Jeremiah 1:9 (NIV)
Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “I have put my words in your mouth . . .”
I have placed words within you which need to be spoken. Spoken in love, wisdom, kindness, compassion; spoken in ways which reflect the true and full nature of who I am.
Do not be afraid to talk about the “hard things” in life. Even conversations of correction and discipline can be done in a way which brings freedom and deeper levels of connection. To talk about “hard things” brings light to darkness and freedom from heaviness.
I do acknowledge that this is not always easy or comfortable. Bold communication requires bravery, but I encourage you today to speak the words I have given you to be spoken.
For it is my heart to see my people shaped into bold communicators.
People who can speak the truth in a way which beautifully reflects me, bringing life and abundance wherever the truth is spoken. Do not allow yourself to keep the words I give you unsaid, laying dormant within. Trust me to carry you through – to fill your mouth with choice words which shift people into alignment with me, speaking life into every situation.
Activation: Ask yourself today, “Am I afraid to speak?” Whatever your answer, spend some time processing this with Holy Spirit. If needed, break off all fear in this area by repenting, breaking all partnership with fear, and asking for a fresh infilling of courage. Next, ask Holy Spirit if there are any important conversations that need to be had. Ask for courage and wisdom to have these conversations.
Proverbs 2:6 (NIV)
For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth comes knowledge and understanding.
1 Corinthians 13:1 (NIV)
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
