Wholesome Words Should Only Be Spoken

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Some people think they can do anything they want, and it is ok but that is not true. Likewise, it is the same thing when some people speak. Some people think they can say anything they want and it is ok, but that is not true. The words that come out of a person’s mouth should be clean, pure and respectful to others, and most of all pleasing to God. Some people think it is ok to pray, praise and worship God one minute and then the next minute, they think it is ok to curse at someone or even use curse words in their conversation. That is a complete disrespect and unacceptable. Every word that comes out of a person’s mouth should be a word that a person would not be ashamed of and a word that a person should be able to repeat.

James 3:9-12 says “With our tongues we both bless the Lord and Father and curse human beings made in God’s likeness. Blessing and cursing come from the same mouth. My brothers and sisters, it just shouldn’t be this way! Both fresh water and salt water don’t come from the same spring, do they? My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree produce olives? Can a grapevine produce figs? Of course not, and fresh water doesn’t flow from a saltwater spring either.”

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Did You Try To Make A Promise To God And Then Take It Back

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

It is not wise for a person to make promises to God because there is not a guarantee that a promise of any kind made would be able to be kept and fulfilled. Just like God keeps His word to people, a person should realize and consider that God is going to hold a person to their word, as well. A person should always really think carefully and prayerfully before making a promise or vow to God of any kind, because a quick and hasty promise made could cause a person to have regrets later on.

Proverb 20:25 says “It’s dangerous to promise something to God too quickly. After you’ve thought about it, it may be too late.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a blessed day.

Be Careful Of What Comes Out Of Your Mouth

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

There is power in every word that is spoken and released out of a person’s mouth. Words can heal and they can kill. Words can build and they can tear down. Words can bless and they can curse. Words can encourage and they can discourage. What a person speaks can mean life or death; that is why it is very important to think before speaking because once a word is released, it cannot be taken back. Every word that comes forth from a person’s mouth is instantly released into the atmosphere.

Proverbs 18:20-21 says “People will be rewarded for what they say; they will be rewarded by how they speak. What you say can mean life or death. Those who speak with care will be rewarded.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

God Is The Only True And Real Promise Keeper

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Wisdom should always be used in communicating, even with God. A person should always think, even before they release words unto God in prayer. You never want to say anything that you will regret, such as making promises to God. Whenever a person makes a promise to God; God expects the person to do as they said. It is better for a person not to make a vow or promise than to make a vow or promise anything to God, and then not do as they said they would. God never goes back on His word to people and God wants and deserve the same respect in return. 

Ecclesiastes 5:2&4-5 says “Don’t be too quick to speak. Don’t be in a hurry to say anything to God. He is in heaven. You are on earth. So use only a few words when you speak. When you make a promise to God, don’t wait too long to carry it out. He isn’t pleased with foolish people. So do what you have promised. It is better to make no promise at all than to make a promise and not keep it.” (NIRV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Do Not Play The Role Of A Fool

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.” 

Whenever a foolish, unwise or ignorant comment or response is made or directed at you within a conversation, the proper way to respond is by not responding, at all . Even though you may want to respond, there is no need of you looking or sounding as foolish as the other person. Allow your silence to speak for you because even though you may be quiet, you are still relaying a message. 

Proverbs 26:4-5 says “Don’t answer fools when they speak foolishly, or you will be just like them. Answer fools when they speak foolishly, or they will think they are really wise.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Your Mouth Can Save You From Trouble 

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Wisdom should always be used in the words that a person release out of their mouth. Because there is power in the words you speak, you should be very careful of every word that you allow to go into the atmosphere and environment. Everything that you release out of your mouth, you can actually make it happen for yourself; whether it be good or bad, negative or positive. The safest and wisest thing to do is to always think before you speak. 

Proverb 21:23 says “If you want to stay out of trouble, be careful what you say.” (GNT)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

You Should Never Make A Promise To God 

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

A person should never be too quick to make a promise to God because the person will be tested eventually on the promise, and may end up failing the test. Once a promise is made, it cannot be taken back so it is better not to make a promise due to how you may be feeling at a particular moment.

Proverb 20:25 says “It’s dangerous to promise something to God too quickly. After you’ve thought about it, it may be too late.” (NCV) 

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

​Encouragement for June 27, 2017

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

There is power in every word that is released out of a person’s mouth. The words a person speak can either bring life or death to their situations or circumstances. Words can either heal or kill, as well as tear down or build up. Only wise, positive, encouraging and inspirational words should be released into the atmosphere and environment because these are the type of words that give life to people, to situations and circumstances. 

Proverbs 18:20 & 21 says “You will have to live with the consequences of everything you say. What you say can preserve life or destroy it; so you must accept the consequences of your words.” (Good News Bible) 

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.
