Be A Woman With Soft Words
In this edition, I want you to choose who will be your example, whether you are going to be like Job’s wife or like Manoah’s wife. You are never forced in the kingdom to do anything because man has free will, but if you are wise, you will choose the will of God. Joshua told the Israelites “Choose you this day who ye will serve…but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15.
In the book of Job 2, you can see how Job’s predicament started. I want you to know that the devil cannot just do what he likes with you, even in the old testament, the devil could not snuff life out of Job’s body. The devil in his conversation with God said, if you touch his body, he will curse You and God said, skin for skin, but don’t touch his life. How much more when the blood of Jesus is speaking for you. Don’t let the devil terrorize you that you will have a negative outcome; your life is not in the devil’s hand. The word of the Lord has gone forth; you are not prey to the enemies’ teeth: say it always, I AM NOT PREY! You are not prey! Your family is not prey! Know who you are in the word of God and stand with that.
Look at what Job’s wife came up with, no understanding of spiritual operations or spiritual warfare; she was a rosy wife who smiles only when the husband drops money for her.
In verse 9 the woman said “Dost thou still retain thine integrity? Curse God and die“. Who do you think was talking through that woman? And Job answered her in verse 10 “But he said unto her, thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh…” I want to ask you today – Are you a wise or a foolish woman?
“A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.” Proverbs 15: 1.
A rude answer will only stir up anger. I want to ask you; what kind of words are you speaking at home? What kind of words comes out of your mouth to your children, to your husband in an unpleasant situation? It was Job that was sick with boil all over his body, this was someone that when the husband was shaving, she will say, “You have not touched me this morning”, but now with boil all over his body, she said, “Are you still there? You still believe this your God and maintain your integrity.” She would say there is one ‘Baba’ somewhere, once he gives you soap you will be clean. The woman will say, “Curse God and die”.
I want to ask you today, what sort of words do you say in moments of a little crisis in the house? Do you speak wrongly in the moment of a brief folly of your children? Once the devil wants to come to your home, are you the one the devil will find an inroad through? Make up your mind that if the devil wants to come to the church, and your family, he will not find an inroad through you; if the devil wants to come anywhere at any time, he will not find an inroad through me. Look at Judas, the devil found an inroad through him, he thought when they come to arrest Jesus, Jesus will disappear like He usually does, and he will then go with the money and tell them it was their fault that they couldn’t catch Him.
Every time demonic things are happening, you should know there is a demonic pressure, and know that the pressure is a pressure in the spirit that one person will be subject to it. Sickness is a demonic pressure for death, and you should take authority over it.
What kind of words come out of your mouth at the moment of sickness and unpleasant situations? You must not just have a physical understanding but spiritual understanding also. The understanding you have with the situations that face you as a couple, as a family will determine what you will do and say. What you say will determine what you open your life to, either the devil’s opportunity or God’s opportunity to create His things in your life, not what you say in church or on your church WhatsApp page to your Pastor. It is obvious that Job’s wife had no understanding of the spiritual operation and divine provision. What kind of words do you say in your home when situations are not the way they ought to be? I pray for you for a baptism of the spirit of understanding as of the order of Isaiah 11:2, you will have an understanding of spiritual things, of demonic pressure, of human things in Jesus name!
You must be a woman of godly words. Fill yourself with the Holy Spirit and speak good words. In Proverbs 31:26, “She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness“. That is a virtuous woman. Don’t forget this woman is well put together, she knows many things, she’s beautiful, she’s economically great, she doesn’t talk to her husband or children anyhow, she opens her mouth with wisdom. The wisdom of wisdom will work for you always as you make necessary adjustments in Jesus name. Grace to speak the right words to your children and husband. That is the work of a woman; you are anointed to bring the soft word.
Let me remind you of one of the daughters in the house that was always having a quarrel with her husband and I was praying on her matter and the Lord said to tell her, “If she does not quarrel, there will be no quarrel.”
Those days, mothers praise their children through their ancestral background and eulogize their children, but now we have anointed mothers, so we have anointed vocabulary in our mouth. Speak over them, “James, you are the blessed of the Lord, it is well with you” and speak over your husband, “He is one that fears the Lord”
Don’t forget when anything negative is coming, it is demonic pressure, never speak negative words or give the devil the opportunity to speak wrongly, let the law of the words of kindness take you over.
God bless you; it is well with you.
