Is your tongue saved?

I was BLESSED last night attending LifeChurch’s Ladies Study.  We are watching/discussing Joyce Meyers’ Love Life video. 

Last night she asked, “Is your tongue saved?”  How often do we let our negative thoughts control our words.  Those words get us all worked up and get us angry, sad, jealous, hurt, or hundreds of other feelings…  When we are upset, depressed, angry or whatever, we KNOW God is our strength so we should be speaking the truth.  God has angels all around to do his work and they are commanded by the Word of God. 

Psalm 103:20 Amplified Bible (AMP)

20Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, you His angels, you mighty ones who do His commandments, hearkening to the voice of His word.

 So…  Joyce gave the picture of a complaining person surrounded by lounging angels all yawning and bored.  They can NOT do God’s work with out hearing his Word.  If you are wondering why you are sick and tired…  It’s because that is what you are confessing with your thoughts and words.  I have realized that people who are happy and joyous do NOT have less hardship than us and sometimes have more.  What they have is the joy of the Lord! 

Proverbs 21:23 (NIV)

 23 Those who guard their mouths and their tongues
   keep themselves from calamity.

So next time you are in a bad place and wondering where God is, listen to yourself.  Are you complaining, gossiping, yelling, putting people down, judging or other things that the Word tells us not to do?  God works within us, so start by focusing on fixing you.  Certainly pray for people, but don’t let your mind focus on what YOU think is wrong with others because that is God’s job not ours.  Why not try positive words, the Word of God and let’s get those angels busy!!!  Look up some encouraging verses and post them everywhere…  in your home, car, office…  Anywhere you need angels.  (Not sure bout you, but for me that is EVERYWHERE!!!)  Happy Friday!
