“Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips.” Psalm 141:3
How important is our speech? Jesus said it revealed what was going on in our hearts. Proverbs repeatedly tells us that our words can wound or heal. The apostle Paul tells us to speak only what will benefit those who hear us. Remember the saying, ‘think before you speak!’
In light of these scriptures, this prayer of David is very appropriate. Only God can help us tame the tongue and use its power to bless. Let’s invite God into our world of speech and ask Him to take control of it as He does our Hearts!
It’s not about US, it’s ALL about God!!
