2/13/13 Daily Devotion

1 Peter 4:11 If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.

Words are filled with more power than we could ever imagine. They have the power to damage a relationship in an instant or repair a broken heart within two. They possess the ability to destroy a reputation or create a positive recommendation. Each day, we are given the opportunity to utilize our words to influence this world. As Christians, we must fill the air with positivity and compassion. We must express the love of God through the gift of our vocality. Christians need to speak to all people as if they were directly speaking within the presence of God. Knowing that God is listening to us speak, knowing that our words can positively change someone’s life, knowing that our words can change someone’s direction, we must speak in a manner that glorifies God and edifies all those listening.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me utilize my words to bring positivity into this world.

  1. A constant battle for me – to use my words to glorify Him. Nice post.

  2. Thanks! You are not alone. We all have trouble with this at one point or another, myself included.
