August 3, 2016 THE RIGHT WORDS TO SAY
There are so many times we don't have the right words to say. It may be when we want to comfort someone in need. It may be when we are trying to present a proposal to our manager. It may be when we need to tell someone bad news. Whatever the reason, when we don't have the right words to say, we can turn to God. He always knows what we should say and do. When we pray and have faith He will answer, we can trust Him to give us the right words to say.
Ephesians 6:19 "And pray for me, too. Ask God to give me the right words so I can boldly explain God's mysterious plan that the Good News is for Jews and Gentiles alike." (NLT)
Dear Lord, we know we should pray before speaking. Especially in those difficult conversations we have to have. We pray You will help us have the right words to say to those in need. We pray You will help us have the right words to say to those we are witnessing to. We pray You will help us have the right words to say to our friends, family and coworkers. Words that will be uplifting and give You the glory. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.
We need to go to God in pray when we are struggling with the right words to say.
God can help us with our words and give us the right words to say at just the right time.
When we are called to step out and witness to others, we shouldn't worry about what to say because God will help us.
Our faith in God and our study of His word will give us the right words to say when we need them.
Just as Jesus did, we need to go to God to have the right words to say when we need to share what is true.
Ecclesiastes 12:10 "The Teacher sought to find just the right words to express truths clearly." (NLT)
Focus: When we need the right words to say, we need to pray for God's help.
