God has said that only a perfect, or mature person can tame the tongue. The history of the world has borne witness to the fact that the greatest good, greatest evil, or most significant events are often associated with the tongue. Therefore, as only the Holy Spirit can take a dead soul and give them life, so only He can give the power to tame the tongue and only the life yielded to Him can know the power of a tongue that is an instrument for righteousness. Pastor Reardon takes us to James 3:2-12 and shows God's warning and instructions regarding our use of the tongue.
Only way to get breakthrough is to remain IN the Word of God. After we find the truth of what God says, we must commit to do it. Being consistent is a key to our breakthrough. Remember knowledge by itself doesn't bring breakthrough, because we can KNOW what belongs to us and not receive it. It's the knowledge acted upon that brings forth the breakthrough. Take to heart this teaching, apply it to your life and see if you have breakthrough in areas of your life.

Recipe #2: Realistic Expectations 1. I create security when I stop working on my mate and I start working on myself. â€For we are each responsible for our own conduct." Galatians 6:5 (NLT) â€œAnd why worry about a speck in your friend's eye when you have a log in your own?â€ Matthew 7:3 (NLT) 2. I create security when I start working on MY heart. My heart determines my actions. â€œAbove all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.â€ Proverbs 4:23 (NIV) â€œFor out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks.â€ Matthew 12:34 â€œAs water reflects a face, so a man's heart reflects the man.â€ Proverbs 27:19 â€œFor as he thinks in his heart, so is he.â€ Proverbs 23:7 (NKJV) "Don't you understand?" Jesus asked him. "Anything you eat passes through the stomach and then goes out of the body. But evil words come from an evil heart and defile the person who says them. For from the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, all other sexual immorality, theft, lying, and slander. These are what defile you. Eating with unwashed hands could never defile you and make you unacceptable to God!" Matthew 15:19, 20 (NLT) My heart needs to be examined. Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Psalm 139:23 (NIV) My heart can change. For if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. Romans 10:9, 10 (NLT) Jesus: â€œI'm here inviting outsiders, not insiders--an invitation to a changed life, changed inside and out.â€ Luke 5:32 (MSG)
