Drawing of an old old Roman Doorway.
Psalm 141 verse 3
Set a guard over my mouth,
Keep watch over the door of my lips.
Sometimes I think it is a good thing to ask The LORD to put a guard over my mouth to stop me saying something wrong and then wishing that I had not said it. As Christians we must be very careful what we say to others so that we do not offend them because in doing so we offend God if we do not speak righteously. Today please God guard my mouth, the door of my lips and my speaking. Amen.
From book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.
Why put a drawing of an old Roman Doorway on here…….well as you may know they were very very large for horses and carriages to go through.
The doorway of our heart is our mouth…..our tongue especially is the instrument that speaks.
Mostly as you can imagine our tongue is untamed.
So we need to tame our tongue, lets face it we can never do that on our own. The best idea is to ask The Lord to help us to speak in the way that He would prefer us to speak to others.
i.e. to encourage and not put them down.
But no, we have to have our say – whatever it may be with not a thought sometimes how it will affect the person we are talking to.
We should remember that: out of the Heart the Mouth speaks.
When we speak – people will often know what we are thinking in our heart. Our tongue is very unruly sometimes and it is good to pray now and then to ask God if He would put a guard over the door of our mouth.
I pray that God will tame my tongue and guard the door of my mouth how about you, would you like to do that?
* If you do – I pray that your tongue will Bless someone today *
Proverbs: Chapter 1 verse 7
The fear of The LORD is the beginning
but fools despise wisdom
I think I shall ask The LORD for more knowledge and wisdom today. I do not want to be a fool. I pray that I do have the fear of The LORD and I certainly do not despise wisdom and knowledge. For my part I know that I do love wisdom and knowledge.
I do know that I definitely need more!
Thank you LORD God that you continue to fill me afresh each day.
Also with the knowledge and love of Jesus.

Well then what are we waiting for, just think we are priviliged to be able to ask God our Heavenly Father for more knowledge and wisdom.
Then of course we are to use it to the best of the ability that God gives us.
A good thing to ask for as well is discernment……so that we can discern what we are about to do at any particular time in our livcs. Day by day we need help with the decisions that we are to make in our every day living. We live only by the grace of God. As we said last time our God is an Awesome God. Just to think He alone gives us the knowlege and wisdom that we need to live our everyday lives here on this earth.
What a privelidge it is to belong to the one true Living God who is our Heavenly Father.
I pray that you recieve ‘The Peace of The Lord” today in your heart, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Especially if you are a Christian living with The Holy Spirit dwelling in you where ever you are at the moment.
Have a lovely Day
– * God Bless You * –
This was a commisson painting that I did a few years ago.
James Chapter 1 verse 17
Every good and perfect gift
is from above
and cometh down from
The Father of lights,
with whom is no variableness,
neither shadow of turning.
Think of all the wonderful gifts that have been poured down to us from the Father of lights, Our Father in Heaven. He gives so graciously to us, who often are not worthy to receive. He loves us so much that He loves to bless us with perfect gifts. I thank you Heavenly Father for all the marvellous gifts you have given me, my family, my health, my food, my shelter, my friends, my work the list is undending like your goodness to me is never-ending. Thank you Heavenly Father. Amen.
This is from the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.
It makes us think when we read these words in the Bible, each edition says things a bit differently but in essence they still mean the same.
Like it says in the Bible – with God there is no shadow of turning. So it is good to count our Blessings. He does not take them back, once He has given them to us.
There is one of course that likes to rob us of our blessings and we all know who that is.
Let us walk in truth and righteousness and treasure the good things that we have, apart from our family etc, there may be a special gift that a friend has given us. There is always something to be grateful for even when we are going through difficult times, it is then that we need to focus on the gift of Jesus that God sent into the world for our sakes.
Have a lovely Day today and cherish the PERFECT GIFTS that God has given especially to you.
This comes with Love and Blessings from me.
