This word (from Joel and Victoria Osteen) is a few days late, but still so relevent.
"If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God..."
(1 Peter 4:11, NKJV)
TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria
When God wants to speak to people on earth, do you know how He does it? Most often, He speaks through His people. He uses our voice to bring life, healing and hope to others. When you reach out to someone, when you're kind and speak encouragement, God's voice is blended with your voice. Your words become His words. The natural takes on a supernatural. That's why you can say something ordinary, something simple like "You look beautiful" or "You can make it," and it's life changing to the other person. To you it's nothing, but when God takes your natural and puts His super with it, it can impact that person's destiny.
Today, remember, you are God's voice in the earth. When you speak to others, declare what God would say about them. Let your words be used to bring life, hope and blessing. Speak as the oracles of God and be His mouthpiece everywhere you go.
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Heavenly Father, thank You for choosing and using me. I surrender every area of my being to You. Use me to be a blessing to others. Give me Your peace, strength and joy as I keep my mind stayed on You. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
- Joel & Victoria Osteen
