Word Up

'Everyone enjoys a fitting reply; it is wonderful to say the right thing at the right time!' Proverbs 15:23 NLT


Over the next few days, we’ll be looking at words. In fairness, if you read this mag you’ll spend a fair time looking at the little beauties. All over the page, aren’t they? But. This time we’re actually getting to grips with the power of words themselves. The power to heal, restore, to bring grace into conversation. Use them wisely and they’ll become a tool for blessing others. Ever said something without thinking, that caused hurt, or been totally inappropriate for the situation? Knowing the right thing to say can sometimes be difficult while, at other times, it’s second nature to us. Here’s the thing: what we say is formed by what we think, and what we think is formed by what’s in our heart. ‘…As he thinks in his heart, so is he…’ (Proverbs 23:7 NKJ) We need to get these three parts of ourselves aligned with God in order to be able to say the right things at the right times. When we’re in a place to influence someone, it’s best to make sure our mind is set in the right place. If you can’t help but think how funny it would be if they fall over (literally or metaphorically), perhaps it’s not time to offer too much, words–wise. The best alternative is to think encouraging thoughts. Willing that person on, and filling your brain with good thoughts will fill your heart likewise. And since ‘the mouth speaks what the heart is full of’ (Luke 6:45 GNT), this kind of heart–filling is a good idea to fulfil the works God has prepared for us to do.
