The other day we reviewed some questions to ask and verses to consider before speaking.
Today we will look at some promises to claim in regards to your tongue, some prayers to pray, some things to think upon, and an important purpose to establish.
Claim these promises:
Hear; For I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things. For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips. All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them. (Proverbs 8:6-8)
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. (Isaiah 55:11)
Pray these prayers:
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. (Psalm 51:10) Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips. (Psalms 141:3)
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer. (Psalms 19:14)
Think on these things:
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Philippians 4:8)
Establish this purpose:
Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou has tried me, and shalt find nothing: I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress. (Psalms 17:3)
My FATHER, My God, this year let my life reflect the blessing of the Lord, I shall not be static, I decree PROGRESS, FAVOR, HONOR, AND INFLUENCE are my portion. My life is SALTED, My speech is SALTED, My Home and Business are SALTED in the name of Jesus.
