~Words Control Your Life~

20 A man's stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth, and from the produce of his lips he shall be filled.
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

Proverbs 18:20 says what your lips produce will fill your life. Your lips produce -- words.

Words determine the course and the outcome of your life. You now have, and will continue to have, the fruit your tongue produces.

To change your life you need to change your words.

2 We all stumble in many ways. If anyone is never at fault in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to keep his whole body in check.
8 but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.

To change the words you speak you need God's help.

As Jesus said, out of the abundance of your heart your mouth will speak. So, you need a new heart and you need it filled with God's Word. Only in that way can your tongue be brought under complete control.

Lord, because your Word teaches that words control my life, thank you for giving me a new heart and the desire to control my words.

I get a daily email titled "Daily Thought." Today's "Daily Thought" was: "When you live in reaction, you give your power away. Then you get to experience what you gave your power to."

How often do you "live in reaction?" Just something to think about!!
