#4433 – Speak Life

Good morning people who pray into what is happening in the world

Ephesians 4:29-30 NIV “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.”

We grieve the Holy Spirit of God when we talk in a way that dishonours God and people.

We are called to pray into things, not speak against things.

We are called to speak into things, not speak about things.

Made in the image of God and called according to God’s purpose, the people of God have been commissioned to speak life into that which is dead, diseased, hurting, broken, dysfunctional and damaged. We are not called to add to the confusion!

Social media can be a blessing, but more often than not, it is a hotbed for gossip, slander, attacks, opinions, fear, negativity, criticism and downright ungodliness. Blunt as this is, I see the evidence of this in too many conversations by Believers, and it is not right.

It is time to speak life! It is time to pray for! It is time to prophesy into! It is time to be creative with our words and reflect the character and nature of God! It is time for a shift in the language of God’s people!
