The Bible is specific about the words that hinder your destiny.
Lying is one of the deadliest sins of the tongue against which you must set a guard. Among the things that God especially hates is a lying tongue:
There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers. (Proverbs 6:16-19, NIV)
When you speak words of truth, you speak life. When you speak lies, you speak death. When you make promises to others or to God and fail to keep them, you are lying. If you realize you have failed to be honest or if you have made a promise to someone and have not fulfilled it, acknowledge it. Repent and ask God to enable you to keep you from lying by making promises you cannot fulfill. Before you make promises, be sure that you are able and willing to fulfill them.
Murmuring is another barrier preventing believers from entering into the promises of God.
Through murmuring and complaining, you speak death into your circumstances instead of life.
Gossip is another hindrance that will abort your destiny, and it is time we recognize gossip for what it is--a sin. Those who gossip are yielding their tongues to Satan and bringing curses upon themselves.
Backbiting is also a method through which Satan has erected a major stronghold. Backbiting is a form of gossip for the specific purpose of saying mean and spiteful things about another person. Backbiting is also referred to in the Word as “false accusation.”
Slander is finding fault with others and spreading unjust innuendos and criticism. When a Christian slanders someone, it harms three persons: The individual who is speaking, the individual spoken to, and the individual spoken about. Not only must you not speak evil about your brothers and sisters in the Lord, you are commanded not to speak evil of any man (James 4:11).
Pray about each of the following areas before you conclude your quiet time today. Are you using your tongue to:
Remember--these types of words will hinder your destiny!
