Our Weak Words

April 25, 2011 Donna New

owNow our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit, and in much assurance; 1 Thessalonians 1:5

When I pray sometimes it seems like sleepy words. When I speak words of encouragement sometimes they come from a weary, empty heart. When I speak words of firm knowledge, they actually come from an unsure, timid person. 

I don’t have a charismatic personality or a confident, forceful demeanor. I didn’t come made with music or art talent inherent in me.

But, thank the Lord He gives power to sleepy words. What would we do with each other if He didn’t work through us when we were weary and empty? I’m so grateful the words are firm when I may not be.

What gives our words power? Who is the authority behind our simple prayers and words of faith?

There is a God who made friends with a humble man on earth. This man and this God spoke to each other face to face, intimately. The remarkable thing about this is that this God caused mountains to quake and smoke to pour forth when others tried to speak with Him. but for some reason God and His friend Moses were intimate friends.

We can have that relationship with God. He will hear our every word and defend what we speak in faith, however timidly or wearily, with the power that shook mountains and poured forth smoke. He even defends our holy words with the power that took our Savior from the depths of hell and defeated death not just for Himself but for the world.
