Winning Wisdom: The Little Weapon

Topic: The Little Weapon [Thursday, 27th April 2017]

Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! - James 3:6

The five sense organs: the eye, for seeing; the ears for hearing; the skin for feeling; the nose for smelling; and the tongue for tasting. The tongue, we were taught, has little taste buds with which we appreciate and differentiate tastes, ranging from sweet to bitter to sour. The tongue we also know is very important in producing speech. Without which, no word can be formed with the mouth, and if not properly “cut” as a child, the words formed will be distorted and sometimes unrecognizable. With this, we know that the tongue is a very important organ in the body. But that’s not all. The tongue is also a very important weapon!

For those who don’t know, a weapon is a tool used in contesting or achieving something. Now in a world where we’re constantly in battle; with our thoughts, with circumstances we find ourselves, with oppositions, and with life itself, we need a weapon that will be ever ready and easily accessible. And God provided one for us: our tongues! The tongue is always with us, and ever ready to serve us.

However, like every weapon of war, the tongue needs preparation for the day of battle. Whatever you feed your tongue is what it produces for you. So therefore feed it constantly with the Word of God, so that on the day you need it, it’ll be readily available for you. Joshua 1:8 says: “this book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” It is by constant meditation on the Word that we sharpen our "little" weapon for the day of battle, and then we obtain good success. “The words of the wicked kill; the speech of the upright saves.” (Proverbs 12:6 MSG). Save yourself and others by your speech.

Keep winning daily.

Wise Action:

Daily fill your mind with positive words from scriptures, and meditate on them. Then consciously speak them into your life, and that of people around you.
