YOU ARE WHAT YOU SAY
Father, help me not to make my mouth SPOIL my destiny in Jesus name
Text: James 3:1-18
It’s not what goes into your mouth that defiles you; you are defiled by the words that come out of your mouth (Matthew 15:11).
What are you saying concerning your life, family, business, finances, children, spouse, career, present situation? Are you allowing the newspapers or current circumstances around you to define what you say? Are your words in agreement with what God has spoken?
Hebrews 1:3 says that God “upholds all things by the word of His power”. Meaning that, the world and everything in it will collapse, if God’s word is taken out of the equation. The word of God is errorless, impregnable, and authoritative, having no margin for failure, and therefore in the face of any circumstance or prevailing situation, you should declare the word boldly.
The word of God is our most potent weapon as believers, and we must not be intimidated to put it to use.
So, in this abridge piece, we briefly outline few inspiration that can guide you to properly guide what you’re saying to yourself

Proverbs 17:28 Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.
Proverbs 15:1 A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
James 4:11 Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge.
Matthew 12:36-37 I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

Proverbs 15:4 A gentle tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit.
Proverbs 17:27 Whoever restrains his words has knowledge, and he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding.
James 3:1-18 Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness. For we all stumble in many ways. And if anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle his whole body. If we put bits into the mouths of horses so that they obey us, we guide their whole bodies as well. Look at the ships also: though they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are guided by a very small rudder wherever the will of the pilot directs. So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great things. How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire! …
