A Word in Season

22 10 2009


Handle them carefully, for words have more power than atom bombs.

— Pearl Strachan

“[the servant of G-d says] The L-rd G-d has given me the tongue of a disciple and of one who is taught, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary. He wakens me morning by morning. He wakens my ear to hear as a disciple [as one who is taught].”

–Isaiah 50:4

“You can bless people with the words of your mouth. The power of life and death is in the tongue (see Proverbs 18:21), therefore you can speak life to others. Proverbs 15:23 says, “A man has joy in making an apt answer, and a word spoken at the right moment—how good it is!” When you edify or exhort, you are urging people forward in Christ. You can actually hold people back or encourage them forward just by your words. What a tremendous honor to be used by G-d to lift up another. Ask Him to teach you to give words in season that will heal and encourage, bless and edify.” –Joyce Meyer, Ending Your Day Right

Words are a very powerful thing. They cause action. The world was created by G-d’s words. People are healed and demons are vanquished by one word—the name of Jesus. Good days have happened for me through words of encouragement and my heart has been completely torn to shreds by words. We need to realize how powerful our words are. The L-rd could really bless someone and you is you choose to step outside of yourself and encourage someone around you. We are sent out to be Christ’s fragrance so we need to be showing the loves that has been lavished upon us in our words. If you ask for the L-rd to place someone in your path, you may be surprised yourself how the Spirit fills in the words for us. Just be obedient and love on people with your words.

By the name of Jesus,

I love your post, but wonder why you leave out the o’s in Lord and God?

Sorry to take so long to respond. I didn’t see the comment. The reason that I do that comes out of a Hebrew tradition. They were so afraid to write out the name of G-d on scrolls just in case the scrolls had to be thrown away. Basically, its out of respect for the holiness of G-d’s name. I hope that makes sense 🙂 Thanks for reading! Keep on sharing your input! 🙂
