Speak Life - Tuesday, November 21st 2017

Job 2:9

Then his wife said to him, "Do you still hold fast to your integrity? Curse God and die!"

We often think, well, Satan left Job's wife alive because she was carnal. Could be. It's interesting we are not told where she is in her faith before this statement. Maybe she was walking with the Lord before losing her wealth, her house and grounds, her children and is now watching her husband in pain. And maybe in just giving in, she said "curse God and die, I give up Job."

This can happen to any of us. We all go through hard times and it's easy to speak poorly during those times. Be watchful of anyone speaking contrary to the Word, or speaking negatively in hard times. Be the person who speaks life, who speaks the truth, and speaks love. Allow God to use you to bring healing to others who are hurting and to empower you to be a witness for His glory even while you are going through hard times.

Life Lesson: The beauty and strength of a marriage, partnership or friendship is that often when one is weak, the other is strong.

Thank You for empowering us through Your Spirit to speak life and blessing even during hard times. Help us to be loving when someone else is hurting, and help us to speak wisely when we are hurting. We lift up to You all those in our life going through difficult situations, and ask You to use us to be a blessing in all of our relationships. In Jesus' name, amen.
