When we choose our words wisely, God will work through us to strengthen others. When we just throw our words out there thinking only of ourselves, Satan will us our words to hurt others. No matter what we say, our words our strong and powerful either for good or bad. Let’s be sure we use the right words today that will lift up others and encourage them to draw close to God. Our words are to be used for the purpose of strengthening others, encouraging them and building them up in the Lord.
1 Corinthians 14:3 “But one who prophesies strengthens others, encourages them, and comforts them.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, we always want to say and do the right things for You. However, sometimes we say and do things without thinking. And our words come out hurtful rather than helpful. Lord, please give us Your insight and Your wisdom to help others with our words. Show us what words to say that will lift them up and direct them toward You. Allow our words to give them Your answer they need to hear. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
We may not always know the right things to say, but God knows and can help us use our words to encourage others.
When we use our words to help others, God can strengthen both us and them to do what is right.
We can’t predict the outcome of any situation but we do know how to find God’s will in His word and we can direct others to Him in our words.
Our words should be used to lift others up and not put them down.
Our words are to be used for the purpose of strengthening others, encouraging them and building them up in the Lord.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 “So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.” (NLT)
