  • Day 26: No Matter How Small– Read Job 27:4 (NAS). A lie is a lie no matter how big or small you think it is. If you are distorting the truth then it’s a lie. Psalm 51:6 says, “You desire truth in the inward parts, and in the hidden parts You make me to know wisdom.” The Lord desires us to walk in truth outwardly with others and inwardly in our hearts.40 day word fast by Tim Cameron
  • Day 27: Keep Your Word – Read James 5:12. If you say you are going to do something, keep your word. If something changes your ability to carry out your promise then communicate that. Let your “Yes” be “Yes” and “No” be “No.”
  • Day 28: In What Do You Boast – Read Psalm 20:7 (NAS). What do you boast in? Should you even boast? Psalm 75:5 (NAS) says, “Do not lift up your horn on high, do not speak with insolent pride.” Basically, don’t toot your own horn. Allow others to sing your praises. When you do boast, boast in the name of the Lord.
  • Day 29: What Do Your Lips Preserve? – Read Proverbs 5:2. God wants our lips to keep knowledge and speak His words. Are you releasing words that will harm others or words that are pleasing to God’s ear? Always consult God and ask Him to help you speak His words and not the words of the world.
  • Day 30: Would You Pass the Exam? – Read Psalm 17:3. If the Lord visited you and inspected your character, would you pass the exam? The author says, “Your reputation is what others think you are; your character is what you really are.” Take serious inventory over your life and ask yourself would you pass the exam?

God bless.

  • Day 21: Restrain Your Speech– Read Proverbs 17:27-28 NIV. Everyone has experienced putting their foot in their mouth one time or another. Just because you have an opinion doesn’t mean you have to share it all of the time. Practice restraint over speaking your mind. The author says, “It is a fruit-bearing exercise to just hold your tongue in some conversations and not have to give your opinion or experience.”
  • Day 22: Use Words that Free – Read Proverbs 6:2-3. If you are not careful and prayerful with your words, you will become trapped by them. When you 40 day word fast by Tim Cameronspeak, be sure to release words that heal and set others free.
  • Day 23: The Taming Work – Read James 3:8-10. It’s amazing how a person can proclaim the love of God and the next moment judge, criticize, gossip and more. Take time to cry out to the Lord to tame your tongue. The Lord is the ONE who gives us power over this tiny member of the body.
  • Day 24: Crying In Your Distress – Read Psalm 3:4. Everyone has experienced moments of turmoil, trauma and disappointment. These moments don’t often yield warm and fuzzy feelings or words. Instead of running to complain cry out to the Lord. He can turn your mourning into dancing. He is the ONE who can give you PRAISE on your lips even while in moments of distress. Give your tough times to Him.
  • Day 25: Do Your Words Build? – Read 2 Samuel 23:2. Take inventory over your words. Do you speak words that build people up? Be honest. When was the last time you encouraged someone? There is something special about using words of beauty. Speak words that build people up each and every day.
