Memory Monday – Week 103
Today I am sharing a verse that has been coming up in conversation over and over, Matthew 12:34, which says, “For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks”.
The words you speak reflect what is in your heart. Are you words full of bitterness, anger, and hurt, or are they filled with life, hope, peace, and love? The best way to know how you are doing emotionally is to pay attention to your conversations and what you speak.
If you have been storing up anger for years and years, it will reflect in your words. You don’t have to be bound to your past, but you can find complete forgiveness and freedom. Allow the Lord to heal your heart, which will in turn heal your words too!
This verse reminds me of Proverbs 23:7, “For as he thinks in his heart, is what he really is.” Your thoughts are not only who you are, but they turn into what or who you will become. You can’t think negative thoughts and expect breakthrough or victory.
If you want to work on what comes out of your mouth, remember it all starts at the heart! Spend time meditating on God’s word which is full of hope. When you hear and study His word, life and faith abounds. What words are you choosing to speak today?
