GET CONTROL OF YOUR MOUTH

James 3:2 For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.

 

Speaking in other tongues helps us enjoy the benefit of a controlled tongue. James tells us of these benefits. For we all stumble in many ways. If anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body as well. Now if we put bits into the horses’ mouths so that they will obey it, we can direct their entire body. Look at the ships also, though they are so great and are driven by strong winds, are still directed by a very small rudder wherever the inclination of the pilot desires. So also the tongue is a small part of the body. James 3:2-5 compares the human tongue to a bit that we put into a horse’s mouth to control its body and a rudder that steers a ship, directing the course of its destiny. The tongue directs our lives, but it also bridles our bodies. The tongue affects the human body. There is a connection between our tongue and our brain, and between our tongue and our nervous system. Neurologists have identified a connection between what is said and the signals that the brain sends to the rest of the nervous system. The Bible says that the tongue bridles the body. When we begin to pray in the Holy Spirit, we are yielding our tongue totally to God. We are not in control of it anymore, saying what we want to say or what our minds have thought up. Rather, we are saying what the Holy Spirit is saying through us. Our tongue is totally yielded to God. God is then able to bridle our bodies. It is as if He gets on the horse and begins to ride. He then directs our lives in the paths they should go. A wild horse doesn’t accomplish much, but a horse that has been trained and bridled can go out and accomplish something! When you pray in the Holy Spirit, you bridle yourself. God is able to take hold of the reins of your life and bridle your body. The blessing is: He brings life and Healing to your body. He brings soundness to your mind and discipline to your life! He obtains control of your life because the tongue is the key to that control. Think about how someone is saved. He confesses with his mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believes in his heart that God raised Him from the dead (see Rom. 10:9-10). We have to say it, “I accept Christ as my Lord and Savior. Jesus, You are my Lord.” We yield our tongue and praise God in the Holy Spirit, constantly turning over the lordship to Jesus Christ. Praying in the Holy Spirit is saying, “Lord, ride me, direct me, steer the course of my life.” And God wants to! He wants to bless you with all that He has for you. He can do that when you yield your tongue to Him!

  2. I don’t see it quite that way. In my eyes we can do his will or not. It doesn’t feel like some one takes control of a mindless beast to me! We come to love the Lord and that’s our motivation! Although it is him doing it through my members. We must remember that we are created in Gods image! Thank you my Lord Jesus Christ!

  3. For the last 2 weeks,as I am driving running my errands,I have begun to speak in tongues,via the Holy Spirit. At first I was self aware of other drivers. But now,it doesn’t bother me. Thank the lord Jesus for sending the comforter. The Holy Spirit.
