Perfect Peace… Rodna Epley

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Rodna Epley with tags , , , , , on February 2, 2021 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.

John 14:27 Peace I leave you, My peace I give you; not as the world gives, do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, nor fearful.

Perfect peace is probably the strongest indicator given to us by the Father that we are operating in His glory at any given moment, but another sure indicator are the words that we consistently speak. There can be many evidences of His glory manifesting in our lives, but our words are a huge one! They are either a dead give-away of walking in the old nature, or a living give-away of walking in the new nature. On a very simple level is optimism verses pessimism, positivity verses negativity. A person speaking positively doesn’t mean that he is in Christ, but it is an indicator on a very low level. What words are said are even more important and more of indicator.

A Christian who speaks negatively at length is still operating out of the old nature. What he says may be true, but they aren’t words to restore. Reconciling someone to the Father (and I’m not just talking about salvation) must bring that person all the way up to where Christ is at the Father’s right hand.

It can’t stop and cry forever at the cross, and it can’t condemn others with words that continually remind them they messed up or got it wrong. While the cross is one of the steps or way-points, and a very important one, even a daily one, it must be coupled with the rising from the dead to new life, and then ascending to the right hand of the Father where we overcome. That happens now as we live. Not knowing this causes people to live defeated lives and in condemnation when we don’t have to. We must go full circle to the Father to overcome anything. Jesus said,

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.” (John 14:12)

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6)

“I came forth from the Father and have come into the world. Again, I leave the world and go to the Father.” (John 16:28)

Our Daily Bread… Featuring Paul Beverly

We can either speak praise, speak poison, or don’t speak at all. It may not always be easy but speaking poison should never be an option. If it isn’t good or uplifting, then we should keep our mouths shut. Speaking poison will only cause strife & hurt. Speaking praise into others will give them courage & hope. Choose carefully.

Be quicker to praise someone or reward them than you are to complain or put them down. They will respond a lot better to positivity. If you’re constantly negative, people will distance themselves. Positivity attracts others. Give good works in others their due.

Proverbs 3:27 Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.

Proverbs 12:18 There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.

Proverbs 15:1 A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

Proverbs 21:23 Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble.

Have a week full of praise my friends!!!

Kind words can change a person’s day & whole outlook. Point out the good you see in others. They deserve to feel special, because they are.

Be careful of what & how you speak to others. Your words have the power to encourage & build others up, or your words can leave scars that may never heal. Think before you speak. Remember what your momma use to say, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.

Proverbs 13:3 Those who guard their lips preserve their lives, but those that speak rashly will come to ruin.

Proverbs 12:18 The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.

Proverbs 16:24 Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul & health to the body.

Proverbs 25:11 A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.

Have a kind and healing Monday my friends!!!

Why do we believe the words of those that hurt us, but can’t see what those that love us see in ourselves?

If you think those that are hurting you love you, you need to understand that they don’t know how to love. That’s not love or truth.  So many lack confidence in themselves because they only hear about the negative that some may see.

Focus on the good in others & build them up. Believe those that are building you up & try to see just a portion of what they see. Praise the positive you see in them. Give them confidence. Confidence is appealing.

Be confident in yourself…

Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupt talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those that hear.

Have a grace giving week my friends!!!
