What Word Do You Speak: Gospel Today Devotional - 19th February, 2023

Words are very powerful, and once uttered may never be withdrawn. Through words, one can tear down or build up, lift or put down, encourage or discourage, etc. 

What Word Do You Speak: Gospel Today Devotional - 19th February, 2023

Let me start by saying as believers, the words we speak should affect other people so greatly that they are forever unable to recover from the influence of our words. The discouraged heart should leap for joy for he knows the words from your mouth will give him the courage and the encouragement he needs. Shouldn't people desire to be around you because of the words you speak? Let's see the passage of scripture below:

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones". (Proverbs 16:24).

The scripture here compares pleasant words with a honeycomb, and I want to believe that someone reading this today can attest to the fact that honey is sweet. Scarcely will anyone want to throw away honey because of its sweetness? No is the answer.

That's just what pleasant words can do. They can produce the sweetness a honeycomb produces in the life of a person. Why? Because those words act like a honeycomb that will be sweet to his soul (bringing about a soothing relief), and health to his bones (giving him the strength to live again).

It is therefore important that as believers, we speak pleasant words to the end that those who are weak can be strengthened to hope and live again, that the discouraged be encouraged, that the troubled in heart receives peace and calmness for his soul, etc.

The word of the Lord comes today to exhort us to rise as believers to the point where the only words that come from our mouth are pleasant words that are sweet to the soul of those who hear, and health to their bones. The Lord help us all.

Thought for the day: Let the words that come from you to others as a believer be pleasant words that give people hope and strength.
