You Talk Too Much
Tolu Akande
August 27th, 2011

Earlier this month a bunch of us went on a ministry trip to Texas. As you can imagine 15 young adults in a 15 passenger van for 15 hours makes for a lot of talk. During the trip, I and a friend began to talk about, well…talking. It’s actually a really sensitive issue for many. Anyway, I’d like to share what the Word says about talking. Enjoy and let the Word of God speak to you.

Proverbs 10:19 (NASB), “When there are many words, transgression is unavoidable, But he who restrains his lips is wise.”

James 1:19 (ESV), “Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger.”

James 3:10 (MSG), “Curses and blessings out of the same mouth! My friends, this can't go on.”

Ecclesiastes 5:2 (NIV), “Do not be quick with your mouth, do not be hasty in your heart to utter anything before God. God is in heaven and you are on earth, so let your words be few.”

Ecclesiastes 5:6 (NIV), “Do not let your mouth lead you into sin…”

Ephesians 4:29 (NASB), “Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.”

Matthew 12:34 (NIV), “…For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks.”

Matthew 15:18 (NLT), “But the words you speak come from the heart--that's what defiles you.”

Friends, let us guard our mouths and only use them to glorify God and build up others. I need not say more than that.

Prayer: Set a guard over my mouth, O LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips (Psalm 141:3). May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer (Psalm 19:14).

Calendar

Healing Rooms
7/27/2014 3:45pm - 4:45pm

If you are wrestling with physical sickness, a chronic disease, a painful injury, or a heavy emotional burden, then there is good news for you. God's Word says that He is exceedingly kind and loves to heal (Psalm 103:1-5). During His earthly ministry, Jesus healed all who came to Him (Matthew 4:24). God has promised that the prayer of faith will restore the one who is sick (James 5:15). Therefore, we want to stand with you in prayer and faith, believing God to perform a healing work in your life.

Our Healing Rooms will be held from 3:45 - 4:45 pm on Sunday evenings weekly.

Appointments for personal ministry can be made starting at 3:30 pm on a first-come, first-serve basis. This personal time of ministry will typically last 20 minutes with one of our Healing Rooms ministry teams.

Prophecy Rooms
7/27/2014 3:45pm - 4:45pm

At IHOP Atlanta, we desire to encourage and strengthen believers through the prophetic ministry. We have prophecy teams that are trained to hear the heart of the Lord for people and to minister His words of encouragement, edification, and exhortation (1 Cor 14:3). It is our prayer that believers will be strengthened in their faith and have a clearer understanding of how God feels and thinks about them after receiving ministry in the prophecy rooms. If you desire to encounter God's love for you in practical way, we encourage you to sign up for a ministry time in our prophecy rooms.

The prophecy rooms are open on Sundays from 3:45-4:45 PM. Appointments can be made 15 minutes prior. They are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Appointments typically last 10 minutes and are recorded for your convenience.
