Speak Excellent Things by Joyce Meyer - posted May 20, Friday
Hear, for I will speak excellent and princely things; and the opening of my lips shall be for right things. —Proverbs 8:6
In this Scripture, Solomon made a decision about how he would talk, and we should do the same thing. Just as we can direct our thoughts, we can also direct our words with God’s help. We should choose to speak excellent things.
Our words affect us and the people around us. They also affect what God is able to do for us. You cannot have a negative mouth and a positive life. In 1 Peter 3:10, the apostle Peter teaches us that if we want to enjoy life and see good days—even in the midst of trials—we must keep our tongues free from evil. What kind of life do you want? Do you want an excellent life? If so, then you must be excellent in your choice of words. Change your words, and you will change your life!
Power Thought: I choose to speak of worthy, important, noble, and excellent things.
