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.
The four conversations.
1 With God
2 With self
3 With Satan
4 With others
In our theme scripture above, Jesus sets Himself apart to go pray. It’s important to note that because it’s the one thing we should emulate. Before you enter into any conversation with anyone including yourself, you should always talk to God, first.
What you say reveals, to whom you have been talking, or whom you have been hanging with. You can purpose to be someone who blesses, not curses, with the words you speak in the fourth conversation: the one between you and me.
So how do we leverage the opportunity for good that exists each time we open our mouths to speak? One simple conversation will get that ball rolling, and it’s the most important of the four: the one between you and God.
Getting good at communicating well begins, interestingly enough, with prayer. Prayer? Yes. That’s right, Prayer.
It’s important to steal away in the quiet of a given day to communicate with your heavenly Father, but equally important is the practice of speaking to him and hearing from him while in conversation with others. As words are flowing from your mouth, seek input in real time:
God, how can I serve your purposes in this person’s life,? What words are fitting for this situation? What are you after here, Lord?
What are you working on here?
How can I be of help?
