Apostle Grace Lubega
1 Peter 3:10 (KJV); For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile
If you wish to enjoy your life and see good days, you ought to refrain your tongue from evil, and your lips from guile.
The Message Bible version of our theme scripture says, “Whoever wants to embrace life and see the day fill up with good, Here’s what you do: SAY NOTHING EVIL or hurtful.”
Evil in this case includes that which is CONTRARY to the WORD OF GOD.
You create the good in your days by the words you speak!
The Word of God tells us that, “A man shall eat good by the FRUIT OF HIS MOUTH: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence.”(Proverbs 13:2).
Hannah understood this principle when she prayed to the Lord in 1 Samuel 2:1.
She said, “My heart rejoiceth in the LORD, mine horn is exalted in the LORD: MY MOUTH IS ENLARGED over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation.”
Hannah knew how to speak big! Learn to SPEAK the Word of God over your life every day!
Even in the face of adversity, “ENLARGE YOUR MOUTH”.
Never let your confessions succumb to the provoking wiles of the devil because to keep your mouth from speaking evil is to guard your life. Glory to God!

PRAYER: Heavenly father, I thank you for this word. It is working in my life. I thank you because my mouth speaks truth. I refuse to speak corruption in the name of Jesus. My mouth ministers grace to all my hearers and is purified by the word of your grace. I rehearse every good thing that I know of you. I praise you God because by this wisdom, I shall enjoy goodness all the days of my life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
