The tongue – Part 2
From the previews edition dated 3rd March, 2019 we were advised to abide in the Word of God for our leading and direction. We must have it clear in our hearts that our tongue is very important and should be used wisely.
The eyes of the LORD are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good. The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit (Proverbs 15:3-4, NIV).
The Lord God Almighty watches over the affairs of men and no individual can escape or hide from His presence. Know that all your actions are recorded by the Almighty God who before Him nothing is hidden because in every individual His Spirit dwells in them as a witness.
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: (Romans 8:16).
This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth (1 John 5:6, KJV).
And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one (1 John 5:8, KJV).
The above Scriptures show that there are inner witnesses in us that we cannot deny or do away with: The Spirit, the water, and the blood. These are things that our Father in heaven has put in us to give us life, and when such are no longer functional we say a person has died. So what do you think about the life you’re living now?
Have it in mind that creation is daily depending on what you will say for it to function. In the days of Job God asked him have you spoken to the day? But rather Job was complaining because he was ignorant of the fullness of God.
Have you ever given orders to the morning, or shown the dawn its place, that it might take the earth by the edges and shake the wicked out of it? (Job 38:12-13, NIV)
The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life. Yet there are some of you who do not believe (John 6:63-64, NIV).
Beloved do you know Jesus Christ? His life is the light of men and when we don’t walk in that light or His leading we go astray. Is the Holy Spirit indwelling in you or you don’t have any relationship with Him? When any man has Him (Holy Spirit) he is bold, happy and is always in tune with the Father because His words are seasoned by the Holy Spirit. If you have not known Him there is an opportunity for you to know Him now. Why not say this pray of commitment: Lord Jesus, come into my heart and be my Lord and personal Saviour. I am a sinner and I’m not worthy to come into your presence but by your mercy. Cleanse me from all unrighteousness and make me whole. I believe that you are the Son of God Who came and died on the cross of Calvary for the forgiveness and remission of sins, and was buried and on the third day resurrected and is now seated at the right hand of God Almighty. I surrender all, come in to my heart and I confess you as my Lord and personal Saviour. Thank you Lord Jesus for saving my soul.
Now if you made this prayer sincerely from your heart know that you are now born again. Join a Bible believing Church around you and tell them about your new life in Christ Jesus and fellowship with them to grow in the faith. Also you can give us a call for prayers, counseling and direction; our contacts are included in this article, God bless you.
Beloved as I continue, our tongue is a powerful tool God has given to us to bring glory and honour to His Holy name.
