I was inspired through a Bible lesson this week to meditate daily on the short scripture found in Psalm 141: 3.
Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.”
This lesson was so timely no matter how spiritually mature or spiritually immature. It is so easy to spew hate with our mouths and speak damnation to a situation. As Christians we are to speak life. In James 3:5 the Bible likens the tongue to that of fire. We are admonished not to speak blessings and cursings out of the same mouth. Be sure to adapt this short prayer of guidance and direction and allow the Lord to keep your words. Ask God to arrange your thoughts and you be sure to meditate on His Word to ensure success!
