James 3:6 (KJV) 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 [wheel] of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. [hell has to have your tongue to set a destructive fire in your life]
Nobody can make me think what I do not want to think and nobody can make me say what I don’t want to say. My tongue is my tongue.
The devil is always working to get your mind off the word so he can set your course by changing your words. If you are speaking your words, or the devil’s words, repent. Turn around, call it sin, and change the way you are speaking. Reset your course by saying what God says; nothing more and nothing less. Learn to walk after the Spirit.
Most of us grew up hearing and saying words of death. We would curse ourselves with things like, “Well, I’ll be damned,” or “I’m just sick about that.” Excuse me. Is that what you want? Do you want to be damned or sick, or do you want to be blessed?
The process can’t be changed but the words can! Walk after the Spirit and talk after the Spirit.
James 3:7, 8 (KJV) 7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: 8 But the tongue can no man [natural, carnal man] tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
It takes the man of the spirit to control the tongue. Everything that steals, kills and destroys is under the curse and promoted by the words of the natural man.
James 3:9, 10 (KJV) 9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. 10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
“These things ought not so to be.” Begin to say what you want for your life, your family, your job, your future. Speak the Word of God over your life. Receive His reward as you say what you want.
