Today’s Reading:

Psalm 39:1-13

" I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me." (v. 1)


The Mouth is a very important part of our body. The Mouth can bless, it can curse. Our mouth can build, it can make alive, it can kill. With our mouth, we can enter into bondage. Many people have entered into bondage by the words of their mouth, either consciously or unconsciously. Many have suffered because of this carelessness. Examples abound in the Bible. The children of Israel on several occasions belittled themselves with their spoken words before the enemies and God Almighty said it will happen to them as they had spoken. What comes out of our Mouth is very important. What are the words that come out of your mouth whenever you are faced with challenges or in a tight situation? Hannah, the mother of Samuel in 1Sam. 1:1-20, did not confess negatively even despite provocation from her mate Peninnah v6, and the Prophet Eli v14.

Some people will say "l cannot but speak what I have seen” and has put themselves into trouble. Even what they don't see, they still talk about. The Bible enjoins us, not to let arrogance come out of your mouth: for the Lord is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed. (1Samuel 2:3). It's important to note that our words shall be judged on the last day, Yes, we shall account for every word, every utterance , every loose word.

We therefore need to guard our Mouth. The Bible says, He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction. Let us learn how to speak positively about and for ourselves, family, nation and the Body of Christ. We can do this through the help of the Holy Spirit. However, if you don't have Jesus, the Holy Spirit cannot help you. Accept Jesus today and let Him take control of your life.

God bless.
