Proverbs 12:25 Heaviness in the heart of man makes it droop, but a good word makes it glad.
The world in which we live presents itself daily with the opportunity to take on it’s cares that often causes us to be burden, stressed, worry or even feel anxious.
As we look around our world today, sometimes it seems very hard to find a kind word for there is so much words of negativity, defeat, hate, rage, worry and anger that are tearing down at every turn, the hearts and minds of many people.
If we could be honest for a moment, the opportunities to worry and be full of anxiety is great and we all at times, often accept those opportunities of worry and anxiety verses faith and trust in the Lord our God.
Yes, we all love to hear kind words spoken to us from others but the truth of the matter is not everyone does it so when that happens we as the people of God have to know where to go for the help and hope that we stand in need of in this crazy world.
There is hope in the midst of life’s storms. Jesus is it!
There is a song that I heard every Sunday growing up as a child that is titled “My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less”. The lyrics to this song says: My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame but wholly lean on Jesus' name. On Christ the solid Rock I stand. All other ground is sinking sand. When darkness hides His lovely face I rest on God’s unchanging grace. In every high and stormy gale my anchor holds within the veil. On Christ the solid Rock I stand
I quote this song often to myself, even yet today. It give me hope and reminds me of who God is and my need not to worry about the cares of this world for God not only knows about them, but He also cares about me even in the midst of them.
People of God when encouragement is needed or if you are ever in need of a good word, the best place to start is with the Word of God in the Bible for the scriptures are not only uplifting, they are guaranteed to make our heart, mind, soul and spirit glad.
The more I read the Bible the more I see, appreciate and understand God’s love for me. I truly believe that knowing who God is, knowing who we are in Him is the secret to a life that is truly filled with good words and a glad heart.
When we keep our minds on the things of God and not of this world, we will find less opportunities for worry, stress and offense from those who do not, will not and just plainly refuse to speak kind words to us.
People of God we decide what we feed our spirit! We can either accept or refuse for the choice is ours. I am determined that I am not entering words that tear down and not lift up. Those words would receive a deaf ear from me.
Today is the day to allow God’s Words and His truth that is found in His bible to penetrate our hearts so that regardless of what our circumstance or situation, be it good or bad, we WILL trust God instead of worry or fear, knowing that He is still in control for He alone is the Sovereign God of the universe.
A good word from the Lord to all of us on today is found in 1 Peter 5:7 God cares for you, so turn all your worries over to Him.
People of God speak life for they are words that build up and produces the fruit of gladness, joy, peace and not mourning.
My prayer for you all on today is that we ALL would seek God in helping us by giving us His grace and wisdom so that we may know when and how to offer words that build up and not tear down to those we encounter on a daily basis that are hurting and wounded.
The good news on today people of God is the fact that we don’t have to worry and be afraid for joy comes in the morning and troubles don’t last always.
People of God be anxious for nothing but in all things with prayer and thanksgiving with supplication, make your request know unto God.
REMEMBER, A GOOD WORD MAKES A GLAD HEART!
