs 18:21) It is so easy to just let complaints and words of doubt and criticism flow all during our day. Forgive me, Lord!
The Lord pays attention to what we say (and the enemy does, too)…and we need to pay attention to the words that we allow ourselves to speak!
Dearest Lord, I pray that Your Holy Spirit will be a filter over my mouth. May I say only those things that speak LIFE and FAITH and TRUTH! Help me, Lord, to think before I speak. May I let “no unwholesome word proceed from [my] mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.”(Ephesians 4:29)
May Your words flow through me, Jesus! May I speak from a transformed heart…a heart that beats in time with Yours. Speak through me this day…and all the days that follow. Sanctify and anoint this mouth to speak forth Your Word!!
Thank You, Lord!!
