Billy Graham Devotions 11 March 2020 – The Power of Speech
TODAY’S TOPIC: THE POWER OF SPEECH
SCRIPTURE: Submit yourselves therefore to God . . . — James 4:7
THE MESSAGE: You have a tongue and a voice. These instruments of speech can be used destructively or employed constructively. You can use your tongue to slander, to gripe, to scold, to nag, and to quarrel; or you can bring it under the control of God’s Spirit and make it an instrument of blessing and praise.
The 20th-century version of James 3:3 says, “When we put bits into the horses’ mouths to make them obey us, we control the rest of their bodies also.” Just so, when we submit to the claims of Christ upon our lives, our untamed natures are brought under His control. We become meek, tamed, and “fit for the Master’s service.”
Prayer for the day – Billy Graham Devotions 11 March 2020
I would be under Your control, Lord Jesus Christ. Take away the pride that keeps me from complete submission.
