My Lips Are Sealed

Mtpic“Set a watch, O Lord before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.” Psalm 141:3 (KJV)

 Do you realize that the enemy lays snares before us to trap us? He uses challenging people and difficult circumstances. There are those that try to provoke us and sometimes they are just looking for a wrong reaction in us. When we don’t give it to them, they will finally stop. When we ask God to take control of what we say and keep our lips sealed that becomes our wisdom. No one can fight back with someone who has sealed lips. Remember people who are opposing us want and are looking for a reaction. If someone is in contention or conflict with us, we need to keep the doors of our lips sealed. It takes two people to argue. One person can’t argue by themselves; they need someone else to respond. The wise person will completely guard their lips. They will humbly not respond. Now that takes great self control -a fruit of the Spirit that only God can give us. When we resist the enemy; he has to flee. There are people who make it a way of life to try to steal other people’s joy. Remember no one can steal your joy unless you give them permission. We will remain in our joy if we set a watch over our mouth and keep the door of our lips sealed. Next time someone tries to argue with us, we should avoid responding on their level. They won’t know what to do or say because they can’t keep an argument going, and the enemy will be defeated.

 “O Lord, keep a watch over my mouth, keep the door of my lips. Thank you for self-control, strength, and wisdom. Thank you for victory.”
