Words That Release Life
It’s very important that we are careful with our words in the days ahead. We have been instructed by the Lord to be slow to speak in order to bring words that will release healing to others and not tear them down.
We need to exercise discernment and be careful not to be presumptuous as we move into the year so we can continue to bless and bring life to those we encounter.
“Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.” (Prov. 16:24) Other versions say ‘kind’ words or ‘pleasant’ words.
Jesus said ‘My words are spirit and they are life’. John 5:53
We are called to love the Lord our God with all our hearts; and to love our neighbour as ourselves. What are the words we are speaking over our own lives? Are they words of life, courage, strength and hope? As we ‘go’, are we ‘manifesting the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place’? 2 Corinthians 2:14 “Now thanks be to God Who always leads us to triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place”.
As we “keep ourselves in the love of God”, (Jude verses 20-21), staying close to our Lord and Friend, He will give us the words to speak and lead us to those He wants us to minister to, and cause us to triumph.
You are highly favoured, greatly loved and deeply blessed. Kath
