Psalms 139:4 Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O LORD, you know it altogether.  

How often we “put our foot in our mouth” by saying a word we shouldn’t say?  I know I have on numerous times,  Once a word is spoken it can’t be taken back.  God has provided a solution for what I call “foot in mouth disease.”. He says He knows our words before they form in our mouth.  The question is are we willing to slow down our words enough to listen to Him?  It doesn’t take long if we really want to hear.  I’m getting better on listening before speaking it but I still get it in my mind and heart and speak it softly to myself.  As I do this I sence God correcting me.  With practice I will become better at wanting to hear God than I want to think and say the word I shouldn’t.  It is usually a word that would make somebody hurt or feel bad. It could be a word of gossip.  There are many things that word could be that we would regret after hearing from God.  Would it not be better to listen to God first before saying or even thinking the word?
