Your Future is in Your Tongue

Monday, March 01, 2004 • Earl and Wanda Boone • Spiritual Maturity
Why is my life such a mess? Why do people treat me this way? Why are there so many negative things in my life? Could a muzzle be in order:)

Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Heart, Change Your Words, Change Your Life.

 

Psalm 139
3You sift and search out my path and my lying down, and You are acquainted with all my ways.
4For there is not a word in my tongue [still unuttered], but, behold, O Lord, You know it altogether.


THIS SCRIPTURE IS SO IMPORTANT TO OUR SUCCESS. CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT YOU HOLD THE KEYS TO YOUR OWN FUTURE? NOTICE IN VERSE 3, HE SIFTS OUT AND SEARCHES OUR PATH. HE STUDIES AND EXAMINES US FOR OUR OWN GOOD. NO ONE KNOWS US BETTER, LOVES US MORE OR CHEERS US ON LIKE GOD.

 

Matthew 9
3And behold, some of the scribes said to themselves, This man blasphemes [He claims the rights and prerogatives of God]!
4But Jesus, knowing (Seeing) their thoughts, said, Why do you think evil and harbor malice in your hearts?
5For which is easier: to say, Your sins are forgiven and the penalty remitted, or to say, Get up and walk?


JESUS ADDRESSED THEIR THOUGHTS WITH HIS TRUTH. HOW MANY TIMES HAS JESUS TOUCHED OUR THOUGHTS WITH HIS WORD? WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO STOP AND TURN FROM WRONG THINKING AND WRONG DOING BEFORE WE INSERT OUR FOOT INTO OUR MOUTH.

 

Proverbs 18
20A man's [moral] self shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; and with the consequence of his words he must be satisfied [whether good or evil].
21Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life].


WE ARE A RESULT OF OUR OWN WORDS AND ACTIONS. OH, WE KNOW THAT'S A HARD ONE.  IT HAS BEEN HARD SINCE ADAM AND EVE. WE POINT FINGERS, WE BLAME, WE PRETEND, WE DENY. IT'S THAT HUSBAND YOU GAVE ME. IT'S THE WIFE YOU GAVE ME, IT'S THE CHILD, THE CAT, THE DOG, THE WEATHER.NO IT'S ME.

 

Psalm 45

1MY HEART overflows with a goodly theme; I address my psalm to a King. My tongue is like the pen of a ready writer.


WE AUTHOR OUR FUTURE BY WHAT WE SAY (WITH OUR TONGUES). THE BOOK OF OUR LIFE IS WRITTEN BY THE WORDS THAT WE SPEAK. HOW DOES YOUR BOOK LOOK? ARE THE PAGES FILLED WITH SCRIBBLE FROM THE TIMES YOU HAVE CHANGED YOUR MIND AND CHANGED DIRECTION? YOU CAN REWRITE YOUR FUTURE STARTING TODAY. THAT IS GOOD NEWS.

 

Psalm 34
12What man is he who desires life and longs for many days, that he may see good?
13Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit.
14Depart from evil and do good; seek, inquire for, and crave peace and pursue (go after) it!


IF WE WANT TO SEE AND EXPERIENCE GOOD, AND LONG LIFE WE MUST CONTROL OUR TONGUES.

 

FATHER GOD, IN THE NAME OF JESUS, I REVERSE THE CURSE OF EVERY INEFFECTIVE WORD SPOKEN FROM THE MOUTHS OF THESE PRECIOUS PEOPLE AND I THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR THEIR POSITIVE CONFESSIONS, FRUITFUL WORDS AND GOD-FILLED LIVES, IN JESUS' NAME, AMEN.
