Today’s Scripture(s)    Mark 14:71; James 3:8; James 3:8; 2 Peter 2:6-7


“But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man of whom ye speak. … But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. … But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. … And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:”


 “Govern your tongue”.  This is the word that I heard in my spirit this morning to give.  Govern means to rule over by right of authority; to hold in check; control.  Just because you are angry or upset does not mean that it’s okay to curse and swear.  If cussing and swearing is still in your vocabulary as a “Christian” then some Holy Ghost house cleaning is in order.  If to curse and swear is ‘natural’ for you then you better hit your knees and ask the Lord to deliver you from what’s within.  I can remember when I use to cuss’ and when I turned my face back to the Lord and repented of my sins I would sometimes ‘slip’ and curse and it grieved me that that was still within me.  (Is your spirit grieved when or if you curse or swear?  Does it grieve your spirit to hear cursing and swearing? If your answer is ‘No’, then I have to ask, why not?) Well one night, this was many years ago… One night while praying and crying about this I asked the Lord to take it out of me, I told Him I did not like it, I did not want it to be within me and I went to sleep.  Just before waking the next morning I had a dream, in the dream I was this ugly thing and this ugly thing’s neck was twisting and turning and I awoke startled.  When I went to the bathroom I began to cough and as I coughed a glob exited from my throat and I spit it out, it was very disgusting, the point is after that I did not have the urge to curse, after that cursing did not enter my thoughts when angry, when falling, when hurting myself in any way like stubbing my toe.  After that cursing was not a ‘natural’ part of conversation for me.  I knew that the Lord had answered my prayer and delivered me from the ugly thing that was within me that caused me to speak in such filthy ways.  Many of us need to be delivered from the demons that curse and swear.    Yes that’s right children of God, demons curse and swear.  They talk nasty and say filthy things, they will bring disgusting ungodly, sensual thoughts to your mind and they will cause you to speak words that do not please the Lord and that grieve His Holy Spirit.  You in your own power are not able to govern your tongue, but, I KNOW A MAN and His name is Jesus, if you will talk to Him if you will pray with a sincere heart and ask Him to deliver you and ask Him to govern your tongue, He will do it!  You’ve got to want it dear one.  You’ve got to want to be delivered.  You’ve got to want to take control over, take authority over what comes out of your mouth.  Getting the Word of God in you is the key.  Speaking and praying and decreeing and declaring His word is key.  “….for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.” (see Matthew 12:34; Luke 6:45).  Whatever is in your heart will govern your tongue.  What’s in your heart?



Today’s Prayer:

Father I thank you for this day, thank you for waking me up to see another day another day to give you glory, another day to bring you honor, another day to say I love you Lord, another day to thank you and praise you for all your goodness and your mercy and your grace you pour out and shower on my life.  Father I praise you and honor you and love you, you are so good to me Lord and I thank you.  Father I ask today that you would help each one of us to govern our tongues.  Help us Holy Spirit to be mindful of how we speak and what we say.  We do not want to grieve you Holy Spirit, precious Holy Spirit.  We do not want to grieve you in any way.  Let the words of our mouth and the meditation of our hearts be acceptable in your sight Lord, thank you for being our strength and our redeemer!  Bridle our tongues Lord and don’t allow any filthy communication to come out of our mouths.  Keep the door of our lips Father God, set a watch over our tongues Lord.  Speak to us Holy Spirit and correct us and chasten us to hold our peace and speak boldly your word and speak with boldness the gospel of peace.  We will not speak filthy things, we will not talk foolishly, we will not take part in coarse jesting nasty filthy jokes of any kind but rather we will keep our hearts in a place of giving you thanks and praise, we will keep our hearts in a place of glorifying your name, we will keep our hearts in a place of lifting you up Lord and exalting you Lord and being a true sincere witness of you Lord to this sick and dying world.  We will stay in the place of prayer and communing with you and reading your word.  Open our eyes Lord to see in you in your word, open our ears Lord to hear your voice.  Help us Holy Spirit to live holy righteous and pure before the Father.  Use us for your glory Lord, use us to bring you honor Father God.  Bless your great name.  You are so good to us and we cannot praise you enough, we cannot glorify you enough, we cannot exalt you enough Father God.  Blessing and honor to you Lord.  You are so great and true.  Blessing and honor to you Lord.  There is none like you.  Blessing and honor to you Lord, so righteous, holy and pure.  Blessing and honor to you Lord.  There is none like you.  Lead us today in the way that we should go, direct our footsteps Father and keep us on a right pathway, thank you Father God for delivering us, thank you Lord for deliverance.  Thank you Lord for loving us and keeping us, thank you Lord for all things, In Jesus name I pray. Amen




If You Have Not Made Jesus Lord Of Your Life Pray This Prayer:

Today Lord, right this very minute I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I need a Savior. Your word says that there is no other name under heaven by which a man or woman can be saved and that name is Jesus. Today I repent of every sin that I have ever committed, I repent of every sin that I have done and I ask you Jesus to come into my life and be my Lord and Savior. I believe that you Lord Jesus shed your precious blood and died for my sins, I am willing to turn from sin and live a life that is holy and pleasing in your sight. I now invite you Christ Jesus to come into my heart and live in me and be my personal Savior. I ask that you would fill me with your precious Holy Spirit, lead and guide me in this life Lord Jesus. Thank you for saving my soul. Amen.
