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 tried 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 maximum 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 words 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 is 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. Word says,
Tongue has the power of life and death. Commit your mouth to the Lord.
Mouth speaks in the abundance of the heart; 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.
