Creating your Word Environment

WORDS2

I really understand how important it is to really keep myself immersed in prayer and allowing God to pour into me, through His word, on a consistent basis. I mean, I know I’m going to have opposition, but the question is, when it shows up, how do I respond? What is the approach
I take, or from what angle will I choose to look at it?

My response really determines how positive or how negative a situation turns out. Proverbs 15:1 puts it like this, “A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.”

So then, I must be cautious, in every encounter I have, as to which words I’m choosing. I need to be aware enough of the situation in order to decide if what I’m about to say is going to “turn away” or “stir up”? My motive is to keep an environment of peace, therefore I’m choosing wisely what flows out of my mouth. Which brings me back to my initial point that when I keep, let’s say…my “cup”, full of the word, and I’m in a steady mode of prayer and hearing from God, then the words that come forth are those that are edifying and cause for peacemaking.

We should always be aware of motives and our intentions so that in our presentation, it comes across in a manner that is both pleasant and understood. I don’t know about you, but I’m an advocate for PEACE! I need a constant flow from The Lord, both ways: I want Him to hear me and “receive” my prayers, and I definitely need to hear from Him! Amen? I don’t need anything blocking or interfering with my direct connection to God, especially in times like these. I gotta hear HIM!

So let’s be mindful today of our words and interactions.

Love ya! 🙂

  1. Amen you are so right. My tone and my body language can either turn away wrath or stir up unpleasantness in someone. So we need to be mindful in how we approach others.

    1. Isn’t it amazing the difference it makes, based solely on our word choices? I think if we make a habit of listening and hearing what we ourselves are saying, whether casually or being intentional, we’d see positive changes in the right direction! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
