Insights from Psalm 141:3


Psalm 141:3 NLT

says:


Take control of what I say, O Lord,

and

guard my lips.


~ ~ ~


The above verse is a short prayer

that would be a

wise choice

for a prayer

that we pray often.

-

As we pray this verse,

we are actually asking God to whisper to us

when we are about to say something

we shouldn't say.

AND

we are implying that we will listen to God

and not speak

when we hear God nudging us to be silent.



Our Loving Heavenly Father

wants us

to

~ ~ ~ WELCOME ~ ~ ~

his voice.



If we often

ignore the voice of God

in an area of our life,

he will

- at some point -

begin to reduce his

guidance and conviction in that area.






The words in Psalm 141:3

encourage us

to wisely

ask

God for help

and then

listen and obey when God speaks.



Psalm 63

gives us another insight from the Word of God.

-

Psalm 63:1a says:

"O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee."


~ ~ ~ Early will I seek thee ~ ~ ~


If we want to have the maximum success in our day

with

guarding our tongue & other self-control issues,

we need to

seek help from God early in the day.
