    SCRIPTURE: “Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.” – Proverbs 21:23 (KJV)

    If you cannot control your tongue, it is only a matter of time before you talk yourself into destruction. Hidden behind the need to always talk is the need to be noticed – the need to get everyone’s attention, and that alone is enough to destroy anyone.

    In today’s text, we read about the young man who just wanted to get unnecessary attention. He formulated a story that he thought would impress David, telling him that he had killed Saul, not knowing that his quest for attention would be his undoing. 2 Samuel 1:16 says:

    And David said unto him, Thy blood be upon thy head; for thy mouth hath testified against thee, saying, I have slain the LORD’s anointed.

    Believe me honestly, the less you talk, the better for you, because everything you are saying is being recorded and will be played back on the day of judgment. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 12:36, “But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.”

    I was at a meeting with some big men of God and there was one fellow there who talked and talked to such an extent that I said, “Sir, you think you know more than every one of us? If you would just keep quiet, you might learn something.” Wise people listen more than they speak because they know that the more they understand, the better the value of what they say. James 1:19 says that you must be quick to hear and slow to speak.

    In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise. – Proverbs 10:19

    Controlling your tongue is a major key to living holy. May your tongue not take you to hell, in Jesus’ name.

    Open Heaven 16 April 2023 PRAYER POINT:

    Father, please give me the grace to control my tongue at all times, in Jesus’ name.
