#5765 – Pleasant & Timely

Good morning people who release something wonderful through the words that you speak.

Proverbs 15:23 MEV A man has joy by the answer of his mouth, and a word spoken in due season, how good it is!

Proverbs 15:26 MEV The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the Lord, but the words of the pure are pleasant words.

Oh, to be known for pleasant and timely words!

Have you ever heard the comment, “You just know the right thing to say!”?

It’s a wonderful thing to receive pleasant words at just the right time. It’s a joy to receive them, and it is also a joy to give them. And the truth is, you can be a dispenser of pleasant and timely words into people’s lives.

I guarantee every person reading this today is sometimes prompted to call someone and see how they are going. Maybe you feel a scripture for them, or it could be as simple as an encouraging word of gratitude for who they are and what they do.

Unfortunately, too many people don’t recognise this as the leading of the Holy Spirit. We excuse it as just our thoughts, and we put it aside as a distraction.

Now, go back to you receiving pleasant words from someone else.

How many times have you received a simple encouragement just when you needed it?

We all have! And yet, we are only receiving them because someone followed the leading of the Lord.

You and I can do the same! Yes, it might take a little effort, and yes, it might mean stepping out of our comfort zone. But it just might be exactly what someone needs right now. So, don’t delay! Pick up the phone, shoot them a text or an email, and together, let’s be known for words that release life and blessing.
