Silence and Spiritual Walking

Walking with Jesus…

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

A thought…
In today’s devotion we are told to ‘ask the Lord to help you guard our tongue and avoid the trap of foolishness that masquerades as too many words without wisdom’. For far to long I’ve only thought of this when comes to communicating with others, not so much God. DID I have it wrong! I (we) need to fear the Lord God in a good way, but still fear Him. For He will hold us accountable for what we say and promise Him.

A verse…

Much dreaming and many words are meaningless. Therefore fear God.
Ecclesiastes 5:7

A reading and devotion…

Silence and Spiritual Walking: Many Words are Foolish

Today in the Word—june/devotions/15/

Ecclesiastes 5:1-7 NLT
[1] As you enter the house of God, keep You your ears open and your mouth shut. It is evil to make mindless offerings to God. [2] Don’t make rash promises, and don’t be hasty in bringing matters before God. After all, God is in heaven, and you are here on earth. So let your words be few. [3] Too much activity gives you restless dreams; too many words make you a fool. [4] When you make a promise to God, don’t delay in following through, for God takes no pleasure in fools. Keep all the promises you make to him. [5] It is better to say nothing than to make a promise and not keep it. [6] Don’t let your mouth make you sin. And don’t defend yourself by telling the Temple messenger that the promise you made was a mistake. That would make God angry, and he might wipe out everything you have achieved. [7] Talk is cheap, like daydreams and other useless activities. Fear God instead.

To fear the Lord, then, is to avoid the trap of many words and to exercise self-discipline of the tongue (v. 7). The word meaningless connects this point with the main theme of Ecclesiastes. Language is created by God; therefore, words have significance, meaning, and power and should be handled with caution and reverence.

A prayer…
O God, Abba Father, Lord Jesus head my prayer. Let me be quick to forgive and slow to speak before You and those You place before.

A song…
