He Will Count Every Idle Word that Your Tongue Speaks

After a time of prayer with a group of intercessions, the Word that came forth was “rudder”. A rudder is a small mechanism on a boat. It controls the direction of the boat.

TongueAfter the woman shared a scripture of James 3:4 I kept it on my heart to pray on it. I know that God has told me to be the example. I know that He has given me a platform and people are watching and reading…those who are for Him and I and those who are against Him and I.

So, of course I had a dream. I was at my job and business was good! There was a man that I know his face but can’t remember his name. I believe in dreams names are important so I am praying God will remind me of his name. Anyway, he was dressed as a police officer. When we saw each other we both were happy to see each other and embraced. He told me he needed to buy one of my products so I showed him what I had. Once he picked what he wanted we went into the office and I started the sale. During the purchase procedure, I started to talk….a lot. I wrote down in my journal that I was pouring my heart out to him and he politely listened. But I also wrote that in my dream I asked myself “why are you talking so much about nothing. Finish the sale.”

I don’t know about you but my heart just leaped!

This morning in my devotion time I came across a scripture Proverbs 10:10. The later part says “but a prating fool will fall.” What does prating mean? Glad you asked 😊 A prating fool is someone who has foolish chatter, talks too much, idle talk that causes divisions and heresy.
Ouch! Yea, God was showing me since 2 Fridays ago that I (WE ALL) need to be careful of what we say.

The tongue is like the rudder on a boat. It controls where we go. This little muscle has SO MUCH CONTROL y’all! Jesus even says in Matthew 12:36-37 But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.  For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

Thank the Lord for the Holy Spirit that guides us in everything we say and do. I love His correction and pray that your Heart does too. If not, check your heart today…. Ask Him to show you where you need to give Him control of. Correction may not feel good but it’s worth it… They are Watching! #BeTheExample

Read James 3:4-12
