TWO CRUCIAL RUDDER 7



“He who loves purity of heart, and whose speech is gracious, will have the king as his friend” 

Proverbs 22:11 (ESV)



This is the code to walk in greatness.

To steer your life to the highest level of greatness, you must be conscious of how you steer these two crucial rudder:

– THE MIND or HEART

– AND THE TONGUE

It takes a man who loves the purity of heart and is gracious in speech to have the king as his friend.

The king will associate himself with the mature. And it is the direction of your thoughts and the dexterity of speech which defines your maturity.

“For we all stumble in many ways. And if anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle his whole body.” James 3:2 (ESV)

To be a perfect man in this context means to be a matured man. Anyone who has mastery of the tongue and knows how to speak or tame the tongue will excel in every place.

You must be intentional about how you think and also your words.  Let the Word (Wisdom) of God saturate your mind or heart and your speech.

Don’t speak as you feel, speak what is right.

Truth is not how you think, truth is how God wants you to think.

There are people whose speeches are full of ungraciousness, impolite, arrogance, pride, and dishonor, and will claim they are being truthful. Truth is always spoken in humility of heart and speech.

If you are truly humble at heart, you will speak with humility. If you are gracious at heart your speech will be gracious.

Your words are the description of your mindset. The mouth will speak what is in the heart.

As we looked at the Psalm 45:2:
 
“You are the most handsome of all. Gracious words stream from your lips. God himself has blessed you forever” (NLT)

David as a king did not use his royalty to become rude and boastful in his speech. He was gracious.

I explained previously that, to speak graciously, also means to speak kindly and politely. It means to speak an attractive speech that is impressively articulated and fitting for the occasion.
This is not about making a faith declaration but knowing how to address situations and people through wisdom.

When you learn to speak right, you avoid unnecessary conflicts and even stagnation. Some people have lost great opportunities because of how they think and how impolite they are in speech.

Let grace be poured on your lips.

Even our Lord, Jesus was gracious in His speech.

“Everyone spoke well of him and was amazed by the gracious words that came from his lips. “How can this be?” they asked. “Isn’t this Joseph’s son?” Luke 4:22 (NLT)

Jesus at every given time had the right answers to the most difficult questions.

Beloved, let gracious words proceed out of your mouth. Let your tongue be soaked with wisdom.

“The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of those who are taught, that I may know how to sustain with a word him who is weary. Morning by morning he awakens; he awakens my ear to hear as those who are taught.” Isaiah 50:4 (ESV)

It is not only your mind which must be given to training. Your tongue must be taught to be skilled at speech.

The Lord through His Word and the voice of the Holy Spirit teaches you to speak before kings.

The Lord said to Moses, “Now go! I will help you as you speak, and I will teach you what to say” (Exodus 4:12)

Your communication (speech or writing) skills will enable you to harness relationships and accomplish success.

You can attract kings and greatness when you master these two crucial rudders.

Think right, and speak graciously.

This is how you steer your life to glorious accomplishments.

Hallelujah!

DIG DEEPER
(Matthew 10:19; Proverbs 22:12; Ecclesiastes 10:12; Proverbs 16:13; Luke 21:15; Zephaniah 3:9)
 
WE PRAY
We pray that the Lord shall train our hearts to reason his thoughts and our lips shall be equipped with wisdom to know what to say at any given point of time.
 
BIBLE READING IN THE YEAR 2024
Isaiah 9 – 12
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
My tongue is saturated with grace, therefore I only speak gracious words.
 
I excel in speech with the right words in and out of season.
 
It doesn’t matter the challenge at a particular time, I speak right.
 
– My tongue is soaked with wisdom.
 
– Only gracious words proceed out of my mouth.

– I think right and I speak graciously.
 
Oh Hallelujah!

We'd love to connect with you!

To help you build a proper foundation of spiritual understanding.

The opening verse alone of today’s episode ministers much to me. I’ve had the opportunity to walk with people and experience people at different time frame. However, one of the ways I weigh the level of maturity of anyone I relate with, is their skill in communication and their composure in articulations, either written or vocalized. Jesus said “that which defile a man is not what he takes in but what comes out of him”. Until we consciously become one with this truth; relationships cannot be healthy, peace may not thrive, friendship and unity shall not stand, team work will definitely yield no profit.

“The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom, and his tongue talks of Justice” Psalm 37:30

” My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding” Psalm 49:3

A man that knows how to communicate and knows the right word to say in every occasion is granted the chance to be among elites example Elihu in Jobs context he spoke with all humility and deep wisdom
But wasn’t in haste to say anything but first studied the occasions then later came all out.
