THE LORD'S CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...
DATE: SUNDAY NOVEMBER 13TH, 2016.
TEXT: 1 Corinthians 15:33, Matthew 15:11
THEME: WATCH YOUR TONGUE
MESSAGE:
"Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! 6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. " (James 3:5-6)
Many people hardly weigh the consequences of their actions. It is very easy for them to open their mouths wide and let the words fly without having an inkling that the words they speak can turn around to haunt them. Today, many people's problems have arisen as a result of what they said with their mouths. Nothing passes them without attracting comments. They have said unprintable words against genuine servants of God. Some complain and murmur about the church, leaders and workers and even the pastor without any fear of God. The truth is that speaking against men of God can attract disastrous consequences. God is the one that has the right to judge their actions. So, anyone who decides to castigate them for any reason is courting trouble. Aaron and Miriam tried it and had a feel of God's anger. Korah, Dathan and Abiram went to hell alive for the same reason.
Are you among those that are flippant and hardly exercise caution in speaking. You need to understand that the tongue from the outside is about one of the smallest members of our physical being, but can ignite a fire which can consume the entire being. You must watch what you say. Do not be quick to dabble into discussions that do not concern you. Do not spread news when you have not investigated your story or else, you might be kindling the fire that will later burn you.
Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:
1. Any trouble I have brought upon my life because of what I said with my mouth, let God forgive me and show me mercy.
2. In any way I have murmured against the church or the servant of God or the workers, leaders and even my fellow brethren, I regret my actions and repent of them and ask God to forgive me, in Jesus' name.
3. O God, help me to control my tongue from speaking perverseness, in Jesus' name.
4. Any spirit assigned to blackmail our G. O, our mummy and their children; fail woefully in your assignment, in Jesus' name.
