THEME: WATCH YOUR WORDS AT ALL TIME I.

MEMORISE:

In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise. Proverbs 10:19

READ: James 1:26

If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.

MESSAGE

Nuclear weapons are o be handled with the utmost care. Your tongue is the most potent weapon in your body; it is your nuclear weapon. The Bible, in James 3:5 says:
“ Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!”

When the devil wants to find out a person’s secret in order to bring him down, he begins to ask questions so that the fellow can share his secret with him. The devil needed to know Samson’s secret in order to bring him down, so he sent Delilah to ask him questions. Up until Samson’s tongue gave him away, all the devil’s efforts were futile.

Do you know that your tongue can either deliver you from your enemies or cause you to be entrapped by them?

Many times, in a bid to boast, we let out our secret to the enemy. Not every testimony should be shared in public, especially when it is not yet complete. You also have a digital tongue – what you say online. The enemies are taking note of what they can use against you, even on the internet. Many people have lost great opportunities because of what they said on the internet many years past. Some people are so loose with their digital tongue that kidnappers can even track them via their social media pages. Be careful what information you divulge to your enemies.

“Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.” Proverbs 21:23

Watch your utterance when you are angry. You can’t take back your words even after the anger abated. When you are happy also, be careful what promises you make, what testimonies you share – bridle your tongue (Psalm 32:9). Ask God for wisdom to know what to say and what not to say at all times and He will grant you your request (James 1:5).

KEY POINT:

Proverbs 29:11 says “A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.”

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Kings 1-4

HYMN 12: I AM THINE O LORD.

  1. I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice,
    And it told Thy love to me;
    But I long to rise in the arms of faith
    And be closer drawn to Thee.
  2. o Refrain:
    Draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
    To the cross where Thou hast died;
    Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
    To Thy precious, bleeding side.
    o
  3. Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,
    By the pow’r of grace divine;
    Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,
    And my will be lost in Thine.
  4. Oh, the pure delight of a single hour
    That before Thy throne I spend,
    When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God
    I commune as friend with friend!
  5. There are depths of love that I cannot know
    Till I cross the narrow sea;
    There are heights of joy that I may not reach
    Till I rest in peace with Thee.
