Wise Words Bring Healing

Drawing Closer to Christ

Proverbs 12:18 NIV, “The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”

As a child we had a jingle we would sing, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” Looking back, I now know that this was far from the truth. Words can hurt. They do have an impact, rather good or bad. We have the power of life and death in our tongues (Proverbs 18:21). They can inspire us to be all God purposed us to be, or they can hinder our progress and leave us stagnant. Words can destroy lives and keep people from seeing the beauty God sees in them, and instead cause them to focus on everything that seems wrong.

🌻🏵 GRATITUDE 🌷💐

A heart of gratitude is a heart of gold

🌸 BELIEVING PRECEDES RECEIVING 💮

HERRY CHIC COUNSELS

While I was on my study on one of the days, this topic got impressed on my heart and I kept on pondering on it. I just had to pen it down. The text I read preceding the nudge is:

But without faith, it is impossible to [walk with God and] please Him, for whoever comes [near] to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He rewards those who [earnestly and diligently] seek Him.

HEBREWS 11:6 (AMP)

The focus is on the “b” part of the stated text. They who come to God must BELIEVE that He EXISTS (He is real, true and everlasting, etc.) and that He REWARDS those who SEEK Him. 🔥

This is a graceful message for me I must say. For us to receive all or better put, possess all of His plethoric blessings unto us as His children as read in:
