In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me. Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue. What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue? Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper. Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar. My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace. I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.
It’s slowly soaking in, LORD, that as one who is sworn to You, I am faced frequently with lying lips and deceitful tongues. Give me wisdom to recognize deliberate attempts to lead me astray and ruin my witness.
Also, there are times when falsehood is so attractively packaged that I fall into the trap. I need the oversight of the Holy Spirit.
