The Power of Our Words Part 3

Sunday October 7, 2012

(There was a baptismal service for four young ladies.) Text: James 3:1. Be careful with your words and control them. Think before you speak. Your words control your whole body. We should love the principle of our words changing things to the point that we can control our body. You can’t trust your thoughts or your emotions, because they can be manipulated. Pastor Dale shares an experience when he used Scripture to change his depressive thoughts and also, when a Congressional aide said the Lord’s Prayer and was able to resist an addictive sin. Confess God’s Word- it’s alive! Check what you’re meditating on before you go to bed and when you wake up, and you’ll know where you are. You can pull down strongholds in your mind and cast down imaginations (2 Cor. 10:3-5). Speak Eph. 1:4-6 with your name in it. Phil. 4:6-8 tells us not to worry but to pray, supplicate, and give thanksgiving in our prayer requests. It also tells us what to think on. Use the Word to shut your mind up when your thoughts are not good.
