Wednesday’s Word – Word

Word - the Word of the Week - Wednesday's Word

The word of this week is Word – God’s Word.

 God has impressed on me many times this week
that it is His Word that I am to be listening to. Tweet this.

We are bombarded by words every day – man’s words. They can change us, pull us away from God, hurt us, bring us into fights, sadness, despair. They can change us in good ways as well – but words that build up come from God.

Are you building others up? Or are you tearing them down?

“One word from God has the potential of an open-ended experience with God” (Experiencing God, Henry Blackaby). Tweet this.

Take the time and read God’s Word. His Words have the power to change you.

“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12, NIV).

KLove played this song on the way home from my Bible study and it says so much about why I write about the Word of God.

Words by Hawk Nelson

You can see all the lyrics on this website:  Words.

Here is a sample

Words can build you up
Words can break you down
Start a fire in your heart
Or put it out

Let my words be life
Let my words be truth
I don’t want to say a word
Unless it points the world back to You



  1. Oh how I allowed my words to break one of my precious children’s hearts this week! That is THE WORST! No amount of apology and forgiveness can truly erase the damage of our words. This was a great post and wonderful reminder, thank you!

  2. I try to teach my children that words have power and that they should choose them carefully. I try to live this and choose building words not destructive words with all not just them. I, of course, at times fall short and I appreciate the reminder to use Godly words.

    1. Traci,
      That is great. Teaching the power of words. I remember when the kids heard swear words for the first time. I told that intelligent people don’t need to swear because they have enough good words to express themselves clearly. They learned very well.
      And yes destructive words – even the tone of voice can be so hurtful.
      Falling short – always but getting reminded – and getting better.
      Thanks for commenting.

  3. Thanks Janis. God’s Word is so powerful, alive, and full of light. Thanks so much for reminding me of how much I need Him and His Word every day.

I love to connect with you.
