Words are Power

I have some devotionals that I use daily. One of those that I love is Joyce Meyer's "Starting and Ending your Day"

This actual devotion is in August but I know there are times I will look specifically for something I want to look deeper within and allow the Lord to illuminate those things that need to be revealed in me.

Hebrews 12:15
Be careful that no one fails to receive God's grace and begins to cause trouble among you. A person like that can ruin many of you.

Jesus said, "If you have faith and do not doubt....even if you say to this mountain, Be taken up and cast into the sea, it will be done. And whatever you ask for in prayer, having faith and believing, you will receive." (Matthew 21:21-22 emphasis mine)

Don't misuse the power of words by talking too much without faith or talking too little about your faith. Choose kind and gentle words that lift people and quiet gossip and strife. Believe that Gods' grace will prevail through what you say.

August 3rd Entry: by Joyce Meyer.


My prayer ~

Give us boldness Lord and balance. Let us know when to speak and when to be quiet. May we always believe YOUR Grace will prevail and not allow Fear to hold us back! When dealing with a difficult situation may we have discernment and walk in YOUR Love and Compassion yet set those healthy boundaries at the same time.

Have a blessed weekend my friends! Please visit Spiritual Sundays! Thank you Charlotte and Ginger for hosting this wonderful place filled with Godls love and hope each and every week!

Girl that is on my mind often. Words are so powerful...they can bring life or death. my word for this year for myself is silence. Silent to keep from saying the wrong things and being silent to listen to God.
Have a blessed weekend!

Self-control is one of the fruits of the Spirit. I always pray that He fills me with His Spirit knowing that I can have discernment and self-control to say the right things or not be tempted to utter things that shouldn't go out in the first place...only by His power and might. Thank you sister Loren for this beautiful reminder. God bless and have a great weekend!

This sounds like a wonderful book of devotions. Sometimes I don't know what to say to someone so I will just say have a blessed day, and they give me such a gentle smile. Thank-you for sharing this book with us today.

I'm always praying that the Lord's grace will season my speech, because believe me, I need Him to soften my tone sometimes! I'm just so glad that He is so faithful!
