We Can Sometimes Get Caught Up


In this day and age, everywhere we go, we are surrounded by words!


It takes a lot of faith and continual praying as a Christ-follower to speak the right words!


We can sometimes get “caught up” in this fire-storm of endless words and opinions.


The Lord pointed this Scripture out to me a couple of years ago:


Psalm 39:1 says,...I said to myself, "I will watch what I do and not sin in what I say. I will hold my tongue when the ungodly are around me."


Each time I allow myself to be dragged into that coliseum where the gladiators of complaining and arguing dwell, I get beaten-down every time! When I do as they do, and speak as they speak, I get weaker and weaker. If that isn’t enough, I’ll try dragging someone else into this battle of the “flesh” to fight with me.


It is always a losing battle when we fight against flesh and blood..


Ephesians 6:12 says, For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.


  • Do the words we speak bring life?

  • Do the words we speak bring death?

  • Do our words affect our life?


Proverbs 18:21 says, Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.

And also...

Jeremiah 21:8 says, "Tell all the people, 'This is what the LORD says: Take your choice of life or death!


I will end with this very powerful Scripture:


James 3:2 says, For we all stumble in many [ways]. If anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body as well.


Wow! Come on! Speak to me!
