“I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”
This verse is a eye opener for me. I realize I need to focus on what comes out out of my mouth. Everything that has already been said is said but I can from this moment moving forward make an effort to make sure I think before I speak.
In the past I have regretted a lot of things I have said and I know it is done but I will have to give an account. I will call on the power of the grace Jesus gives us and ask for forgiveness and moving ahead I will pay close attention to way I say.
I will keep these verses on my heart today:
If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.
I ask that I be given wisdom to bridle my tongue and think before I say anything. Let me not be a hypocrite.
Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
My prayer is that I keep my spirit focused on you at all times and call on you when tempted to speak the wrong words.
Proverbs 12:18 – There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.
I pray that I have wisdom from God.
All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
Dear father I will try my best in this area knowing that this is probably one of the hardest spiritual disciplines given in the bible.
Today I will focus on the good things and make a conscious effort to build up others and do the best I can with my thoughts and words.
