Bridle Your Tongue

James 1:26

If anyone thinks himself to be religious, and yet does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this man’s religion is worthless.

To walk by faith you must believe in your heart what God’s Word says, but if you deceive your own heart you won’t have faith in God. James tells us we must deal with our tongue to keep from deceiving our hearts. If we speak contrary to God’s Word we convince our heart God’s Word is not true, which is deception. How do we change our words?

We must change our thinking for our thoughts will determine what we believe, and what we believe will come out of our mouth. There are three primary influences that wrongly affect our thinking. They are observation, association, and falsification. Observation means what we look to or focus on. If we spend our time watching T. V. and movies for example that are filled with sex and violence and lies, this will begin to cause us to believe those things are ok, but this deception will lead to wrong thinking.

The second thing that leads to deception in the heart are associations. Scripture teaches us to choose our friends carefully for even the wicked will lead you astray. The wrong friends will cause you to be deceived. The third area is falsification, which refers to false teachings from God’s Word where people are not taught the truth but are taught man-made religion instead. Many today don’t believe in the promises we have been given through Christ, for they were taught such things passed away.

So to guard your heart from deception you must address observations, associations, and falsifications. Right thinking leads to right believing, right believing leads to right speaking, and right speaking will bring right results in your life.

Find Your Real Identity

Hebrews 9:24

For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us;…

When God breathed into Adam the breath of life the first thing Adam saw was the face of God. This is were man’s identity came from, his Creator. When Adam sinned the bible says he hid himself from the presence of God, which that word means the face of God. Man now looked to the creation turning away from the Father for his identity. He could not see God’s face. But Jesus did something about that.

Hebrews 9:24 tells us Jesus went before the presence (face) of God for us. Jesus provided the way for us to find our value and worth again from our Father, our Creator, and not the creation. When you are trying to find you worth in life through things or other people, you will never be fulfilled, for we were designed by God to find our worth by identifying with Him.

How do we see His face today? Look to God’s Word, for Jesus is the Word made flesh, especially looking to the New Testament which tells you who you now are in Christ. Jesus said if you have seen Me, you have seen the Father. You are a new creation, more than a conqueror, etc. So don’t look to the things of this life nor people to find your worth, look to your Creator by looking to His Word.

A Better Covenant With Better Promises

Hebrews 8:6

But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, by as much as He is also the mediator of a better covenant, which has been enacted on better promises.

Under the Old Testament the children of Israel were given the promise of God’s provision, healing, protection, and more. We don’t have any less available to us then they had, for we have a better covenant with even better promises, not less. The promises we have been given in the new covenant are based on what Christ has done for us, not what we have done. We receive these promises by faith in Christ Jesus, the One who shed His blood to purchase every promise.

One of the keys to faith is no longer seeing what we have in Christ as a promise for that would put it off into the future, but a purchased possession. Faith takes what we have been given a promise of and sees it as a present day reality, for faith brings everything into the present tense. “Now” faith is. Faith is of the heart for man believes in his heart and confession is made unto what God has said. We are simply agreeing with God that we have what Christ has purchased for us.

Feed on the Word until it becomes real to your inner man. You need to take the promises of God found in the New Testament and continue to meditate on those truths declaring to yourself that they are yours now. You need to see them by the eye of faith as already a part of your life. Choose to walk by faith not by sight, seeing God’s promises as a present day reality and you can receive all that God has provided for you through Christ Jesus.

Be A Doer of The Word

James 1:25

25 But the one who peers into the perfect law of liberty and fixes his attention there, and does not become a forgetful listener but one who lives it out – he will be blessed in what he does.

Do you desire to be blessed in what you do? You can, but the key is looking into God’s perfect law of liberty (His Word), and you fix you attention on it taking the time to hear it preached, and if you live out what you hear you will be blessed. What a powerful promise from God. God’s Word is filled with the life of God. The life of God is all God is, and all He has.

You must make giving your attention to God’s truth a priority. That means His Word is what you are looking to, that you may learn how to live this life God has provided for you. If you are fixing your attention on the Word, you are doing so because you desire to adapt your life to that Word. Many today hear the Word preached but not with a focus to conform to what they hear, but instead to just fulfill in their minds a duty to God.

When your hearts desire is to conform to God’s truth, then you are not a forgetful hearer, because you are completely conforming yourself to what you have heard. You desire to look like the Word of God. A doer of the Word is one whose desire is to let Jesus live through them, for He is the Word who was made flesh. So a true doer of God’s Word makes it their lifestyle, not picking and choosing what they may or may not want to do. As they do so they will live a blessed life, walking in divine favor.

Hold Fast Your Confession

Hebrews 4:14

Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.

When Jesus ascended into heaven He fulfilled all that was needed for us to be victorious here on earth. One of the major keys to walking in victory is holding fast to a faith filled confession. Consistently confess who you are, what you have, and what you can do in Christ. To hold fast to your confession means to keep saying the same thing.

Proverbs 18:21 tells us that death and life are in the power of the tongue, therefore what you consistently confess, you will possess. Your words are carriers of seeds sown. Whatever a man sows, that he will reap. James chapter 3 tells us that our tongue is like a rudder on a ship, and that rudder determines the direction our life will take.

The key to changing your confession is in what you are feeding on. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. So feed on God’s Word, hold fast to a confession of faith, and you can watch your life change for the better as you speak in line with God’s Word, for you are speaking Words of life.
