In the world we are living, vulgarity is the norm. People cannot seem to engage in normal conversation anymore without injecting profanity. While the world believes it is okay and those of us who have a problem with it should just “get over it”, foul language opens the door to a spirit of brokenness.
King Solomon wrote these words, recorded in Proverbs 15:4, “A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit”.
Do you not realize that every time you open your mouth and something perverse is on your tongue, a spirit of brokenness is released; not only into the life of the person whom you are cursing, but into your life as well. If perversity is on your tongue, it is seeping into your body and your spirit. You are retaining everything you are sending forth.
I do not know to whom I am speaking through this message today, but you may wonder why there is so much brokenness in your life. It is because the perverseness of your own tongue—your filthy mouth—has broken relationships, broken opportunities, broken respect, broken covenants, and broken blessings. As you curse at others, that which you have spewed is still on your tongue, causing breakage and damage in your own spirit.
However, you have a choice. You can do something about your “oral hygiene”.
From this day forward, instead of asking God for a “check in the mail”, ask God to give you a “wholesome tongue”.
Clean up your mouth, and you will be amazed how quickly the spirit of brokenness will disappear and things will begin to come together!
Your breakthrough is in your mouth!
