TONGUE: According to the free online dictionary “is the fleshy, movable, muscular organ, attached in most vertebrates to the floor of the mouth, that is the principal organ of taste, an aid in chewing and swallowing, and, in humans, an important organ of speech.” Note the underlined words in the defnition above. Many times we use our tongue negatively and positively, but in this article, I will focus on the negative use of our mouth in relation to the Word of God, our lifestlyle generally. Many times we backbite(Ps 15:1-3), Kill(Ps 140:1-3), Speak lies(Ps 78:32-37), Plan evil(Ps 50:19-20), Curse(Ps 10:7), Flatter, cause war etc. forgetting that “Whatever we say with our mouth (tongue) is a self fufilling prophecy which will come to pass in a matter of time” We make comments on people we are close to and those we are not closely related to, we pass judgement, criticise, condemn and make conclusions on issues we don’t have the clue of the real cause. For every wrong usage of our mouth (Tongue), there is a consequence, read Ps 120:3-4 and James 1:25-27.
Caution: You can caution yourself today to avoid destruction that could befall the works of your hands according to Ecc 5:6 “Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry and at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands”
Prayer: Ps 19:14 “Heavenly father, let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight Oh Lord, my strenght and my redeemer.
Action Point: Be consious of your thoughts, actions and confessions, cultivate this habit for God is ever ready to assist and be of help.
