Who's Ruling Your Heart?

If you had a Throne room in your heart, who do you see sitting there?

Is it yourself? Someone else? Someone you look up to? Some "thing?"

How can you know for sure, from one moment to the next?

One way to know: By the words that come out of your mouth.

The tongue.

What is your tongue stuck on?

Your tongue can tell you who or what sits on the Throne of your heart.

From the mouth comes blessings and cursing.

"And the tongue is a fire, the very world of iniquity; the tongue is set among our members as that which defile the entire body, and sets on fire the course of our life, and is set on fire by hell." James 3:6

Who can tame it?

"But the tongue can no man tame; it is a restless evil, it is full of deadly poison." James 3:8

"A wholesome tongue is a tree of life; but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit." Proverbs 15:4

What can we do then to restrain our tongue or choose a better Ruler over our heart?

Scripture compares the tongue to a rudder of a boat, or a bit in the mouth of a horse. Whoever is in charge of it is in charge of the whole boat and its direction or the whole body of a horse.

Consequently, we need to fill the Throne room chair with someone who will command and rule rightly, wisely and in the BEST interest of all. Who the heck can fill those requirements?

Why not ask the LORD to take the chair?

He's a gentleman and will do a Good job of directing your thoughts, and your life, for the BETTER!

And everyone said, "Okay! 'Bout time."
