Matthew 12:34-36 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
James 3:5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
Proverbs 6:1-5 My son, if thou be surety for thy friend, if thou hast stricken thy hand with a stranger, Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with thewords of thy mouth. Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself, and make sure thy friend. Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids. Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.
Proverbs 11:9-12 An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but throughknowledge shall the just be delivered. When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: and when the wicked perish, there is shouting. By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked. He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace.
Eph 5:12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
Psalms 71:14-17 But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more. My mouth shall show forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof. I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only. O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works
Judges 11:36 And she said unto him, My father, if thou hast opened thy mouth unto the LORD, do to me according to that which hath proceeded out of thy mouth; forasmuch as the LORD hath taken vengeance for thee of thine enemies, even of the children of Ammon.
Psalms 141:2-4 Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice. Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips. Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practice wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.
Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
>The words of our mouths are incredibly important. Test this> "Lord I forgive everyone. God forgive them. God forgive me. God bless everyone." Now, next week in traffic or in a familiar place? If someone tests you, you've already prayed for them! If we pray like the Sons of God we are in Christ before we go out, we've already finished the battle... it's but left to walk in victory. (Depending upon your neighborhood, this could take serious consideration. God is faithful!) Glory be to God.
> Father, thank you for you goodness extended towards all men. Forgive us for any walking by the flesh, we choose your way created in us by Christ. Bless us to recognize that which is created from inside when faced with stress, and the choice we have in what to say. Open our mouth to say good things. We don't deserve goodness, they don't deserve goodness, but for Christ's sake you forgave us Thank you Father!! God bless us each and every one. In Jesus' name amen.
