Lion Bites, give me your voice – don’t let any more unwholesome talk slip out of your mouth. Glorify me – out loud! Take MY words as your words. Train that tongue! Speak to others and to yourself only with my voice – you know how that sounds!
Words are the lynchpin of your day. Words will heal or make feeble, encourage or tear down, promote or decimate. The year ahead is filled with good works that I have prepared for you to walk in, but you will need to continually agree with me in order to cut through the dense jungle of discouragement, frailty and hopelessness that has sprung up in the nations. Use your voice well, and it will be a weapon, sharp, bright, resonant with Truth. Hard work? Yes. But oh, the rewards are great!
Ephesians 4:29 TPT
And never let ugly or hateful words come from your mouth, but instead let your words become beautiful gifts that encourage others; do this by speaking words of grace to help them.
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
