Haste makes waste: Speak the Word of God instead

For I said in my haste,
“I am cut off from before Your eyes”;
Nevertheless You heard the voice of my supplications
When I cried out to You.

~ Psalm 31:22

Without the Word of God deeply rooted in a heart, one can get their eyes on the natural, on what is seen, instead of God and the truth of His “yes and amen” promises.

The result? Much time and energy wasted doubting God, possibly even affecting one’s health with unnecessary stress. Maybe even lots of words spoken that exalt themselves against His Word causing self-sabotage, running about trying to solve what one cannot in their own strength, and taking on things that only add to their trouble. This is not His will for His children.

I’ve spoken with many precious sisters in Christ who spend a significant amount of time fretting, fearing, and speaking in haste, spewing death and destruction over their circumstances with their mouths and with that empowering and agreeing with the works of the devil in their lives. They are unable to see how much they magnify the evil one over God, His Word, and power.

Truth: “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you,” (Matthew 17:20).

One can only counsel someone so much. Ultimately, our relationship with God, His Word, and living a life led by the Spirit is our responsibility.

Job also spoke much in haste. Why? Because in his time (before Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, etc.), he had very little revelation of God and His character.

Then, nearing the end of the book of Job, the Lord says to him, “Who is this who darkens counsel by words WITHOUT knowledge?” (Job 38:2) Yet, many believers quote much of what Job spoke in haste according to God’s standards and create entire incorrect doctrines out of it.

In Job 42:3, Job agreed with the Lord and said, “You asked, ‘Who is this who hides counsel without knowledge?’ Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand.”

There’s no need for any new covenant child of God in Christ to speak in haste. No, with the full cousnel of God available to us, we can boldly speak words of victory and faith, knowing that we know His Word is true and cannot fail those who trust in them.

Thank You, Lord Jesus, for becoming our Mediator of a new covenant with new and better promises!

The Secret Place with God

For in the time of trouble
He shall hide me in His pavilion;
In the secret place of His tabernacle
He shall hide me;
He shall set me high upon a rock.

~ Psalm 27:5

We may see trouble all around. But God! When we trust in the Lord and His Word, He SHALL hide us in His secret place.

Oh, how great is Your goodness,
Which You have laid up for those who fear You,
Which You have prepared for those who trust in You
In the presence of the sons of men!
You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence
From the plots of man;
You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion
From the strife of tongues.

~ Psalm 31:19-20

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”

~ Psalm 91:1-2

The Word teaches us how we may dwell in His secret place: by trusting in Him completely. By living from faith to faith in His Word and magnifying Him and His Word alone as our secret place, refuge, fortress, and hiding place.

We must NEVER empower and magnify the works of the devil around us as we see so many believers doing today who use their mouths to prophecy his destructions more than God’s Might and Power, more than the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God.

What does God say about what many of His children do in ignorance?

A man’s stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth [his words];
From the produce of his lips
[words] he shall be filled.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue [words],
And those who love it will eat its fruit.

~ Proverbs 18:20-21

and

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.

~ Hosea 4:6

We’ve been warned by our good Father regarding the importance of our words. Therefore, we must speak the life and power of His Word in every circumstance and magnify His greatness and power, His goodness, mercy, and love, including trusting in His power and ability to hide us in His secret place in times of trouble.

And because His Word is a weapon against the powers of darkness (Eph. 6), when we speak it instead of empowering the devil’s evils with our mouths, we wield the Word against to works of the devil to destroy them.

We can magnify Him as our hiding place and shield too!

You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah ~ Psalm 32:7

You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your Word. ~ Psalm 119:114

Father, thank You that Your Word is ONLY true and is where we can place all our faith, hope and trust. We can possess Your promises by our faith and trust in You. Hallelujah!
