DAY 158 (2020) - Gracious words are a honeycomb! (Please click here for English podcast)




Silence

1.   Put on your “brakes” and stop for a moment of silence
2.   Wait for God. Breathe deep for God's peace and feel His presence. Exhale your worries.

Praise and Thanksgiving

1.   Think through your day, all the times that made you smile
2.   Thank God for all those moments, and for all those people

Confession and Repentance (Subjective Shifting Devotion Method http://bishopsilas.blogspot.ca/2009/08/count-down-5-subject-shifting-devotion.html)

1.  Pray for the Holy Spirit to shine on you that you are able to discover your sins and be willing to repent:



     “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.”



2.  Through the Holy Spirit, examine yourself for a short silence and then pray:

     "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."

The Word, Time with Abba (Psalm 127:3-5, 2 Samuel 1:1-53; Acts 4:1-37; Proverbs 16:24)


    Today's main passage:
Gracious words are a honeycomb,
    sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

Proverbs 16:24


Let's have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passage we have just read. Offer this time to Jesus as you listen to him.

    My Listening
    The topic I received today from Jesus is: Gracious words are a honeycomb!

Yesterday we talked about lots of people cannot sleep well due to this few months of pandemic! What I received today is that not only do people cannot sleep well, but lots of people cannot say positive words, the negative mentality treating family members and friends make people uncomfortable and sometimes painful!

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!


     Dear Lord Jesus,  
     Help us to be willing to use gracious words that you are pleased and people being blessed. In Jesus Name we pray, Amen.
    
     
     Reflect on these questions:
     1. How can you be able to use gracious words that God is pleased and people being blessed?
     
      2.  What is your next step to make that happen?
