Words are so powerful ~ We cut and we kill, but give account we will.
I love the silence and I’m more aware of its power lately as I feel the need to keep silent. Words and the heart say so much as words tell us what’s on a person’s heart. Out of the heart the mouth speaks, and guarding our tongue keeps our soul from trouble.
If I had known the power of words in my youth, not even half of them would have escaped through the gate that should have been so guarded. I sat in the swing this morning with the feeling of the Holy Spirit coming over me and felt the need to repent of words.
I opened my bible to Matthew 12 where it spoke of words – so powerful a verse. Whether writing or speaking, guard the words that escape.
The flesh man cannot live in the wilderness, fasting and being alone with God. Hurts and unforgiveness dealt with there in the secret place of peaceful silence.
