Psalm 141:3 (ESV) Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!
Beloved, listen to My Spirit’s direction over the words that you speak. Stay sensitive to My leading. For your words have more power than you begin to understand, and they must be treated with care.
Refuse to allow your mouth to be a vessel of death – for the power of life and death is in your tongue. So choose carefully, beloved. Choose life. Therefore, weigh each word to determine the fruit that it will bear – refusing to indulge your flesh, instead choosing life and the fruits of My Spirit.
Proverbs 18:21 (NIV) The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
