DEVOTION: “Sometimes people wonder why it is that the Holy Spirit is always expressing Himself in words. It cannot be otherwise. You could not understand it otherwise. You cannot understand God by shakings, and yet shakings may be in perfect order sometimes. But you can always tell when the Spirit moves and brings forth utterances. They are always utterances that magnify God. The Holy Spirit has a perfect plan. He comes right through every man who is so filled and brings divine utterances so that we may understand what the mind of the Lord is.” (Pg 160)
We were speaking about this the other night on our Worship Underground Bible Study. How there are moments in our lives, in our conversations, in our experiences where words start to come out of our mouths and we have no idea where they are coming from.
Words of encouragement, of hope, of grace, of forgiveness, of mercy.
Sometimes, we utter these words and we actually don’t know where the thoughts are coming from. This is from the Spirit. The Spirit in us uttering words that magnify God.
These words magnify God because they are words of the Father. Words of hope, love, forgiveness. Words that breath life into the person receiving them.
Today. Know that your words are powerful, that sometimes they speak life to others. Sometimes they speak hope to others. Sometimes they speak forgiveness to others. They allow the person receiving them to realize the truth of the Father. To realize the hope of the Father.
Let your words speak life today.
PRAYER: Pray today that God would use your words to give life to others.
