The Power of Speech

By   •   March 11

You have a tongue and a voice. These instruments of speech can be used destructively or employed constructively. You can use your tongue to slander, to gripe, to scold, to nag, and to quarrel; or you can bring it under the control of God’s Spirit and make it an instrument of blessing and praise. The 20th-century version of James 3:3 says, “When we put bits into the horses’ mouths to make them obey us, we control the rest of their bodies also.” Just so, when we submit to the claims of Christ upon our lives, our untamed natures are brought under His control. We become meek, tamed, and “fit for the Master’s service.”

Prayer for the day

I would be under Your control, Lord Jesus
Christ. Take away the pride that keeps me from complete submission.

    Tongue can either make or break. It should be used only for God’s work. To praise and Worship him. To surrender and ask for forgiveness. God today I surrender my tongue to you. Use it for your glory only. Amen

    Too often, we don’t fully consider what we say before we say it.
