OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TEENS MONDAY 14TH MAY 2018: WATCH YOUR WORDS
MEMORISE: Let no corrupt communication
proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister
grace to the hearers. Ephesians 4:29
Please read: Matthew 12:33-37
As a child of God, you must be very careful with the way you use words. If God who is your
Father could create the entire universe by the Word, then you have the power in your mouth to
do and undo.
Proverbs 18:21 says that life and death are in the power of the tongue and
because of this, the words we say go a long way in determining the course of our lives.
How do you use your tongue? Do you say negative things
about yourself or others? Do you slander others
or gossip with your tongue? Stop it! You are actually committing murder with your tongue.
Do you speak abusively towards your friends and
family members? Or do you tell dirty jokes or use swear words? Watch your words! Everything you say with your mouth is being recorded, and will
be judged by Christ.
Your words can bring long life and prosperity to you, or it can bring sorrow and untold hardship to you. Be careful about what you say, how you say it, and who you say it to.
Let your words bring life, not death.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Kings 9-11
1. When we walk with the Lord in the light of His
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will,
He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
2. Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
3. Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.
4.But we never can prove the delights of His
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.
- 5. Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
What He says we will do, where He sends we will
Never fear, only trust and obey.
