You have an enemy. He wants you dead, beaten, down for the count. He is lurking around, waiting to devour you. If you think you don’t have this enemy, wake up to reality!
A weapon of mass destruction is defined as a weapon capable of causing widespread death and destruction. You may be thinking of terrorists and wars right now, but the reality is, the enemy of your soul has a sneaky weapon of mass destruction that can destroy families, businesses, relationships and reputations.
This is a weapon, for whatever reason, you have allowed in your life for way too long. In fact, you’ve probably wielded it yourself at times, not even realizing the damage it can cause. It’s called gossip! So let’s talk about how you can overcome this enemy and disarm this devastating weapon.
Feed your faith, not the enemy
Gossip usually stems from hurt, fear or pain. Other times you get roped into it without even realizing it! Be an agent of peace by feeding your faith daily
Gossip has the power to destroy families, churches, corporations quicker than any man-made weapon. A business will go from booming to a total ruin, overnight. All due to the power of the tongue. And the enemy sets you up to hear it, speak it or be ruined by it.
“A fool’s lips bring strife, and his mouth calls for blows. A fool’s mouth is his ruin, and his lips are the snare of his soul.” (Proverbs 18:6-7). What I love about this verse is that it is actually pointing out that strife will fall on the fool! And you don’t often see that side of it, do you? Usually you see people who leave their jobs or walk out on relationships, because of the pain of that gossip.
But the truth is, gossip will circle back to you or will always hurt he who spoke it!
If you are carrying around this weapon of mass destruction, you are an agent for the enemy. You started carrying around the deception however long ago and you keep it with you, armed and ready to go just in case you need it.
Instead of being a part of it, you and I both need to become agents of peace! Let’s become part of the other side that is edifying, encouraging and loving toward others. Become a person other people can trust! That doesn’t mean you’ll never gossip or get roped into it ever again… everyone stumbles.
But today, you have to decide what type of person you want to be and what you want to be known for. Do you want to be known for 7th-grader behavior that for some reason still lives on the tongues of 45-year-old men and women globally?
I believe you are called to a much higher level than where you are currently sitting. Promotions are in your destiny and you will be unstoppable in the marketplace, the home and your community. Because I believe you were meant for something so much bigger.
