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.

Verses for further meditation
Genesis 11:1; 1 Kings 3:10

Thoughts for Business and the work place
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.
