Are you speaking pleasant words?
"Pleasant words are as honeycomb, sweet to the mind and healing to the body" (Proverbs 16:24).
Do you look for good things to say about yourself and others? Are you speaking pleasant words?
The Bible tells us that pleasant words are healing to the body. Kind and flattery words of this world make you feel good in the body, but they can destroy the soul and spirit. But the Word of God although compared to a double edge sword is soft and healing to a heart that is open to receiving it. And if the Word of God is not living in you and you are not rooted in it, the unpleasant words of this world can destroy your whole being - body, soul and spirit.
Do you need healing in your body-physically? Spiritually? Emotionally? Your words can bring that healing. Start speaking pleasant words-words of life, encouragement, and thanksgiving. Guard your heart by making sure you are only listening to pleasant, life-giving words. If there's something on the TV or radio that isn't bringing life to your soul, turn it off. If someone's having a conversation that's not uplifting or productive, don't be a part of it. Choose to meditate on God's Word which, according to Hebrews, is living and active and full of pleasant to your whole being. As you choose life by choosing life-giving words, you'll see God's healing operating in your body. You'll feel strength and peace in your soul and spirit, and you will move forward into the abundant life God has in store for you!
[ Prayer for the Day ]
Father in Heaven, thank You for Your Word which is truth that sets me free. I repent today for any words that have brought destruction into my life or the lives of those around me. I ask that You uproot every negative seed that is contrary to Your Word. I choose words of life today, that I may glorify You. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
[ Reference Scriptures ]
Hebrews 4:12 [RSV]
12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
|The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
