Joel Osteen Devotional 25 June 2019 – Words can pollute or purify
Topic: Words Can Pollute or Purify
Let no foul or polluting language…come out of your mouth. – Ephesians 4:29, AMPC
Your words have the power to pollute or purify. If you constantly complain, you release poison into your life. Complaining is not based on your circumstances, it’s based on the attitude of your heart. If you will keep the right attitude during your time of adversity, God will honor you. When you truly trust God, there are times you will have unanswered questions—don’t let that keep you from fulfilling your destiny. When you have a heart full of gratitude, it leaves no room for complaining.

A Prayer for Today
God, I believe in the power of the spoken word. When I am tempted to complain or speak negative words today, I will listen to that quiet voice inside me that tells me to hold them back. I will spend a quiet minute meditating on what I have to be thankful for and adjust my attitude so my words today reflect my joy. In Jesus’ name – Amen.
