    A lot of times when a person talks too much they may say things they shouldn't say or say things in a wrong way as verse 19 shows. We should choose our words carefully.

    What is the Blessing of the Lord ? To me that is His salvation : The totality of His word. ! Salvation is : Preservation : Healing : Soundness of Mind : Deliverance : and Safety : WE can find all this in God's Holy word : We are commanded to obey : When I obey and act on His word and receive His word : I am rich : God gives Life and there is no sorrow at all in what God gives : it cuts away the flesh , But gives Riches and Honor and Life . Within my heart : When all 3 parts of me lines up with God's word : My spirit ,my soul , and my body : All in accordance with God's word !!!

    Jeremiah 2:8 The priests said not, Where is the LORD? and they that handle the law knew me not: the pastors also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit. Jeremiah 12:10 Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness. Jeremiah 23:1 Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD. John 10:8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. Jeremiah 7:11 Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith the LORD.

    I believed all GOOD GIFTS COMES FROM ABOVE. We need to be Bold in asking for a blessing and complete this always with thanksgiving. Thanks to the BLOOD OF JESUS thru his blood we are SANCTIFIED OUR SINS ARE FORGIVEN. WE NEED TO BE BORN AGAIN IN SPIRIT AND NOT IN A FLESH. JESUS reminds us to have OBEDIENCE TO HIS WORDS and to give a place for the devil who is foolish and wicked. THANKS TO JESUS

    Proverbs 10 discerns between the righteous and the wicked. And the true believer has the ability to discern by the evidence of how people live and speak. Ask yourself; do they contend for the faith, or speak against it, do they believe what God says in his word, or do they add their own words in vanity to his word? Test every spirit with scripture, including what I write.
