Controlling the Tongue
by Dr. Larry Ollison
 
        

James 1:26 says, “If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless.”

 

Your mouth can cause you to make your religion useless. You can go to church every week and be a Bible scholar, but if your mouth is speaking envy, strife, and hatred, your mouth will cause your religion to be worthless.

 

You do not access the spirit realm and the throne of God with your religion. You access the spirit realm and the throne of God with your words of faith.

 

Second Corinthians 4:13 says, “And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, ‘I believed and therefore I spoke,’ we also believe and therefore speak.”

 

The spirit of faith operates this way. You believe it, and you speak it. You will speak what you really believe. That is why it is so important to watch the words of your mouth and the meditations of your heart (Psalm 19:14).

 

Let me tell you about an incident I saw. A Christian lady approached another Christian lady for prayer. She prayed what appeared to be a prayer of faith. A few moments later I heard the lady who prayed tell another person that the lady she had just prayed for was in great pain and needed to be healed. She also told that person to continue praying so that the lady would be healed.

 

This is a great example of how a prayer can appear to be in faith, but not be. Faith is in the heart and the mouth. A confession or prayer without belief in the heart is not a faith confession or a prayer of faith. A positive confession is good, but a confession of faith is where the power is.

 

Did you follow what happened here? A few minutes ago, this sister had prayed for this lady to be healed in the name of Jesus. The Word says, if we pray in faith, we are to believe we have received what we prayed for. But within moments, her confession was that the lady she prayed for was in a lot of pain and still needed healing. Without saying it directly, she confessed that healing had not taken place.

 

What does this mean? It means when it came down to it, the person who was praying didn’t really believe in her heart that God had done what she prayed for Him to do. Out of the abundance of her heart, her mouth eventually spoke.

 

If we aren’t careful, we could find ourselves doing the same thing. What we say we are believing for, we could unconsciously deny with our own words. When we are believing for something, we may be affirming and confirming our faith one moment and later denying it by the way we use our words.

 

The devil very subtly tempts us to use our words to nullify our faith. God wants us to agree with the Word, but the devil wants us to agree with his lies. Align your words with His word and see the miracle power of God.

I really love this post OP, and be more aware to align my words with my core belief, and vice versa.
