Shut That Mouth

17 May

Shut That Mouth…

We think of possession as in the Exorcist, a movie about a girl whose head spins around, or of the guy who lives in tombs and scares people.

There’s another kind of possession that’s just as real. The kind that takes place even with believers when we give the enemy a place in our lives by acting with sinful motives, or speaking words of destruction; gossip.

Then the enemy can spread destruction, not only in us, but through us. We offer ourselves to be used for the enemy’s purposes when we allow ourselves to be controlled by bitterness, pride, and selfishness.

Peter loved God, but he allowed himself to be used by the enemy. He rebuked Jesus and told him not to go to Jerusalem. Jesus said, “Get behind me Satan.”

When we allow ourselves to be used by the enemy to tear down, hinder, discourage, or harm, we’re allowing ourselves to be possessed for his purposes.

It’s not just people whose head spins around, it’s when you let yourself be used. Reject the slightest hint of possession. Be moved only by the Spirit; you are God’s possession.

Set a guard over my mouth, Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips. Do not let my heart be drawn to what is evil so that I take part in wicked deeds along with those who are evildoers; do not let me eat their delicacies. Psalm 131:3-4

Guard your mouth today, let it speak uplifting and of praise, allow the Holy Spirit to move through you.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
