"Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles" (Prov. 21:23).

Many people have trouble in the area of the soul, which includes the mind, will and emotions. Some suffer from emotional hurts or from mental torment and are looking for help. But God has provided the answer they need in this Scripture: "Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles."

We've all dealt with doubts and fears at one time or another. Fear often starts as a thought. As we dwell on that thought, it produces a feeling of fear. And if we continue to dwell on fearful thoughts, our feelings of fear may escalate into panic.

The devil likes to insert those kinds of thoughts in your mind. For instance, he may say, "I'm going to kill you. You won't live out your full life. You'll contract cancer and die." Most of the time there isn't even any basis or symptom for what the enemy is saying to your mind. He doesn't care. He just wants you to dwell on his evil suggestions long enough for fear to take over.

I finally realized that those demonic thoughts come to our minds because the devil isn't big enough to pull off his schemes on his own. He has to get us to agree with him before he can operate in our lives.

So you have to cast down the enemy's thoughts as soon as they come. How do you stop his thoughts? Well, you can't think one thing when you are saying something else. So the minute a fearful thought comes about sickness or death, just start confessing, "Glory to God! He sent His Word and healed me. Thank God, I'm healed. It's so good to be well!"

What happens to the satanic thoughts? They stop. What happens to the fear? It leaves.

So control your mouth by speaking God's Word. If you catch those demonic suggestions while they're still thoughts, they won't produce fear in you. When you control your words, you can control your thought life, and that will keep your soul from trouble!

I don't allow Satan's thoughts of fear and doubt to control me. I keep my soul from trouble by speaking God's Word. I will live a long, healthy life, and God will fulfill the number of my days!
