“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life” (Jo 6:63).
The Lord Jesus attributed the power and effect of His words to the life-giving work of the Holy Spirit. He set us an awesome example. In particular, He modelled how believers’ tongues can always make a lasting difference for God’s Kingdom. He also revealed a remarkable principle: All Our Natural Talk is Useless! We must engage our tongues into the supernatural. The only way we can truly bless the world is to allow the Spirit to control and empower our speech. Otherwise, our words will remain futile. Beloved, conscientious disciples don’t just talk anyhow. Declare with me: My days of futile chatter are over! Like our Father, our words shall not return to us void but shall always accomplish His will (Isa 55:11). Let the Holy Spirit empower and inspire your speech so much that you create life, healing, blessing, favour, joy, peace and goodwill everywhere you go. Hallelujah!
