Your Mouth And Your Destiny
"And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without fault before the throne of God." Revelation 14:5 NKJV
Apostle James said something very important in James 3:2; he said, "For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body."
You can immediately see from the above how important it is to be mindful of the things we say with our mouths, and how our words are affecting our destinies. It is safe to say that a man's mouth will send him to either heaven or hell. Revelations 14:5 says that people were deemed to be faultless because there was no deceit found in their mouths!
A man's words are a reflection of his true spiritual condition. Nothing reveals who a man really is like his words. There are people who have been discovered after acting nicely in public when the words they spoke in secret were exposed. Jesus said that, "A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things." (Matthew 12:35). How does he bring forth the good or evil things? Through his mouth; for out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.
