But no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. James 3:8
may the words that I speak, always encourage, uplift, build up and impart grace to others.
Please let your grace help me to completely sanctify my tongue, in Jesus name.
God wants our tongues to be completely sanctified by the power of the Holy Spirit. The tongue was made to heal, bless, uplift, and encourage. Using the tongue to destroy is offensive.
Controlling the tongue is very difficult but nothing is too hard for God. Simply desire it and surrender the tongue to God for cleansing and purification. Day by day, God will begin to impart and infuse more grace and ability into you.
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.
It is God’s desire for you to be constantly filled with the Holy Spirit. Spend time with God in worship, praise, thanksgiving, petition and Bible reading, and desire the Holy Spirit’s infilling.
Also, crave the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
If you want to be a mature, victorious christian, learn how to spend time with God and be led by the Holy Spirit. Never ignore the work and role of the Holy Spirit in your life. Learn how to depend on the Holy Spirit for light, wisdom, revelation, understanding, direction and help.
Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins. Psalm 7:9
A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher. (Luke 6:40 ESV)
The word of God says that when we are fully trained, we will be like our Master, Jesus. Glory to God. It is not easy but it is possible. This means that we should never give up. We must keep praying for grace to be more like Jesus, everyday. The more we are transformed into the likeness of Christ, the more His light, grace and power manifest through us.
Our God is a God of grace and glory and He never disappoints those who are trusting and persistent. May God’s grace lead us to the place of maturity and spiritual beauty.
Become complete. Be of good comfort. (2 Corinthians 13:11 NKJV)
Finally, brethren, farewell. Become complete. Be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you. (2 Corinthians 13:11 NKJV)
Make sure that your endurance carries you all the way without failing, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. James 1:4
To be complete is to be whole and to get whole is to be holy. This godly reminder is instructing us to become complete. Jesus was complete and Paul was complete. It does not mean that we become perfect the way God is perfect but it means constant desire to please God and being mature in Christ and all the fruits of the Holy Spirit. It means being blameless and keeping our vessels holy as we become vessels of honor. It is possible because the Scripture above is telling us to be complete.
Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. (Hebrews 13:20-21 NKJV)
Only the blood of Jesus can make us clean and complete because it washes away our sins and empowers us with grace to live a godly life. It is not by our own power or might. It is only God that will make us complete through the blood of the everlasting covenant as we desire and pray for all grace from the throne of grace.
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 1 Peter 5:10
All grace is what leads to completeness. May all grace be upon us in Jesus name.
