Choice Words

By Chris Baxter

Words. Choice words.

Words can hurt, words can heal.

Words can tear down, words can build up.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue. Pr. 18:21


In heated relational situations, is my tongue like a machete that swings with vast and defining blows? Or is it like a surgeon’s scalpel, that makes a small and accurate incision for the purpose of healing and hope?

Words. Choice words.

Words can destroy, words can restore.

Words can confuse, words can infuse.

Words can deform, words can transform.

“Lord, help me with my words. Make my words, Your words. May I pause and pray and hear Your voice telling me what to say, and what not to say. Set a guard over my mouth, Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips (Ps 141:3). I only want to speak words that heal, build up, infuse, create, and transform.

Words. Yes, O God, I want to speak…

Your choice words.”

My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Hosea 4:11

Dear Lord, The more we know you the stronger we become in you. Give us a heart's desire to read your word so that you can enlighten us into all of who you are as we walk out our days. For your word brings LIFE. Help us to know it, believe it, and live by it. Amen.
