Words of Life

 Proverbs 10-12; Romans 10

“The lips of the righteous know what is fitting…”

Proverbs 10:32

“From the fruit of his lips a man is filled with good things. Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”

Proverbs 12:14, 18

Our words have tremendous power both for good and for evil, depending on their use. Appropriate words in each setting require wisdom and discernment. Those who learn to use words for life-giving purposes are rewarded for that work. With wisdom, words can bring healing, restore trust, restore relationships, and restore confidence and hope. Our words reflect the state of our hearts, but require wisdom and self-control to be used, for maximum benefit and effect. The word of our testimony is a weapon in the hand of overcomers who give witness to God’s salvation and work in our lives. 

Without hearing God’s word, how can people believe in Him?

Words have the capacity to build faith and change someone’s eternal destiny.

“Lord Jesus, guide my words today. Fill my mouth with life-giving words that promote faith and healing, for your glory.”
