Healing The Tongue

David Wilkerson

The prophet Isaiah provides us with an example of how we can heal our tongue.

1. Isaiah drew near to the Lord and prayed for a vision of God’s holiness.

“I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up” (Isaiah 6:1).

Anyone who wants to live pleasing to the Lord must constantly go into His

presence until he obtains a vision of God’s holiness. All healing, all true

blessings, all victories begin at His throne. That is where we see God in His

holiness!

2. In God’s holy presence Isaiah was deeply convicted of having unclean lips.

“Then I said: ‘Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean

lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have

seen the King, the Lord of hosts’” (6:5).

Why did Isaiah cry out, “I am a man of unclean lips”? It was because he had

seen the King of Glory! Our transgressions become exceedingly sinful when we are

in God’s presence. The light of His holy countenance exposes everything that

is unlike Him!

3. Isaiah allowed the Lord to touch him and cleanse him with His holy fire.

“Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he

had taken with the tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth with it, and

said: ‘Behold, this has touched your lips; your iniquity is taken away, and

your sin purged’” (6:6-7).

God’s Word is a live coal and the Holy Spirit is its fire! Right now you have

been touched by the Holy Spirit through this message and God wants to put His

fire to your tongue and sanctify it. He can do it for you if you will let His

Word convict you! He is the only One who can do it. Your part is simply to

confess, as Isaiah did, “Woe is me, I am unclean!”

Let this word go straight to your heart and purge you with its fire. Confess,

“Yes, it is me, Lord! I will not let this word pass me by! Purge my lips and

my tongue. Cleanse my mouth and my heart!”
