The Language of Love

Nehemiah 13:24 And their children spake half in the speech of Ashdod, and could not speak in the Jews’ language, but according to the language of each people.

God has a language given to His children. It is a language of love, grace and seeds of life, given to mark us apart. It has long periods of silence … but is a language that bears fruit in godly living as it spreads the seed of Kingdom culture.

Col_4:6 Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.

God expects our words to be different …schooled in God’s laboratory of chastenings and steeped in kingdom lessons. We do not curse as others do … our yea is yea. We are unique, peculiar and full of divine wisdom. But this is only if we have set ourselves apart for God … only when we have learnt to obey Him in our consecration. Where we have not, we speak half for God and half for the enemy and of no use to either….only good to be spit out, neither hot nor cold. The masterpiece of hell is the half-baked saint …sometimes gentle, sometimes wild …sometimes truthful, often a liar … sometimes full of faith at other times dispensing doubts. Many churches are built on the compromise that attracts these half-baked mixtures … it is the other way, the broad way that does not lead to salvation, but that many are deceived to take. Search out your words. Receive grace for salvation in Christ… a salvation that is to the uttermost – saving even our speech.

Leaders are men of few words. Words of love

Suggestions for Prayer

Lord, help me – may my words be ever pleasing to you. Amen

As Nehemiah’s wall was built, so will we see a reconstruction in all that may appear in distress and in waste. Nehemiah trusted and feared God, putting his faith in the Almighty whose strength is limitless to exceed all our expectations. Look out daily for Nehemiah’s Wall in 2015 and do invite friends to subscribe to the free email or social media posts. I am praying someone with a burden to be used by God in building will receive a fresh vision and get the job done.

Choose Carefully

Nehemiah 13:1 On that day they read in the book of Moses in the audience of the people; and therein was found written, that the Ammonite and the Moabite should not come into the congregation of God for ever;

Why does God forbid certain company? He is a God of Grace …was Ruth not a Moabitess. But God is also a God of rules … and His rules are not grievous …they are for our own good. God knows it takes years, to rebuild and strengthen our faith and be who wants us to be …but only a day of pollution can bring things down so fast. It is so much more difficult to get a pure white pigment than to stain it which takes seconds.

The best way to defeat sin is to keep it far from your dwelling. Interactions with people who do not know your God must be guarded … because we are in a battle in which satan wants no prisoners, but a complete destruction of our joy, peace and relationship with God. Does this mean we are not to interact? Of course not, but it does mean we should be sensitive to dangers especially when we forge close relationships with those who do not share our faith. Many have fallen under the laps of many Delilahs … many Solomons have been bewitched by strange women and their ways. So much of God’s ways have been diluted which is even more dangerous than outright disregard – we can be more easily brought to repent outright variations from God’s word, but we celebrate subtle deviations and many are led astray.

The one who is safe has been protected by God’s grace …but if we mix the ways of the heathen with the things of God and call it grace … we slip into a sleep from which only God in His mercy can awaken us. It is best to obey God like a child.

Psalm 119:140 Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.

Verses for further meditation
Proverbs 30:5; Mat 5:8

Thoughts for Business and the work place
There are things that must be kept out and never embraced. Adjust immediately when God reveals these to you. Discover them in His word.
