“The one with a wise heart is called “discerning,” and speaking sweetly to others makes your teaching even more convincing. Wisdom is a deep well of understanding opened up within you as a fountain of life for others, but it’s senseless to try to instruct a fool. Winsome words pour from a heart of wisdom, adding value to all you teach. Nothing is more appealing than speaking beautiful, life-giving words. For they release sweetness to our souls and inner healing to our spirits.” Proverbs 16:21-24 TPT
During morning prayer I begin to see honey! How cool, right?! I saw honey flowing everywhere in the Spirit, which gave me a desire to search the scriptures to find the message Papa was speaking to me. After doing a quick google search, I found six scriptures with the word honey. Okay six scriptures, that’s not bad at all. I scrolled through the scriptures reading and asking Holy Spirit to highlight to me the one He was leading me to. I then proceeded to get ready for my day.
During the early afternoon, while searching for stock photos I begin to see (in the Spirit) an image of a person with honey on their lips, not sugar, but honey. I then noticed a flash across my computer screen. It was a daily devotional which read, “Kind words are like honey.” One of the scriptures within the devotional is Proverbs 16:24 which leaped out at me!
A little time passes and I continue to check my emails. I opened the email and it was a book an author asked me to take a look at. You’re not gonna believe this… Proverbs 16:24 jumped right out at me within the pages of this manuscript! Hmmm… I think Abba is trying to tell me something.
Papa is so cool! I thank God for His beautiful, SWEET reminders. Reminding me that kind words are like honey-sweet to the soul and healthy for the body! (Proverbs 16:24 NLT) I love how He divinely weaved this scripture into my day. May those of us who preach, teach, write, and give wise counsel be reminded of this sweet reminder in Proverbs 16:24.
Papa, we pray that we will be one with a wise heart who is called discerning. May we speak sweetly to others making your teaching even more convincing. May the deep well of wisdom open up within us as a fountain of life for others. May we be one who will speak forth your beautiful, life-giving words, words that release sweetness to the soul, and inner healing to the spirit.
