“Dear Holy Spirit, shine your light into the places of darkness in my life. Show me my sins, everything that blocks me from encountering God and having Jesus as my Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
"Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for our sins and being victorious over death and sin. I confess my sin to you(pause, to tell Jesus what the Holy Spirit has shown you). Forgive my sins by your blood and help me follow you. Holy Spirit, fill me that I may be able to receive your gift to love God and His people. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."
Today's Proverbs gives us a good advice and instruction, reminding us of our gracious words can bring people wellness and blessings.
What are gracious words? Is that we say something good in order for us to please other people? Or, can we deceive other people by saying pleasant words but we do not mean that?
New King James Version translates that as "Pleasant", and NIV which I am using now as "Gracious".
Actually, gracious words in the original Hebrew word means the words pleasing God and also give other people a pleasant feeling. If we know how to speak gracious words, then people will taste a kind of sweetness like a honeycomb and can even heal people!
I wish and pray that you know how to use gracious words to bless other people!
