What's Holding You From An Incredible Life? It's Not What You Think!

7 Oct. 2013
Everyone wants to move ahead and accomplish something with their lives.
They want to be somebody, be at some place better, feel happier or change some part of the world. Live an incredible life! Unknown to many, the 'D' factor is holding them back.

The 'D' factor is the 'Defilement' factor.
To defile means to make unclean, a corrupting element. Many things can cause defilement, but the chief cause of defilement is that little muscle in our body called the tongue. All muscle and all mischief. It sets the direction of one's life. It is like the rudder of a ship. Small but huge in influence. 

James the brother of Jesus describes it as untamable. Yes, we are dealing with the untamable beast. It has held back success, damaged lives, divided partnerships and murdered dreams.
The tongue is naturally negative. The tongue cuts, curses and condemns. It releases a toxin that poisons and imprisons the hearer and the speaker. 

Do a check up on your words......I cannot make it; I am not good enough; I can't do it; life is not fair; he is *#+?; she is *#+?; it is her fault; I want to punch ........ - if these words and other negatives make up the major portion of your communication, your tongue is defiling you, damaging you and destroying you. Your tongue is making you sick and weak. A negative tongue is stealing your success right under your nose.

"But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart,* and these make a man ‘unclean.' For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. These are what make a man ‘unclean';* but eating with unwashed hands does not make him ‘unclean.'”  - Jesus in  Matthew 15:18-20

Stop right now and reverse the damage.
Command your tongue before it commands you.
Change your words to change your life.
Words have creative power.
Positive words creates positive environments and positive feelings.
Positive words give out energy and life.
Positive words invigorates, sparks enthusiasm and releases strength.
God spoke this world into being. He spoke and it was created.

Speak words of faith, blessings, encouragement, hope, possibilities and power.
Confess the word of God. Measure your words with His word.
With God's help, God's Word and following God's pattern of speech, you can tame the untamable beast to serve you to live an incredible life.

Your rise in life is determined by your level of praise you release into life.
