Set a Guard by Beth Auman

Do you have loose lips? Has someone spoken evil against you? Is the first thing that you speak when faced with difficulty positive or negative? Does it bring God Glory or make Jesus cry? Do you desire to win or loose?

There Is Victory in Jesus! But, we can only walk in that Victory if we do it His way.

Each of these questions is answered in Psalm 141:3-4

Set a guard, Adonai over my mouth; keep watch at the door of my lips. Don’t let my heart turn to anything evil or allow me to act wickedly with men who are evildoers; keep me from eating their delicacies.

Delicacies in this verse are the delicacies of loose lips, lips that lie and spread gossip.

LORD  -I refuse to receive this loose lipped gossip. I will not go down that path. Oh LORD,  Please keep watch at the door of my lips. I choose to use my lips to glorify YOU. I Trust You Adonai in Jesus Name to turn this situation meant for my harm for my good for Your Glory. Amen

Genesis 50:20 (NIV) 20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.

Psalm 141 is a really good self evaluation tool. The Bible says in Proverbs 18:21  (NKJV)21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.

We all want to eat the ripest and yummiest fruit. Not the rotten fruit. Therefore, watch what you say. Speak God’s Word over yourself, your family and every situation that you find yourself in. Ask the Lord to set a guard over your mouth and keep watch at the door of your lips. Ask Him not to allow your heart to turn to anything evil, therefore preventing you from acting wickedly with men who are evil doers. Ask the LORD to keep you from eating of their delicacies. In Jesus Name.

GOD IS FAITHFUL and JESUS IS LORD. Trust in Him at all times.

Blessings and Shalom.

Love you all beyond measure.
