Psalm 19:14(KJV); Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
The heart speaks.
In our theme scripture, David speaks of the meditation of the heart.
In Deuteronomy 8:17, God tells the children of Israel, ‘And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.’
All this means is that our hearts are always speaking.
Mastery over words requires that the words of your mouth are aligned with the words of your heart.
There are people who confess positively with their mouths and yet their hearts are saying different things.
In fact, the war for them is not against the circumstances they face but between what their lips are confessing and what their hearts are saying.
If you confess positively and yet your heart is speaking negatively, do not expect positive results.
One of the ways you know that the heart is speaking contrary to your positive confession is when there is fear present in your spirit —that is the heart speaking.
Deal with the heart! Speak to it, rebuke fear out of it. After you have done that, resume positive confession.
The words of your mouth cannot be acceptable to God when the meditations of your heart are not.
Thus, exercise both the mouth of your body and the mouth of your heart to speak in line with the Word of God.

Mastery over words requires that the words of your mouth are aligned with the words of your heart. Exercise both the mouth of your body and the mouth of your heart to speak in line with the Word of God.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank you for this truth. My tongue is tamed to the glory of your name. Deeper than this, the meditations of my heart beat in tune with your Word. I speak the very things that I have believed. The confessions of my lips are true because they resound from the depth of my heart. In Jesus’ name.
