Have you ever said, “Please Lord, help get me through this day. I don’t think I can take much more of this.”
Perhaps you were physically tired or mentally exhausted. . .but for whatever reason. . . you’re ready to close the books on this particular day.
On a spiritual dimension. . .if you’ve felt or ever feel that way don’t say it for several reasons.
First, your words can empower the enemy to continue tormenting your day.
The Word of God tells us that our words have consequences . . . we decide whether they are for good or for evil.
Proverbs 18:20 in the Good News Translation says:
“You will have to live with the consequences of everything you say.”
Think about that. . . and the depth of impact within that verse.
“<<YourName>> will have to live with the consequences of everything <<he/she>> says.”
Have you ever said something you wish you hadn’t said and you knew it just as soon as the words came out of your mouth?
