Posted on 07/08/2013 1:04:52 PM PDT by Frank Broom
What words are you speaking, this is just a quick word about being careful of the words you speak. The words you are speaking have a direct influence on what is happening in your life. In the Bible there are instances that reveal this truth, take Ruth for example in Ruth 2:2 before she was to go out to get food for her and her mother in law she said, "Let me now go to the field, and glean ears of corn after him in whose sight I shall find grace." Now suppose she would have talked about how bad times were and all they didn't have then that's what she would have experienced. How about Joshua and the children of Isreal, before they made it to the Promised Land in Deuteronomy 7:1 God told them there was 7 nations mightier than they, but how were they going to defeat them. God told Joshua, "This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth..." and as a result he would make his way prosperous. His way would be made prosperous by the words that would come out of his mouth. And there's David going up against Goliath he said exactly what he was going to do to him. He didn't talk about how big he was. He didn't talk about how experienced he was as a warrior. He talked his future not his present circumstances. What are you speaking of, if you are looking for a job are you talking how there's no jobs or are you speaking favor over yourself. What are you speaking.
I see what you are saying.
The ancient Hebrews did not grow corn. She would have been gleaning barley or what we now call spelt, or wheat.
We are to say what The Word says and not against it. This is always a good reminder! Thanks.
Corn was the word the English used for wheat:
” ‘Twas upon a Lammas night,
and corn rigs are bonnie
Beneath the moon’s unclouded light
I held awa’ wi’ Annie....
Corn rigs and barley rigs,
corn rigs are bonnie
I’ll ne’er forget that joyful night
amang the rigs wi’ Annie.”
- Robert Burns
I am retired. I don’t have that need to speak words about work.
I worry about this nation, yes. (words) I worry about the loss of Constitutional Rights. (words) I worry about the evident brainwashing of Communism in our school systems. (words) I encourage the ill health of those who are engaged in this endeavor within our nation. (words) I encourage the coming senility and madness, to be more swift upon those who have been elected, and are destroying this nation from the inside. (words)
I encourage those who strive to reclaim America, as she once was, being prosperous, bountiful, with a place among nations - and not the joke of same, where folks once careed much for themselves, their cities, and the nation, as a whole. (words) And should the day come, when We The People do more than make noise about the corrupt government, I am ready to be a part of “that tree-watering party”. (words)
Long Live The Republic.
There are just as many examples (if not more) of very negative fellows. Job, Jonah, and Jacob all come to mind as well as Moses and Thomas. God accepts us as we are.
The real trouble is Christians tend to gravitate to positive message types. I wonder how many of us would want to listen to Jeremiah or Ezekiel these days.
