For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.  Matthew 12:34
It is interesting to note how many times the Lord charged those upon whom He had performed some miracle of healing not to publish the fact abroad. But in most cases, if not in all, it seems that the persons concerned could not control themselves. One reads over and over again that they proclaimed the news freely. It was a case of “For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.”

Similarly, it is only when grace does a real work in the heart, only when the heart is full of the Holy Spirit (Eph. 5:18), only when Christ is all in all, that the mouth will speak.

Lord, I will testify of Your goodness and grace out of the abundance of my heart.

According to Your Word
