Flawless Words

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- June 3, 2012

And the words of the LORD are flawless, like silver refined in a furnace of clay, purified seven times. Psalm 12:6

The words of the Lord are flawless. There is no dross in Christ’s conversation. Men may lie, but He is the truth. Men may deceive, but Jesus enlightens. Men may flatter, but the Lord edifies. Men may boast, but Jesus gives the glory to God. Words can be wonderful or terrible depending on their source. The words of the Lord are rooted in righteousness. There is no doubt when Deity makes a declaration of truth. What comes forth from the Lord’s lips is 100% pure motive. You can trust what God says because He speaks without guile or guilt. His words are not vain but very appropriate and applicable. The words of heaven make earth better. The words of the Lord have stood the test of time. They have been tried by fire, and have come forth faithful.

Holy Scripture has not been without criticism. The Bible has been stripped of its miracles and added to by self-appointed prophets, even though Jesus warned there are severe consequences for adding to His word (Revelation 22:18). Besides, God’s Word does not need help. His words have survived the ravishes of faithless liberalism and loveless legalism. His Word has outlasted the cloak of the church within an ancient translation for none but the “holy” to read, let alone understand. The Lord’s words have been run through the fires of falsehood, faithlessness, fear, forgetfulness, and foreign gods. The Bible has been burned, belittled, and ignored. Nonetheless, it still flourishes. The Holy Scripture is translated into more languages today than ever in the history of mankind. It has stood the test of time.

So take the Lord’s flawless word by faith. Read them daily and apply them moment-by-moment. Study them and struggle with them. Seek to understand the context of the Bible and why God chose to speak specific infallible words through fallible followers. The Holy Spirit is the author of the Holy Scriptures (2 Peter 1:21). The pen of men merely moved under the instruction of divine inspiration. So we have a stewardship of truth. The Bible is our handbook for holiness and happiness. We steward it well when we honor it above our own wishful thinking. The words of the Lord are extremely valuable and not to be taken for granted. Therefore, listen to the Lord often and listen expectantly.

We honor and value His words when we take them to heart. We do not listen to the Lord to fulfill an obligation. We listen for instructions to be obeyed. We listen for encouragement. We listen for rebuke. We listen to the Lord’s flawless words because we know He loves us. We have infinite access to Wisdom. The clarity, cut, and color of Christ’s words are flawless and invaluable. They are matchless compared to man’s meager trinkets. We are wise when we make our words the words of Christ. Children speak the words of their parents. We mouth the language of our Lord. Our words grow in value as we speak His priceless promises. Then we have something to say.

    the king james says ‘the words of the Lord are pure’ so why do the ‘new versions’ of the bible change the words

    Thank you, Brother Boyd.
    Most of all, we “listen” to God’s Word so that we may KNOW Him. For to know Him is life eternal, and He Himself–and never any fruit we may bear for Him–is our exceeding great reward.
    In His Love, Starla

    I’m the business owner of JustCBD brand (justcbdstore.com) and I am currently trying to expand my wholesale side of company. It would be great if anybody at targetdomain can help me 🙂 I thought that the very best way to accomplish this would be to talk to vape companies and cbd stores. I was hoping if someone could recommend a reliable site where I can purchase CBD Shops Business Contact Details I am already considering creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Unsure which one would be the most ideal selection and would appreciate any advice on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
