Day 28: The Power of Your Words
“I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure.” (Psalm 16:8-9, NIV)
Wherever you are today and whatever season or situation you find yourself, our God is with you. He is equipping you and calling you toward wholeness and victory in Him. Whether it’s the words you direct toward others, the ones directed at yourself, or the ones with which God beckons you, there is hope and there is life to the full.
You have given me the beautiful gift of words as well as the unique positioning as Mama to my children. Lord, let my words be pleasing to You (Psalm 19:14). Let them give life, not death (Proverbs 18:21). May they unite, not divide. Fill me with your wisdom, Father, so that I may know when to speak and when to remain quiet. In the moments when my patience is tried and my brokenness tempting to lead me astray, point me back to You that I may speak of Your glory and rest in Your security (Psalm 16:9). Lord, give me eyes to see my children’s hearts so that I may guide them correctly. Help me to lead them well even in the midst of chaos and overwhelm. And, Father, please reveal to me where I have erred, and humble me in repentance. Thank You for loving my children and myself beyond even my understanding. Thank You for redemption and for Your grace that wraps around me, covering all my offenses. In You I rest, and in You I seek righteousness. In Your precious and holy name I pray, Amen.
