The Give-Up Season series
Control Your Tongue!
As Jesus starts to prepare His disciples for His departure, his disciple Peter decides to rebuke Jesus and got told! Jesus saw through Peter and spoke to the spirit urging the act. Hold bold, how challenging, to think or even consider to that you can tell Jesus what to do? The impulse to speak without thinking is not uncommon even today. Have you ever been felt embarrassed by a rash decision or thought yourself one inch tall as a result of a passionately inspired self-inflected nonsense? Most actions of embarrassment can be avoided if we would take the time to consider our actions before we commit. During this season of Lent take a moment before speaking on a heated situation or making a move that we would to have repent for.
Matthew 16: 22-23 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
Holy God (Joshua 24:19), how excellent is Thy Name above the earth and we thank You because You still love us. Because we are non-deserving and unworthy, You thought us worth saving, we give You the upmost praise. We decree and declare blessings with uplifted hands and bended knees upon the people who pause at every moment to speak joy of gratefulness, so that as we submit our flesh to Your Will, we live through the acts we do in Your Name. For the sake of the Kingdom we pray, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
