Psalm 52:1-4 – Why do you boast in evil, O mighty man?
The lovingkindness of God endures all day long.
Your tongue devises destruction,
Like a sharp razor, O worker of deceit.
You love evil more than good,
Falsehood more than speaking what is right.
You love all words that devour,
O deceitful tongue.

I have a reputation of emphasizing the heavenly language; some would say I overemphasize it. One of the reasons praying in tongues is so important to me is that so much of the talking you hear today is not pleasant and is often quite filthy. Jesus taught us that our words come straight from the overflow of our heart. Staying filled with God and allowing the overflow of His love to pour out of us in His heavenly love language could only be good. One of the purposes is for the love of God that flows out of us to be a corporate thing that brings us more and more into a place of harmony with God, His church, and His creation. Creation is waiting for God’s kingdom to be suddenly unveiled on earth, I want to be waiting for that as well. Here is how GREGORY OF NAZIANZUS: describes this passage.

“The old confusion of tongues was beneficial when people, who were of one language in wickedness and impiety, just as some still are, were building the tower. But by the confusion of their language, the unity of their intention was broken up and their undertaking destroyed. Much more worthy of praise is the present miraculous unity of language [at Pentecost]. Being poured from one Spirit on many people, it brings them again into harmony. And there is a diversity of gifts, which stands in need of yet another gift to discern which is the best, where all are praiseworthy. That division also might be called noble of which David says, “Confuse the wicked, O Lord, confound their speech.” Why? Because “you love every harmful word, O you deceitful tongue!” Here he very expressly indicts the tongues of the present day that sever the Godhead.”

Our society is heading into uncharted territory in the days ahead. The supernatural nature of our Christian faith is becoming more and more essential so that we are not consumed. The Lord purifies our heart as well as our tongue as we wait on Him and allow His presence to flood us more and more as we move into uncharted territories it is essential that we move in the power of the Holy Spirit.

  1. I love the example of David’s prayer in Psalms 19:14 TPT “So may the words of my mouth, my meditation-thoughts, and every movement of my heart be always pure and pleasing, acceptable before your eye’s, my only Redeemer, my protector-God.”
