Don't Swear on the Job!
CarolMarie Smith
Recently, on the back of a truck, I read "DRIVER CUSSED".  I thought, "Oh my, that's a strict company!  Wow, if they catch you cussing, they put a sign on the back of your truck letting everyone know!"  I wondered what would happen if there was a sign on our lives when we spoke negatively of ourselves or one another?   Within seconds my mind was thinking of the parallels the sign on the truck could give me and the lessons I could learn.
Looking back at the truck I realized that it really said: "DRIVER FOCUSED"!    The "O" in the word was made into a magnifying glass so that I only noticed the end of the word!    I giggled to myself as I realized how I read the two different messages.   
I believe there is a sign in the spirit realm that signals demons and angels of Heaven, which realm we are agreeing with!    We give them permission by our words what they can back up in our lives!    "Ouch!"
"A man's [moral] self shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth, and with the consequence of his words, he must be satisfied [whether good or evil].
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life]."    Pro 18:20,21 (AMP)
Oh, I can't blame it on someone else?    I am experiencing the consequences of MY words?    Goodness, there IS a sign on my vehicle of life!
"Bless the Lord, you His angels,
Who excel in strength, who do His word,
Heeding the voice of His word."    Psalm 103:20 (NKJV)
Wow, what happens when we put God's Word on our lips and give the angels something to excel in strength to do?    They are ready to heed His Word as we give it voice!
"So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it."    Isa 55:11
"Peace, peace, to him who is far off ... and to him who is near! says the Lord; I create the fruit of his lips, and I will heal him [make his lips blossom anew with speech in thankful praise]."    Isa 57:19

"Peace, peace, to him who is far off ... and to him who is near! says the Lord; I create the fruit of his lips, and I will heal him [make his lips blossom anew with speech in thankful praise]."    Isa 57:19
LOOK, we don't have to cuss!    We can stay FOCUSED!
