“One who loves a pure heart and who speaks with grace will have the King for a friend” (PV 22:11)
To have a pure heart it means to have a heart like Jesus! To speak with grace it means to speak like Jesus! It means to speak the Word of God with anointing and power. I am not saying you must preach to everybody. Even a whisper of a counsel, if you speak it with grace it will change the heart of the listener. To speak with grace it means to have a heart and a tongue filled with the Holy Spirit. You shall speak the right word at the right time with the right tone. The devil will hate you because of your grace words. God will bless you because of the same words. You shall speak wisdom, gentleness, kindness, joy, peace, strength, comfort, encouragement and loving rebuke. You shall ‘minister grace’. You shall direct the hearer to Christ, to the Cross! You shall speak good holy words that fit the need! Jesus will be your friend. People in need shall listen to you and see Christ in you. Your life, words and actions, shall glorify God!
This evening Jesus says to me: “My dove, in the clefts of the rock, in the crevices of the cliff, let me see your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely” (SS2:14). Thank You Savior, Lord, Healer, Lover and Friend! Receive all of Your glory!
