CONTROL THE MUSCLE IN YOUR MOUTH





In James 3 it is written very well where it is said that we must control our words and watch what we say. He makes a reference to when a bit is put in a horses mouth in order to control them with a harness.
Well we should do the same to ourselves. You see the tongue may be a little muscle, small like the bit in a horses mouth, but much like the bit can control a horse, so can the tongue control our lives.
When we don't harness it, the tongue can control us.
With no discipline, the tongue will sometimes say things that the mind is thinking, and especially at times when our minds are not thinking the most positive thoughts.
At times when we are angry, hurt or feeling sad our emotions can affect our thoughts, and then if we do not harness our tongues then quite frequently those thoughts will be spoken out loud with the tongue. That is when we put ourselves into uncompromising positions.
It is at those times that we put ourselves on a pedestal, insult other people, make assumptions, gossip or just say words that are unnecessary.
Nevertheless, if the tongue is worked on diligently by consciously controlling it in every instance, by harnessing it and making sure it does not speak what is unkind, untrue or illogical, then whenever a situation arises that may feel unfair the tongue will be trained to not override the person.
Moreover, even though the thoughts may be not so positive in the brain at the moment, the tongue will be still, disciplined with inner strength, holding the knowledge that whatever it says may be detrimental to the entire person's character.  
This is why when we hold our tongue it expresses spiritual discernment and demonstrates wise insight.

Lastly, there will be times when we will fall short of the glory of God, which at that time it is best to readily confess the sin and say as it is written in 1 John 1:9
"If we confess our sins, God is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins from all unrighteousness."
Tip: It is not always necessary to confess to others. In fact it is about you confessing to God only. But then it is important to show gratitude by not falling into the trap of sinning willfully, and then confessing, because then that will not be sincere.
