Devotion: Your tongue the tree of life

11

Pro 15:4 KJV* “A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.”

In the garden of Eden there was a tree of life which if a man could eat the fruit of it, he could live forever. There was also a forbidden fruit which if man eats would die. Adam chose to eat of the forbidden fruit before he ate the tree of life.

Therefore after eating from the forbiden fruit, man was disqualified from eating from the tree of life, lest he lives as a sinner forever. Gen 3:22,24 “And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever…So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life..”

The other reason for the tree of life is that its leaves bring healing in every part. Rev 22:2 “Between the city street and the river, the tree of life was visible from each side. It produced twelve kinds of fruit, each month having its own fruit. The leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.”

Having banned Adam and Eve from the tree of life, God has given another chance for man to have their own tree of life which is their tongue according to the opening scripture. Good Words coming out of your tongue can bring life and healing in every ares of life whether finances, family, job and all others. That is why the Proverbs 18:21 says you shall eat the fruit of the tongue. The fruit of the tree of life given unto you. Pro 18:21  “Death and life are in the power of the tongue; those who love it will eat its fruit.” To love the tongue is to speak good Words that conform to the Word of God. When you speak such words you make your tongue the tree of life and you eat its fruit. You bring life to your situations and health to every condition in your life.

When you speak that which is opposite to the word of God you are eating of the forbidden fruit and you bring death to your self. Choose to eat of the Tree of life by making your tongue speak that which agrees to the Word. Dont speak negatives to buy sympathy. What you speak is what you get. Joel 3:10…“Let the weak say “I am strong.”

HoldingJob 22:29 “When they cast down, you shall say, ‘be lifted up.’ He will save the humble person.”

Confession:( Right now speak Good words that conform to the Word.)

Pro 18:12 NET* “Before destruction the heart of a person is proud, but humility comes before honor.”

Its not about showing to people that you are humble but rather God who sees the heart of man should qualify you based on your motive in whatever you do.

The scripture shows us that pride precedes the destruction of a person and humility procedes honour. Those who are humble are honoured by the Lord whereas those who are proud are close to their destruction. Jesus was humble before the father, He abased himself and took the form of man and died on the cross. He left all the glory and honor of heaven and became like a servant. He left the comfort of heaven and humbled himself by coming to earth to die for sinful man. Because of this He received the name above every name. The name is a representation of authority. His name has authority over other names because of humility. Phi 2:8-9 KJV “And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name.”

Those believers who are humble are the great people in the Kingdom. Mat 18:4 NET* “Whoever then humbles himself like this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”

Humility is in the heart but can also be expressed in action. Humility is not just mere words of being humble.  In the Kingdom we get promoted when we humble ourselves. 1Pe 5:6 KJV* “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.” Jas 4:10 KJV* “Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.” Mat 23:12 KJV* “And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.”

 

If you need more grace, then humble yourself.Jas 4:6 KJV “But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.” Therefore whether we have achieved great things, we need to humble ourselves for more achievements.

Those who are humble will always remember its not by themselves but by the power of God that has made them achieve something. 2Co 3:5 BBE* “Not as if we were able by ourselves to do anything for which we might take the credit; but our power comes from God”.

Prayer

Thank you Father for the Word that reminds me to be humble all the time. I receive your Word and will maintain my humility all the time. I will always remember that my ability is not of myself but of Christ working in and through me. I will be wise always be wise but humble. In Jesus Name.Amen
