We previously discussed the tongue and why it's important to speak right. If you missed it read it here.
Not only is it right to speak right, but it actually important to speak the Word of God. The Word of God is very powerful. The Virgin Mary got pregnant by the Holy Spirit as soon as she received the Word from the Angel of God. Remember when she said, 'be it done to me according to your Word?' Yes, that's when she got pregnant and became the mother of Jesus our Lord. You must learn to say the right things always. It matters that you know the Scriptures for yourself, not just when you go to church..study the word at home too.
Speaking right words in and over your life is good, but speaking the Word of God in and over your life is better. The Word of God is powerful, it has life. Jesus said in John 6 v 63, '...the words that I speak to you, are spirit and they are life.' Psalm 12 v 6 says, 'the word of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.'

The Word of God said in Job 22 v 28 says, 'You shall also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto you..' Remember, it didn't say you shall decree a good thing only, it said, you shall decree a thing, meaning, ANYTHING you decree will be done for you, be it good or bad. It doesn't matter if you know about it or not, that is why God said in Hosea 4 v 6, 'My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge..'
What do you do to speak right always? You have to change your thought process by paying more attention to God's word. Romans 12 v2 says, 'And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, so you may prove what is good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.' Remember, your mind is the doorway to your heart.
What you think of will always go to your spirit, and you will in turn voice it out for Jesus said in Luke 6 v 45, 'A good man out of the good treasures of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil; FOR OUT OF THE ABUNDANCE OF THE HEART THE MOUTH SPEAKETH.'
When you think right, you will speak right and when you speak right, your life will go in the right direction! So in other to think right, study the Scriptures and meditate always on the Word of God and refuse to allow negative thoughts creep into your heart. Proverbs 4 v 23 says, 'Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.'
Finally my brethren, remember how you got saved? (I assume you are saved) It was through your confession! When you confessed Jesus as the Lord of your life, you were saved right? So, it is also through that same confession that you will live right for the kingdom of God is for talkers, you have to talk your way to the top!
I apologize for the long epistle. I wanted to end the WATCH YOUR TONGUE in this part so we can discuss something else next time. But I do hope you will be blessed. Feel free to share your thoughts. God bless you real good.
