“When words are many transgression is not lacking, but he who restrains his lips is prudent.”

Like so many other members of our physical body, our tongue can be used for good or evil, depending on who or what is in control, (a) the mighty Spirit of God, (b) one’s own human spirit {the flesh, the fallen nature}, or (c) the devil.


If, as children of the living God, we have died with Jesus Christ through faith in his word, thereby becoming partakers in his death, and if we have consequently been reborn of God’s Spirit with a new nature, “which is created in the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness” (Eph 4:24), then, and then only are we empowered to take the control of our tongue out of the enemies hands and to use it, like the rest of our physical members, for our God’s glory. (Rom 6:12-14) Remember, we we must consciously put off the old nature and put on this new nature each day by walking in it, as the Spirit of God’s Word leads and empowers us. (Eph 4:23-23) “Put off the old nature which belongs to our former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind.”

And it is very necessary for us to take this control out of the enemy’s hands, because, as we are told in James 3:6, “The tongue is a fire. It is an unrighteous world among our members, staining the whole body, setting on fire the cycle of nature, and set on fire by hell.” I hope we are all aware of what that ‘setting on fire the cycle of natureis all about. I for one remember times when I started to talk in a wrong way about someone, how, in no time at all, my tongue ran wild, and it was only in the power of the name and blood of Jesus Christ that I could put it back in its place.

How about you!!
