There is one whose words are always true, can be trusted implicitly and always give life! It is the Word of the Lord. It might be the still small voice heard while sitting in silence or it might be the written Word of the Lord.
12For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. 13Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable.Hebrews 4:12-13
It seems probable this scripture freaks someone out. After all, “nothing in all creation is hidden from God?” That’s a lot of something!
It can also be a deep comfort. Nothing is hidden. No one can do or say anything that God misses. He is the one to whom I give account for my words at the end of the day.
Trust him with your words, admit when a tough situation approaches and ask him to control your tongue. Then surrender to his all-knowing nature. He will show you the motivation behind your words and your secret thoughts and desires. Submit them to him and he will give you the desires of your heart!
4Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires. 5Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you. 6He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn, and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun. 7Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act.Psalm 37:4-7
That is a powerful promise right there. I believe it is what someone needs to know as they prepare for the weekend! So stay strong, be steady and take it slow! The Lord is with you!
These have been timely for me this week. Thanks for the insights.
