RUDDERLESS??

“We can make a large horse turn around and go wherever we want by means of a small bit in his mouth. And a tiny rudder makes a huge ship turn wherever the pilot wants it to go even though the winds are strong. So also the tongue is a small thing but what enormous damage it can do…” James 3:3-5 (Living Bible)

I have met many people who feel powerless about their lives. Everything feels out of control and they feel like losers who never achieve anything worthwhile with their lives. Nothing could be farther from the truth. God doesn’t see you as a loser or a weakling and you need to stop seeing yourself as such. Your tongue has the power to turn your life around. Your tongue is like a rudder that can steer your life to whatever direction you desire. Like the captain of a ship, you need to learn how to use the power of the tongue to give your life direction. The beautiful part of the whole gist is that words are free. The words that would save you from whatever you are passing through are right there “in your mouth and in your heart” (Romans 10:8 (NASB)). Use it!!
