Words … He comes because of my words … {Day 3}

Leave a comment


Woke up before the sun … knowing that God wanted me to pray. In the seeking of the Him in me I am finding the shoulds …

HAPPY THURSDAY … MY ATTEMPT AT A BRIEF POST … WON’T YOU SHARE WITH US YOUR HEART? SIMPLY LINK IN WITH THE LINKZ TOOL AT THE END! BLESSINGS.

A Few Words Thursday @ HOPEannFAITH

       

Because (S)he loves me, says the LORD, I will rescue her; I will protect her, for she acknowledges my name. (S)he will call upon me , and I will answer …Psalm 91:14-15a

My words … I deal in words {obviously} and this is a very important thing, because it is my words that He responds to …

Do I say I love Him enough {do I understand and truly feel that love I profess?}

Do I consider life and death before I use my words.

When I call on Him do I truly want His answer … His rescue? 

Our mothers spent a zillion hours teaching us to be polite, to watch our words, to be kind with our thoughts …

Sticks and Stones may break my bones but Words can never

 hurt me!”

According to God and His Word this is the most harmfully lifelong lie out there. It is our words that hurt the most. It is words that kill a spirit and make a being stop thriving. Just look at the world we live in …

Have you ever extended a kind word and had the person either act as if they’ve never heard kindness before or get angry, because they actually think you are mocking them? This is the climate of the world we live in.

But God! God is good.

The angel in Daniel 10:12 says: ” I have come because of your words.”

God, directly to us, in Psalm 91:15: ” He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him …”

Our words determine our daily relationship with God. Our words, in our day to day, determine whether the angels of God are commanded concerning us, to guard us in our ways (in our daily life) …

Its about what we SAY …

In this quest of finding God in me … in my life, daily … I see it requires me to be concerned with my words. I must speak God’s truths, in light of the world’s truths. I must call on God, and not my confidantes, who may be living harder than I am. Don’t get me wrong … God speaks to us in many ways; for most primarily through the Word, but definitely through His other children! What I am saying is that if I reach out to a human first it stays God’s hand in my dealings.

If I dwell in the shelter of the Most High; rest in the shadow of the Almighty, If I say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress, My God in whom I trust … {Psalm 91}

Why then would I seek the counsel of man first … are my words of Faith and Trust true …

This is what I find in this journey [and while I’ve added a new twist to this journey with the 30 quest; the journey remains the same.] … I find that when I seek God in my day to day He sends the right person(s) to impart to me what I need.

And I often find Him in the writings of other Christian women like Kelly Sauer and Jennifer and Lisa-Jo and Ann VosKamp and others. He sends their words with the answers … and these ladies do what I strive to do … we write what He gives us, to share with you.

He comes because of my words … what I think … what I speak … what I write, and when I use those words right, God shows up.

What are you saying in your life today? Did you wake before the sun with kind thoughts for yourself, for your day? Are you ready to stop speaking the banalities of the world and begin speaking the life God intended for your life?

It’s my humble suggestion that you first read Psalm 91 ~ God’s love letter to us directly ~ all the promises contained within! See yourself as the child who acknowledges Him and see the promises and blessings that come with that simple task.

Blessings Loves.

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
