The words of the Lord are pure words; As silver tried in a furnace on the earth, refined seven times. Psalm 12:6
Why is the Bible so powerful and meaningful to people? The Psalmist says that God’s words have be refined seven times. That’s a poetic way of saying God has perfected what He wanted to say before He said it.
How about my words? Do I purify my thoughts and words? Sometimes I really pray about the best way to communicate with others, so my words would build up and not tear down. This is a area of growth for me.
Lord, would you by the abiding presence of Your Spirit remind me to consider, and reconsider the words I say. let my words bring about Your purposes.
