Samson said, “O God, that I may with one blow take vengeance on the Philistines for my two eyes! …let me die with the Philistines (Judges 16:28-30, NKJV)”. The enemy deserves to die, but you don’t need to die. It was Samson’s mouth that ensnared him. The words you speak are not ordinary as they affect your future and experiences. In James 3:6, we see that, “…the tongue is a fire…”. Your tongue is the real fire, it is combustible! Every time you speak, your words set something on fire. It is your responsibility to determine if it is the right kind of fire or the wrong one that your words produce.
“…A world of iniquity…” (Jam. 3:6) – this is the unsanctified tongue. God wants your tongue to be sanctified, and it is the Word of God that sanctifies the tongue.
You must come to a place where what you are consistently speaking is in alignment with what God has said.
There is a cyclical law that God set in motion when he created man. Every woman has a cycle of life every 28 days, referred to as a menstrual cycle. Different cells in the body have different cycles of renewal. A disruption of the cycle results in sickness and disease. James 3:6 (AMP) goes on to say, “…and sets on fire the course of our life [the cycle of man’s existence]…”. A curse (which is made up of words) affects the cycle of life for evil. It could be ancestral, racial, gender or age-related. Your sanctified mouth is the only weapon that will set you free from such cycles.
PRAYER: Father, deliver me from the deceitful tongue. Help me by Your Spirit to fill my heart with Your Word and to speak and act accordingly in Jesus’ name. Amen!
