What You Profess With Your Mouth

Bro. D.G.S Dhinakaran

At times, we are so impulsive that we speak not knowing the repercussions. Later, when we realise that we should not have uttered such words, we blame our circumstances for our impulsive nature. That’s why the Bible reminds us that “The tongue has the power of life and death and those who love it will eat its fruit” (Proverbs 18:21).

Jesus was anointed to preach the good tidings to the poor. The Bible says “Pleasant words are as honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and healing to the bones”(Proverbs 16:24). Jesus always spoke words of grace and comfort. One day a man affected with palsy was brought to Jesus. The Bible says “Man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7). Jesus knew about his past life and found that this man was sick because of his own sin. When He saw this man, the heart of Jesus was broken. Great compassion came within him. Nobody wanted this man as he sank in sin, and now disabled. Jesus spoke “Son, your sins are forgiven”, which were words of grace. That man was healed at that very moment. Yes! Our Lord Jesus Christ was sent to preach good tidings of peace, words of grace and words of mercy.

Jesus never came into this world to condemn man. He came to heal the sick and deliver from the powers of the evil one. Words of grace and comfort are spoken when we are filled with His Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ was born of the spirit and so whatever He spoke, was done accordingly. According to the Bible, whatever you say shall be done to you as “it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved” (Romans 10:10). If you confess that by His stripes you are healed, then you will be healed. On the contrary, if you murmur and complain of your sickness, then you are prolonging your healing. Similarly, if you faced any hardship and became a victim of self-pity, then you can never get out of that situation. But if you confess that “I am more than a conqueror”, you will surely be victorious. Not only that, when you speak words of promise to other people, they too will be blessed. So, be careful of what you speak!
Loving Father, I seek Your grace to speak very cautiously. Help me claim Your unfailing promises even in my darkest hour. You alone can deliver me and grant me victory over my problems. May my words be pleasing and comforting to people around me and may they know Your love through me! 

In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen
