“And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers” – Luke 2:47
Our Savior Jesus Christ always knew what to say in any situation or occasion. He knew the right words to say to the weary, the broken-hearted, and those who were heavy laden with sin. He was distinguished from all others with intelligence and eloquence to speak “an in season word”.
The words He spoke were peaceful, yet powerful and persuasive. They were with so much intelligence and eloquence that the very words He spoke were astonishing to the ears of those who heard Him. In fact, His words are the very words of which we continue to turn to in times of difficult and pressing circumstances.
Right words aim to heal, encourage, uplift and give life to those who are lost, troubled, depressed or discouraged. Not to hurt, dishearten, bully or break down a person’s confidence.
Rather than responding with vindictive and quarrelsome words, the Holy Spirit can teach us how to properly respond with suitable and timely words, that are peaceful, yet powerful and persuasive, that it will confound the face of those who hope to bring you down to their level of immaturity.
Learn to speak peaceful, yet powerful and persuasive words in any situation under the leading of the Holy Spirit that could end in a peaceful solution, and glorify the Father in Heaven.
