He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction. Proverbs 13:3 KJV
Your words act as the rudder of life. In other words, you steer your course with what you say. They are words of failure or they are words of faith.
Our verse today is admonishing us to guard, or watch what we say. Talking without thinking of the result of what we say is almost always disastrous.
Listen to yourself. Do you really want what you’re saying? Things like, “I’m sick and tired . . . “, or “I never get a break,” will give you sickness, weariness, and missed opportunity. Say instead, “I’m healthy and prospering.” After all, that’s the will of God for your life.
The elder unto the wellbeloved Gaius, whom I love in the truth. Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. 3 John 1:1-2 KJV
