Do you know how powerful your tongue is? 😛

In James 3:2, God says that even though we all stumble in many ways, if we don’t stumble in word, we are perect men and able to BRIDLE our WHOLE BODY. 💪🏼

In Verse 3 He also compares our tongue to the bits we place in a horse’s mouth. 🐴

What does a bit and bridle do?

A bit and bridle steers the horse and makes it obey us. It controls the direction the horse goes in. The bit and bridle direct the horse to start moving and also let it know when it to stop. ✋🏼

Just like a bit and bridle, we control our bodies with our WORDS. 🗣

When we speak negative words, words that agree with the symptoms, and idle words such as, “That makes me sick, that kills me, I’m sick and tired of…, I’m losing my mind”, etc. we are dropping the reins and allowing our bodies to follow the direction of our negative words. (Matthew 12:36) 😬

But GOD’S WORD in our mouth is the bit and bridle that will bring our bodies back into line. 🗣📖

🗣 God’s Word in our mouth will take control over any part of our body that isn’t functioning correctly, and rein it back into line. We say, “Body, you are functioning perfectly. In you there is life and no death!” (Mark 11:23-24)

🗣 God’s Word in our mouth will steer our bodies away from bad habits and behaviours and help us to avoid them completely. We say, “I walk in the spirit and I do not fulfil the lusts of the flesh!” (Galatians 5:16)

🗣 God’s Word in our mouth will steer our personality and character and bring them into line with who God made us to be. We say, “I demonstrate the fruit of the Spirit with everyone I come into contact with!” (Galatians 5:22)

🗣 God’s Word in our mouth will direct us into His perfect plan for our lives. It will tell us where to go, when to go, how fast to go, and when to stop. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

Take control over your body by picking up the reins and ONLY saying what God says and you will be PERFECT, complete, lacking in nothing! 😍🙌🏼🙏🏼
