Your mouth reveals you.
And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.
We paused some concerns last week about our conversations, with God, with ourselves, with the enemy, and with others, and yes we do talk to ourselves and to the devil. Though the devil does most of the talking. We should never give him a listening ear. We should always learn to talk to God before talking to anyone else.
When you and I seek God’s wisdom—when we lean in to hear his voice and pursue divine insights before we open our mouths, we stand a 100 percent better chance of doing good instead of harm. Any conversation you have with another human being ought first to be a conversation between you and God:
What are you saying to me, Lord? What are you up to in my life? Why are you having me communicate with this person? And what do you want me to say?
“Do not let unwholesome [foul, profane, worthless, vulgar] words ever come out of your mouth, but only such speech as is good for building up others, according to the need and the occasion, so that it will be a blessing to those who hear [you speak].”
EPHESIANS 4:29 AMP
“Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God.”
PHILIPPIANS 4:6 AMP
