by | Mar 10, 2022 | The Family Menu, Tongue

“Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, Thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.”

(‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭6:2‬ ‭KJV‬)

Dearly beloved and friends,Words are powerful and can build up or destroy completely. The tongue though small can ignite a war that can consume friendships, families, ministries and even nations. Please put a watch on your tongue. The confession of your mouth determines the direction of your destiny.

  • “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: And they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” (Proverbs‬ ‭18:21‬ KJV).
  • “The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: But the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.” (Proverbs‬ ‭15:2 KJV).
  • “Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; Like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.” (Psalm‬ ‭52:2‬ KJV).

Examples — Wrong use of the tongue:

  • False and wicked friends: The deceitfully luring the innocent into evil devices with their “sweet tongues” (See Proverbs 1:10-15).
  • Delilah: She used enticing words to betray and to destroy Samson’s destiny (See Judges 16:6-8).
  • False witnesses: They told lies as false witnesses to ensure Jesus was condemned to death (See Matthew 26:60).
  • An Amalekite: Who told lies to win Favor of David but ended being killed (See 2 Samuel 1:16).
  • YOU: Commune with your heart that your mouth will not lead you astray

What to do — Correct use of the tongue:

  1. Speak pleasant words: ”Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, Sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.” (Proverbs‬ ‭16:24‬ KJV).
  2. Season your words with salt: “Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.” (Colossians‬ ‭4:6‬ KJV).

Prayer Points:In Jesus name:

  1. Father, please help me put a watch over my lips,and deliver me.
  2. Father, please don’t let me destroy my destiny by the word of my mouth.
  3. Father,please put a coal of fire on my tongue and purify all the fruits of my lips.
