We have asked God to give us some medicine from the Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. We received wisdom from Jesus Lover Judy (Judypie) that helps us to remember to watch what we say.
Check out these Meditations from Judypie. We hope this medicine will help you during the upcoming week to use your mouth in ways that please and glorify God...
Word In Due Season... The Effect Of Your Words
This powerful scripture warns us of the danger of gossip, tale bearing and backbiting.
Speaking such things in private to even one person is still damaging. Not only have we slandered an individual to another, but WORDS have been spoken out into the atmosphere that have continuing affect in the spiritual realm.
Gossip is a big problem among God’s children, and it should not be so. Tale bearing, gossip, slander, and backbiting cause strife and division, which is the devil’s goal. Jesus’ words are spirit and life. Learning to say only what He would say, we would speak forth life - to the listener, to the person being discussed, and to ourselves.
Too often, we speak What the devil would say - death to everyone concerned. I believe that “unscriptural speaking” causes depression and sickness.
Remember words spoken into the atmosphere can cause trouble also - not just words spoken to someone. Order your conversation so that your words Minister life. Your reward will be more joy and better health.
LET GOD USE YOUR MOUTH - NOT THE DEVIL.
Fruit of My Lips
Lord, by Your Holy Spirit perfect the fruit of my lips. Help me draw thanksgiving forth from my innermost resources; reach down into the most secret places of my heart that I may offer significant thanksgiving to You in the name of Jesus. Amen
Sing a New Song
Out of your innermost being shall flow rivers of living water.
This water is for your healing and the healing of those within your realm of influence. This living water will wash away thoughts that would limit your spiritual and emotional growth and your possibilities.
What are you speaking; what are you singing? Are you singing songs of self-pity, gloom and doom or songs of joy, peace and love? The choice is yours. Speak out to others in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, offering praise with your voice and making melody with all your heart to the Lord (Ephesians 5:19).
You begin by loving the Lord your God. Choose to be joyful in him and be in high spirits.
If you are feeling down, if circumstances are holding you in depression, if you are in the midst of a trial... choose to sing a new song to the Lord, and your feelings will be lifted, and you can go on your way holding your head high because the joy of the Lord is your strength.
As Reverend M. Sylvia Ball shared in her Powerhouse blog entry, praise goes before victory!
Heavenly Father, today I am singing a new song.
Yesterday with its victories and failures has passed away, and behold on this day all things have become new.
I look forward to all things that You send my way -- a new sunrise, new friends, relationships, assignments, responsibilities, blessings, and new opportunities to be a blessing to someone today. I release the past, and will not judge by the former thought patterns and attitudes.
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for Your goodness to me. The earth is full of God’s unfailing love. Amen
Joy floods my being, and rejoicing covers my lips!
The dark clouds of oppression are replaced with your goodness and its beauty, Father.
The cheerfulness of my heart is as medicine to my spirit, soul and body.
It is well with me because I am yours and you are mine. Your banner over me is love.
In the name of Jesus, I rejoice. Amen.
Father, I affirm the Lordship of Jesus over my relationships.
When I was a child, I talked, thought and reasoned like a child. I am done with childish ways and have put them aside.
The blood of Christ, who offered himself without spot to You, Father, purges my conscience from dead works of selfishness, agitating passions and moral conflicts.
Holy Spirit, help me grow up in every way, speaking truly, dealing truly and living truly. Jesus is Lord over my spirit, soul and body. Amen
Renewing Thought Patterns
It is written “For My thoughts are not your thoughts neither are your ways My ways” declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
I no longer desire to conform to the pattern of this world but may I be transformed by the renewing of my mind.
Then my thoughts and my ways will be changed to Your thoughts and Your ways in the name of Jesus.
The Tongue of the Learned
The Sovereign Lord has given me an instructed tongue to know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, my ear to listen like one being taught.
The Sovereign Lord has opened my ears, I have not been rebellious; have not drawn back.
Guide me in Your truth and faithfulness and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; for You do I wait all the day long.
Words of Wisdom
Father, in the name of Jesus I apply my heart to instruction and my ears to words of knowledge. All Your words are true; all Your righteous laws are eternal. The words of the Lord are flawless, silver refined in a furnace of clay, seven times. My mouth will speak words of wisdom; the utterance from my heart will give understanding. Amen
I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Psalm 91:2
