Today’s Inspiration: “Prudence is a fountain of life to the prudent, but folly brings punishment to fools. The hearts of the wise make their mouths prudent, and their lips promote instruction. Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.” Proverbs 16:22-24 NIV. The Words in our life brings either blessings or curses. They could build a soul or breaks one’s heart. Words are the foundation of our maturity and yet they are the destiny of our future. If God created the Heavens and the earth with His Word, it reveals the divine power of his sanctification and salvation of our souls.
Jesus taught,” Don’t you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body? But the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart, and these defile them. For out of the heart come evil thoughts—murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. These are what defile a person; but eating with unwashed hands does not defile them.” Matthew 15:17-20. God’s Word is Spirit and is life to our spirit, soul and body. His Word always edify, exhort and comfort. 1 Corinthians 14:3 His Wisdom comes from His Word of Instructions, like living waters cleansing and correcting us of all defilement which we had spoken in anger, pride, bitterness or frustration. Prophet Isaiah has to be cleansed of his lips with the coals of heaven before he could be commissioned. Isaiah 6:5 Repentance breaks all curses from our lips and brings forth blessing, healing, salvation, and reconciliation in all our homes and families. Praise God!
Prayer: O Lord my God, sanctify my lips and consecrate my heart that it shall hide your divine Word day and night. Forgive me of any defilement or curses that I have said in the past and I rebuke and revoke those curses that have said upon me. Take away my old, hardened and defiled heart and give me your a pure and new heart, filled with thy spirit that speaks of your Word and life in Jesus' Name, Amen.
