As I was praying Psalm 63 this morning, the very last line of the chapter struck my spirit and immediately tears fell down my face. “For the mouths of those who speak lies will be stopped.” If I could sum up in one verse what I desire for the nations, it would be Psalm 63:11. It is not a verse we memorize, preach or even talk about, it is not one of the common verses we share with each other, but it is a verse that is going to transform the nations. Psalm 63:11, “The king will rejoice in God; Everyone who swears by Him will glory, For the mouths of those who speak lies will be stopped.” The king in this verse is David and this chapter is about seeking God in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
The Lord showed me that debt, depression, distress, loneliness, anxiety, fear, anger, violence, all the negative emotions we deal with are because of the lies spoken over the nations. Lies create droughts in our soul and what we do out of dryness is usually negative. We know Jesus said, Satan is the father of lies, so it is nothing new to realize these are all the work of the enemy. But when the word tells me THE MOUTHS OF THOSE WHO SPEAK LIES WILL BE STOPPED, tears fall down my face, because I know that is the answer we need. We need the lies to stop. Those who have access to amplify their voice are spewing lies continually with no regard for how it is destroying people’s lives. Then we as friends argue because some know the truth while others only know the lies.
I feel the heart of God on this today and He is declaring to us the mouths of those who speak lies will be stopped. I know it is hard to believe, for we have only lived with the narrative of lies in the atmospher, but I see a narrative shift coming of cosmic proportion. I was at lunch with a friend yesterday and even though it was hard for her to grasp all the good news I was sharing with her at the end she said, you are speaking a much better outcome than we are being told. It’s not my opinion, it’s God’s word. He said, the mouths of those who speak lies will be stopped. I am declaring what God is saying. We are about to experience what Jesus promised, life and life abundantly.
