The Power of Words

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Training in righteousness

YHVH gave us the ability to communicate through spoken words. These words have much power. We can hurt with our words and we can edify. Our words create our lives, in the same way YHVH created all He did, by speaking it forth. YHVH created everything with words, He spoke and it was so. We were also created this way, in YHVH’s image, and He gave us the power to use words to create our reality on earth.

Rebuking your brother - in love or not

We all know that we need to love our brother. We also know that we need to keep an eye on ourselves and our brother. Yet, it is not always easy to decide what to do when your brother does something you feel is not right. But what to do then?

Can words be measured? Can words be weighed?
What is the measure of my words?

Job 31:6
6 Let Him weigh me with accurate scales, And let יהוה know my integrity.

What does weighing and scales have to do with words or with integrity? Picture an old scale, maybe an ancient scale that uses weights for measurement. Now let us say Abba YHVH’s instructions are the weights against which our words are weighed. Put the Word of YHVH into the one weighing pan and your words in the other. How do your words measure against His Word? Would you not like your words to be in perfect balance with YHVH’s. Is that at all possible?
