The News Personality said: ” Oh that’s just Joe.” And immediately a phrase from Scripture came to mind: “from the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.”
Listen. Listen for a while. And when you hear a similar stream of nouns, verbs and adjectives come from one’s mouth, then you should take note of this Scripture and know his/her verbiage is coming from within — the overflow from his/her heart.
Luke 6:44 Each tree is recognized by its own fruit — figs aren’t picked from thorn bushes, nor grapes from a briar patch. 45 The good person produces good things from the store of good in his heart, while the evil person produces evil things from the store of evil in his heart. For his mouth speaks what overflows from his heart.
46 “Why do you call me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ but not do what I say?
The implication that I gathered from the News Spokesperson was ‘don’t be so critical, don’t critique what Joe says, don’t take his words so seriously.’
There’s a lesson I want to learn here, perhaps you do too.
I want you to take my words seriously. I want you to be able to take my words to the bank, cash the check and be richer for having heard my words. I want to be known as a person who says what she means and means what she says and I want my words to honor Jesus and bless you. And I want this to be constant. I hope no one ever says of me: ” Oh, that’s just Kathie.”
No, let it be ‘Oh, that Kathie, she speaks JESUS’.
For his mouth speaks what overflows from his heart.

Day 122 of 2014, praying for revival in the Body of CHRIST.
ABBA, thank You. Thank You for this message. And I pray to practice it well. Britton has come to mind and I am asking You to intervene in his medical care, to enlighten the doctors, to find the cause of his fever and infection; to not only find the cause but the cure. I pray You will heal this little boy. Thank You for this National Day of Prayer that is nearly spent. I am grateful for every prayer that was offered to You today for this Nation. HOLY SPIRIT, please call us to keep on praying for America. I get highly charged, ABBA, when I think about our condition. I get highly charged when I think about the corruption, the injustice, the lies, the fraud, the debauchery that goes on day after day in Washington and from shore to shore. I am so sorry. And without You to speak to me, correct me and help me I will surely despair under it all. I long for the day when YESHUA will return as King and rule this place and until then I invite You to help me be a part of the solution and not a party to the corruption. I pray for holy boldness to speak Your Truth; to offer Your Gospel every where I am every day and I pray souls will hear, will believe and be saved. Thank You, ABBA, in JESUS name.
