Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word – it tells you the truth. God’s truth, the only truth, and exposes false… anything different than what God says. I love that God’s Word has people who share exactly what we’re feeling sometimes. Psalms 39:1 – I said, “I will watch my ways and keep my tongue from sin. I will put a muzzle on my mouth as long as the wicked are in my presence. But when I was silent, not even saying anything good, my anguish increased, my heart grew hot within me and as I meditated the fire burned: Then I spoke with my tongue.” It’s interesting what He says next - not what you would think. Have you ever decided to do better? To keep your tongue from sin? Sometimes our attempts at righteousness are insufficient. Good intentions, but incomplete wisdom. You don’t keep your tongue from sinning by not saying anything. You keep your tongue from sinning, by saying the right thing… so often… that when something else comes out – its awkward, out of place. It just doesn’t fit with who you are becoming – more like Christ. So yes, keep a muzzle on your mouth, guard your tongue and you’ll guard your life. But know that you overcome sin, not by your intention, but by the power of the Holy Spirit in you - choosing that grace to say no to sin, choosing the way out that God always provides. And more important saying and doing what God just told you to do. What you say is what you get. So if you are speaking the Word of God, the promise of God, and the command of God, committing yourself to it, and trusting Him to bless it, your life will become very different than it was before. Praise God. He has good for you along the way – on the path He has chosen for you – the best path. Praying that PiVAT before dinner is that non-negotiable where you are constantly getting His plans for you for tomorrow, helping you finish strong what He told you today, and remembering the testimony of what He does when you obey! He will bless you every chance he gets – but the more you walk in His will for you – the more chances are created for His blessing to flow. What He longs to do in your life, He delights in your well-being. Praying that you will speak life and truth, and your commitment to walk in His ways. Praying that PRISM is changing your mind, and your words, and your results – it happens every time.
