For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: 1 Peter 3:10 (KJV)

I was praying the other day and found myself saying, as I sometimes do, that God has given me my tongue to glorify Him and not to speak guile and declaring my commitment to measure my words and use them to glorify God in all circumstances. I knew this was in the bible and that the word guile meant bad, evil and ungodly words. Guile is such an old word that we don’t really use today. It was used only eleven times in the entire old and new testament, so even then, it was a word that was infrequently used, and every time it was used it was associated with the negative, the ungodly and evil. Psalm 34:13 says, Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Guile is another word for deceit, deception, dishonesty and lies. The dictionary defines it as dishonest behaviour that you use to deceive someone.

Every gift God freely gives is good and perfect, streaming down from the Father of lights, who shines from the heavens with no shadow or darkness and is never subject to change. – James 1:17 (TPT)

Dictionary meaning of ‘match’ – correspond, or cause to correspond in some essential respect, be harmonious. Synonym: harmonise with, blend with, complement

In order to change an old system, an organisation needs to understand what they require for the future (this is usually quantified and qualified), what the system can do and how they fit together. And the business functions in the organisation must  be able to work with these criteria even if in most cases this would be changing their ways of working to ensure the progress, growth, effectiveness and efficiency of the organisation.

Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time. Colossians 4:5 (NKJV)

Time is our most irreplaceable possession, once gone you cannot get it back! I would usually say to young people that there is a season of life that is best to do certain things, so let’s endeavour to be doing the right things especially by God in the right season of our lives. Solomon said it better in Ecclesiastes 3:1 when he said, To everything there is a season, and a time for every matter or purpose under heaven.

Have not I commanded you? Be strong, vigorous, and very courageous. Be not afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9 (AMPC)

Only be strong, vigorous (forceful) and very courageous! Joshua was taking over from Moses to lead God’s people into the land God had promised them and he knew that the task before him was going to be hard and rough. He had walked with Moses as his assistant and had seen some of the amazing things God had done for the Israelites, but the time had come for him to lead doing all the things God commanded to be done. In Deuteronomy 31:7 Moses said to Joshua and the Israelites, Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” Then Moses summoned Joshua and said to him in the sight of all Israel, Be strong and courageous, for you shall go with this people into the land that the Lord has sworn to their fathers to give them, and you shall put them in possession of it.”

For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come. 1 Corinthians 11:26 (KJV)

Jesus is coming again! Yippee, I don’t know exactly when, but I hope that is wonderful news to you as it is to me. And till He comes, He said we should eat this bread and drink this cup reminding ourselves constantly of His life, His death and His resurrection. The Living Bible says, and I love it, “that every time you eat this bread and drink this cup you are retelling the message of the Lord’s death, that he has died for you.” Do this until he comes again. You are retelling the message to yourself, your situation and the devil that Jesus has died for you.

The righteous keep moving forward and those with clean hands become stronger and stronger. Job 17:9(NLT)

As I considered this verse I thought about a man planning a journey to a very nice and exotic place but who for one reason or the other could not move out of his house or where he was. He would consider the traffic and the potential volume of cars on the road, he consistently monitored the traffic news and spent hours listening to the weather forecast and he was not certain that he had enough money

For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:17 (NKJV)

One man’s action can impact a lot of people positively or negatively. One man acting in obedience to God and His word can have a lasting positive influence on the lives of so many people in the world. You and I are the ‘one man’ and ‘one woman’ today and what we do, the actions we take, the decisions we make and whom we obey massively matters. One man can change the course of this world for God. One man, Isaiah, did just that when he responded to God to send him in Isaiah 6:8, ‘Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”’

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, pretenders (hypocrites)! For you give a tenth of your mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected and omitted the weightier (more important) matters of the Law—right and justice and mercy and fidelity. These you ought [particularly] to have done, without neglecting the others. Matthew 23:23 (AMPC)

Have you been in a relationship where you felt you were doing everything you know to do to please the ones you love? You work hard, you buy flowers, you take time to look good and so on. Then one day you find out everything good you did whilst appreciated was not actually what they wanted. You ask yourself, how could this have happened? how could I not have known? It happened because in addition to all the good you did, you had not spent time getting to know their heart, the things that were most important to them.
