Tend and Keep Your Garden 

By Tiffany Bretana

The Lord is saying, I have commissioned your mouthes, I am the Lord of the words out of your mouthes. I have commissioned your mouthes to preach, teach, and speak good things, the Good News, the Gospel. I have not commissioned idle words. I have given you My voice on the earth that the angels may hearken to. I have not told you to speak as Egypt-the world, but I have brought you out from that. I am the High Priest over your confession of faith. Tend and keep your garden, Speak the word only that I have put in your mouthes.  

Psalm 81:10 “I am the Lord your God, Who brought you up from the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide and I will fill it. 

Proverbs 12:14 A man will be satisfied with good from the fruit of his words, And the deeds of a man’s hands will return to him as a harvest. 

Proverbs 18:20 A man’s stomach will be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; He will be satisfied with the consequence of his words. 

Proverbs 13:2 From the fruit of his mouth a wise man enjoys good, But the desire of the treacherous is for violence. 

Hebrews 13:15 Through Him, therefore, let us at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of lips that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name. 

Matthew 8:8 But the centurion replied to Him, “Lord, I am not worthy to have You come under my roof, but only say the word, and my servant will be healed. 

James 3:2-10 For we all stumble and sin in many ways. If anyone does not stumble in what he says never saying the wrong thing, he is a perfect man fully developed in character, without serious flaws, able to bridle his whole body and rein in his entire nature taming his human faults and weaknesses. Now if we put bits into the horses’ mouths to make them obey us, we guide their whole body as well. And look at the ships. Even though they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are still directed by a very small rudder wherever the impulse of the helmsman determines. In the same sense, the tongue is a small part of the body, and yet it boasts of great things. See by comparison how great a forest is set on fire by a small spark! And the tongue is in a sense a fire, the very world of injustice and unrighteousness; the tongue is set among our members as that which contaminates the entire body, and sets on fire the course of our life the cycle of man’s existence, and is itself set on fire by hell Gehenna. For every species of beasts and birds, of reptiles and sea creatures, is tamed and has been tamed by the human race. But no one can tame the human tongue; it is a restless evil undisciplined, unstable, full of deadly poison. With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God. Out of the same mouth come both blessing and cursing. These things, my brothers, should not be this way for we have a moral obligation to speak in a manner that reflects our fear of God and profound respect for His precepts. 

Hebrews 3:1 Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus, 

Hebrews 3:1-6 Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, thoughtfully and attentively consider the Apostle and High Priest whom we confessed as ours when we accepted Him as Savior, namely, Jesus; He was faithful to Him who appointed Him Apostle and High Priest, as Moses also was faithful in all God’s house. Yet Jesus has been considered worthy of much greater glory and honor than Moses, just as the builder of a house has more honor than the house. For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God. Now Moses was faithful in the administration of all God’s house, but only as a ministering servant, his ministry serving as a testimony of the things which were to be spoken afterward the revelation to come in Christ; but Christ is faithful as a Son over His Father’s house. And we are His house if we hold fast our confidence and sense of triumph in our hope in Christ. 

Hebrews 4:14-16 Hebrews 3:1 Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus, Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
