Set a guard at our mouth O Lord...





Hi family and friends,
The Bible says in..
Psalm 141:3 "Set a guard over my mouth, O LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips."
Foolish, loose talking, cracking coarse jokes seems 

to be OK in today's world.

But God's Word warns us in..
Ephesians 5:4 Nor should there be 

obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are 


out of place, but rather thanksgiving.

Paul warns us that improper language should have 


no place in our conversation.

How can we praise and worship God and with the 


same mouth crack coarse jokes? Even listening and 


being entertained by such jokes sure offends the 


Holy Spirit.

It's time to draw a line. It's time to take a check of 


what comes out of our mouth.
Matthew 15:11 What goes into a man's 

mouth does not make him 'unclean,' but what 


comes out of his mouth, that is what makes him 


'unclean.'"
So it's time to watch what comes out..

Are our words pleasing to God? Let's be careful 


not to speak carelessly.
Matthew 12:36 But I tell you that men will 

have to give account on the day of judgment for 


every careless word they have spoken. 37 For by 


your words you will be acquitted, and by your 


words you will be condemned."

WORDS REVEAL WHAT'S IN OUR HEART.

May our prayer be in line with what the Psalmist 


said..

Psalm 19:14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.
Psalm 141:3 "Set a guard over my mouth, O 
LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips."

Abba Father guard our mouths and lips from, 


foolish talks, coarse joking, criticism, 


condemnation, gossip, slander, evil speaking, 


complaining, lying, false teaching, murmuring etc...


Help me to watch my words..

Set a guard over my mouth O Lord...

In the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Amen

YSIC
