Guard what you say today!!

Touch of Encouragement for you _______ and this verse from Proverbs paints a picture of how a word that is spoken wisely appears to others. This kind of word is like golden apples displayed in a setting of silver. Further Wise Sayings of Solomon: 25:11 A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold In settings of silver. 12 Like an earring of gold and an ornament of fine gold is a wise rebuker to an obedient ear. (Proverbs 25:11-12) (Read Proverbs 25:1-28) The Bible tells us to guard our mouths and to be careful about anything we say. If we are to speak words that are a blessing and that edify others, then we must line up our words with the Word of God. It is very important to control our conversation. We will ultimately receive the things that we speak. If we speak the Word of God in faith, it will come to pass. The opposite is also true; if we speak evil long enough, it too will come to pass, as there is power in words.(B. Miller) We will eat the fruit of our spoken words; therefore, we must learn to speak or confess the Word of God and we must also have faith in it, if we want to reap good things in our lives. We must not confess lack, as the Heavenly Father has given us everything we need. We must not confess defeat, as God has made us more than conquerors. We must not confess doubt, as God has given us His faith. We are to speak the things that the Word of God declares as truth. We easily quote what men have to say on a subject, and many times we believe them despite what the Word of God has to say about it.(B. Miller) The bottom line is this: We should confess our faith and trust in the Lord by saying, “I don’t know how the Lord is going to help us meet this need, but I confess that He will, because He cares for us.” Then we must ask the Lord if there is anything, He would have us to do. At times, He may speak a plan to us or He may send the help through a friend or give us favor with the landlord. We may not know how the answer will come, but if we stand and confess our Lord’s provision in the face of our problem and have faith in Him, He will not fail us. ><))))2020-136*>
