Death and Life are in the power of the tongue. Prov 18:21 I believe the tongue is a creative power. James 3:5 It is how our Father God Almighty formed all creation as He spoke it into existence. Everything that we speak must be lining up with the Word of God. That is what the scripture tells us in Phil 1:27 . What Paul is saying here is to watch (Guard) our actions of what we speak and do. You know the saying “What would Jesus do?” is a question we should ask at every moment before we say or take action over something. People are watching your every move and especially those who need the Gospel message preached to them, whether by your action or words. We should glorify our Father in Heaven with all of our deeds done. It is not impossible to attain the level of a perfect (mature) place in our walk with the Lord. For it is the will of God for us to come into His fullness of knowledge and love. But you’re not going to get there if you are not guarding your mouth. David had said to the Lord to set a guard over his lips that he might not sin against Him. Psalm 141:3
Before we even open our mouths we must process what we are going to speak. In other words don’t let your natural brain think and act for you. You’ll need to allow the Holy Spirit to have full control over every area. Slow down and listen for His peaceful words. Speak what he gives you to speak and you’ll begin to see victory over what your flesh or natural mind would want to say. Jesus represented this action very well as he only did what He saw and heard the Father doing. John 8:28-29 He was walking in this flesh we live in and still yet He was in direct relationship with His Father and was able to know what He should say or do. Maturity comes in us when we allow the Holy Spirit to search out our hearts and see if there is any wicked way within us and lead us to life everlasting. Psalm 139:23
Extravagant blessings to you from the Holy Spirit!
In the perfect love and peace of Yeshua,
