Today’s scriptures are about words. Your Words are powerful, Lord, because they create. Indeed, Lord, Your Word is forever settled in heaven. It is as unchanging as Your faithfulness. You established the earth by Your Word, and it abides. What You create is for a purpose.
Lord, Pr. 18 tells us that our words create, as well. Help my words to also have a purpose. Help me not to express my own heart, but to delight in understanding. Help the wellspring of wisdom flow from my mouth and not foolishness. Help my lips not to enter into contention or call for blows. I do not want my mouth to be my destruction, or be a snare for my soul. I want my mouth to honor and glorify You.
Keep me from haughtiness. Keep my ears and my lips closed to gossip. Let my ears wisely seek knowledge. Help my heart to be prudent, acquiring knowledge. Let the produce of my lips be good and not evil.
Lord, Pr. 18:21 says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Let my tongue speak life. Help me to be a wife who is honorable, loyal, and helpful. Help me to speak life into my husband. Let me to listen before speaking, and to answer softly.
Lord, I thank You that Your name is a strong tower that I can run to for safety. When I need protection, Lord, You are ever there; unchanging, and eternal. Thank You, Lord. Thank You that Your faithfulness will endure to the generations that come after me!
I love You, Lord,
