On choosing WORDS

 

John 1:1 

King James Version

1 In the beginning was the Word, 

and the Word was with God, 

and the Word was God.


Why must we choose our words carefully?

Why must every word be of God?

That John verse says it all.

The Word started with God.

He is the Word.

As such, every word we have must reflect God in our heart.

Hollywood has erred so much, with her cuss words, and using the Lord's name in vain.

Surely you know that our Lord's name has been bandied about carelessly, heartlessly, used as an expletive, almost at every turn.

As if it's hip to do so.

It's not, for God's name is sacred.

Exodus 20:7 

King James Version

7 Thou shalt not take 

the name of the Lord thy God in vain; 

for the Lord will not hold him guiltless 

that taketh his name in vain.


These are the words we must respect:

God.

Jesus.

Holy Spirit.

Scripture teach us what words matter to God.

To know how many words (not necessarily God's Word) there are in the world, here's a list of it.

Of course, only those born again can really respect God's Word, for the Holy Spirit becomes your teacher.

He will be the source for ALL words that honor God.

You can't possibly go wrong if you are God's.

Every word in writing or speaking, is given careful attention, making sure it pleases the Lord.

That is the work of a born again -- to serve the Lord, to be obedient to His will, to be instructed only by the Lord.

Well, this blog was created and inspired by SPIRIT, so I'm really careful what words I use, and publish.

I really want to get GOD's WORD right.

Thus, the use of Scripture, to support every thought or idea I have, or was led to.

I must never work from self.

All self has been offered to God.

It's the Holy Spirit who produces the words for me, knowing I love word play.

So we get to play a lot with words, reflecting the intelligence of Spirit alone.

He is the Teacher of all things, and I merely follow His prompts and inspiration.

Become born again, and never again will you fail with words, whether with choice, or delivery.

You will become the work piece, and mouth piece, of the Lord.

And that's really all I care about.

I cannot cause anyone to err.

My words must reflect only what the Holy Spirit chose.

Every word must reflect the Spirit of God in me.

Every word must speak of His power.

Every word must reflect His love.

Every word must be of God.

It is for His GLORY alone.

To know how fast the Holy Spirit works, like in my particular case (not of my power), we wrote this piece in practically 11 minutes.

Yup*, it's that fast.

And precise.


*Is "yup" found in God's dictionary?

I guess the Lord allows me a few of those modern-day words.

He knows I have a playful heart, and allows me to use a few of those words for emphasis.

At least, it's not a cuss word.
