As a man thinks in his heart so is he:
Pro_23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:
What you speak and think yesterday determines who you are today. The Bible says life and death is in the tongue:
Pro_18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Everyone opens their mouth in this life. Some speak doubt, fear and unbelief others are very conscious of what they confess with their mouths because they know life and death is in the tongue.
So if you are a person who loves to talk know that the fruit of the words you speak will either bring life or death in your relationships and in your areas of life.
I am shocked at the conversations that go on between husbands and wives. Words of love, encouragement, exhortation, and edification are not spoken but conversations that bring death to relationships and not life.
Some years ago I heard of a man and woman who had been married for 52 years and got a divorce. I mean really now, in 52 years of marriage you have had to have had about every argument a husband and wife could have.
I have to know that what they thought and spoke in 52 years of marriage came to the day they stood in divorce court. Life and death are in the tongue.
Everyone has thoughts, internal dialogue. We have all kinds of things running through these minds of ours. It is the battle field of our lives. We imagine all kinds of things in our minds.
But if you do not learn how to cast down imaginations in your mind and bring your thoughts captive, well, you are doomed to defeat and failure:
2Co_10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;………….NOT A SUGGESTION!!!
If you don’t learn to do this then you don’t have the proverbial snowball’s chance in Hell of ever getting victory over your situations in life.
If you keep traveling down the same path every day, doing things the same way, keep getting frustrated, anxious, fearful, depressed, disgusted, discouraged etc. GET OFF THAT PATH YOU ARE GOING DOWN. Listen:
Psa_119:105 NUN. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Get the Word of God in you, study to show yourself approved a person that does not need to be ashamed.
If you would go down a road each day and you got robbed, raped and beat up if you had any sense you would say, “I’m not going down that road anymore. But so many I talk to keep going down the same road, living life the same way and do not understand that they are their own worst enemy. Not mom, dad, sister, brother, husband, wife, not even the devil, but themselves.
So how are you going to tackle your problems today? Do you use a humanistic psychologist who teaches you that man is the answer to man’s problems or are you going to look to God, the Word of God, the Holy Spirit and others that God puts in your pathway of life with Godly counsel? The choice is your’s, hope you make a wise choice today. God bless you !!!!
