Words: Watch where you are pointing them!

2 Words in 1


A word is like a stone cast into a lake, you see the ripple, the effects; can be more than we expected good or bad; but as it sinks to it’s depths, it can never be retrieved.

“We all stumble in many ways.  Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check.  When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal.  Or take ships as an example.  Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go.  Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts.  Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark.  The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body.  It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell,”   James 3:2-6.

“Rumors are dainty morsels that sink deep into one’s heart,”   Proverbs 18:8.

When I posted the other day about how gossip is like a boomerang, the Lord showed me, the boomerang returns because it is bent in the middle.  It’s that ‘bent’ person, the one in the middle, going from this one to that, that needs to be cut out.

“The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.Proverbs 18:21.

Be cautious how you speak to your spouse but also to your children.  Verbal and emotional abuse have longstanding ramifications; even more so than physical abuse.

Severe name calling is a form of verbal abuse as is using sarcasm under the guise of jesting.  Both are evidence of an unhealthy communicator; a form of verbal bullying.

“But I tell you that men will give an account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken,”  Matthew 12:36.

The Lord has been dealing with me so much on this.  I only speak regularly with one person but as a Christian and a woman; we can talk!  For hours!  The word says, “When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent”   Proverbs 10:19  and  “Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout is a beautiful woman who shows no discretion,”   Proverbs 11:22.

I get the visual of ‘many words’ to be like pouring a gallon of water in with a pint of kook-aid. It dilutes it.

The Lord is having me for a time; no unnecessary conversation.

If we want to do what Jesus did, we are going to have to follow His example.  He only spoke what He heard the Father speak!

Using our words being led of Him being about His business.  It’s time to fine tune and sharpen our tongues.

The LORD asked me to do this, as I am on the road driving a lot; to use that time and my words to speak and pray over the people, families, homes, communities, schools, colleges, hospitals, government buildings, businesses, etc., as I am driving through these territories.  I feel prompted to ask you all to do the same.

Many use their car time to catch up on phone calls (which can be dangerous and distracting) or for jamming out to their favorite tunes; the Lord showed me there are so many hours we spend in our vehicles that can be used for His glory.

Pray and stir up the waters so to speak, as you drive.  Pray for salvation of those who live and work there.  Pray against immorality, poverty, etc, for plots and plans of evil to be exposed and thwarted.

Bind up spirits of drug and alcohol addiction, lasciviousness, perversion, abuse, violence, gun violence, domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, etc…  as the Lord reveals; take your authority over these places…

Making the most of your time for the maximum impact on our communities.

Unnecessary conversations

Be careful of unnecessary conversations during your birthing period.  Many non-believing, busy bodies, call and act concerned but are being used to ask, “Did you get your ____ yet?”
“How are you feeling?”

Perhaps they doubt you or doubt themselves and are looking for evidence through you… however; a flag is…

You will notice them trying to pull you into conversations to negate what you’re believing for with your words…

Then they will start grumbling and complaining about their own lives.

That’s okay to shut it down.  You’re not in the same place but in the delivery room (many are there now), the focus is to birth what’s inside of you.

Sorry, if I don’t want to hear you had a flat tire and the Coffee shop didn’t put sugar in your coffee when I am birthing this thing…

Let me get this out and I will come back for you!

I was watching a man on Sid Roth the other night speaking on the legal system of the spirit realm and the Courts of Heaven.  What grabbed my attention was this: He said the accuser of the brethren takes words you have said, words others have said, and brings it before the Judge as to why you are to be found guilty… (or why your prayers should not be answered).

I personally asked the Lord to forgive me for any words I have spoken over myself and loved ones and even repent on their behalf for words they have spoken contrary to the will of God for us.

The accuser of the brethren; doesn’t need any more help.

Stop volunteering your mouth!

So if you don’t see me pick up or respond; don’t take it personally, I just got to keep it moving…

There is a time and season and I know we are to carry one another’s burdens… so do this…
*Birth the baby; then show them.  When you’ve crossed over; go tell and show them how to themselves.”

  1. about unnecessary conversations… The Lord has been speaking to me about the very same thing. I’ve asked for Him to keep a guard over my mouth… And I pray that I will have a quieter spirit and speak from a well of wisdom rather than a multitude of words.  please keep me in your prayers

  2. I have learned the same from the Lord and daily I proclaim this over my mouth;
    “I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me,” Psalm 39:1.
