Muzzle my Mouth

This verse came up in my morning devotion last week….

“I said, “I will watch my ways and keep my tongue from sin; I will put a muzzle on my mouth while in the presence of the wicked.””‭‭Psalms‬ ‭39:1‬ ‭NIV‬‬

It caught me so off guard with the phrase “muzzle on my mouth” that I took a screenshot and went back to that photo in my phone several times over the course of the week.

Muzzle on my mouth.

Sometimes that is exactly what I need to hear and put into practice! 🤣🤣

Just like the verse says, we can absolutely keep ourselves from sin if we muzzled our mouth a little more. Think about how many arguments could be avoided if we would spend a little more time “watching our ways” and “muzzling our mouth”. So many people love to argue for the sake of arguing. Everyone has opinions and everyone has a right to their own opinion…. but most of the time it’s not worth arguing, creating unnecessary drama, or ruining relationships over.

Help me Lord to recognize the times that I should put this verse into practice and zip it! I want to spend more time this week simply listening to others.
