Tongue for the Lord
Verse
Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; Keep watch over the door of my
lips. Psalm 141:3

Thought
Tongue carelessly lashed out can destroy our spiritual life. Many of
us try to be careful and speak only things that bring glory to God and
words that edify others. But at times we speak and sin. As the word
says in multitude of words there is no lack of sin. Who can control
his tongue? David who used his mouth most to worship God, in these
verses is asking the Lord to set a guard on his mouth. Surrender your
mouth to God, He not only puts the right word in your mouth but He
will stop your words when you are going to speak wrong things,
Surrender! Ezekiel said,” When I did not speak your words my tongue
stuck to the roof of my mouth”. Jeremiah said,” When I did not speak
your words it was like fire in my bones”. Speak abundantly, the word
of God, no careless talks, and no more coarse talks.

First century believers used to say, angels in heaven used to wait for
Barnabas to pray (source ‘Search For 12 Apostles’ – book). Is heaven
waiting for you to speak? Every word what you speak should release the
power of heaven. Lord Jesus said, “Speak to the mountain”. The Word
says, “Tongue has the power of life and death”. Commit your mouth to
the Lord. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks; if your
heart is for Jesus then you will speak His words. John in his gospel
said, Word became flesh; Word of God is Jesus, so release Jesus into
every situation by your words.

Prayer
Lord, sorry for using my mouth for my selfishness, Lord please set a
guard on my mouth. Let me speak words that will only bring glory to
God. Amen.
