Proverbs 8:7 “For my mouth will utter Truth; wickedness is an abomination to my lips.”
Things GOD Never Said!
“Be a scorn-casting CHRISTian; be lukewarm
Just show Love yet be quick with Self righteous offense!”
“Be boastful and bold — as though your words are Truth;
even speak for ME through the opinions of youth!”
Yet these words are not Sovereign, not labeled as HIS!
They aren’t GOD’s commands but the Flesh’s pretense!
So measure all speech; guard your Tongue’s open door…
being careful to stand on HIS WORDS…which aren’t yours!
As HIServant reminding Self hourly to stand on The Written ROCK alone,
Devotional: Ecclesiastes 5:2 “Do not be rash with your mouth, And let not your heart utter anything hastily before GOD. For GOD is in heaven, and you on earth; Therefore let your words be few!”
Can’t tell you how many times I’ve read this verse and re-re-cautioned myself.
John 17:8 “For I have given them the words that YOU gave me, and they have received them and have come to know in truth that I came from YOU; and they have believed that YOU sent me.”
Words Matter! But not ours, only HIS which even CHRIST was intentionally stating HE only spoke what the FATHER told HIM!
Psalm 25:5 “Lead me in YOUR truth and teach me, for you are the GOD of my salvation; for YOU I wait all the day long.”
Let me only speak, write, share and express YOUR WORDS, oh LORD GOD! Strip all foolishness from me so that just YOUR truths remain!
Amen and amen!
