A father gathers his children in his arms and whispers to her that she is beautiful and precious and to his son that he’s proud of him. A wife tells her husband she is glad he is the head of their household. A teacher affirms her students when they do well. Words are powerful. They bring life. Of course, there is the other side as well – they can destroy people mentally and emotionally. But let’s focus on the positive. Speaking truth in love brings life, joy, and hope. This is what we find every time we read God’s word, for His words are perfect, refreshing the soul. Do you need some refreshment today? Turn to God’s word and read the truths that He wants to tell you: you are loved (John 3:16), you are His child (Galatians 3:26), you are chosen (1 Peter 2:10), and you are redeemed (1 Peter 1:18).
Psalms 19:7-10 NIV
The law of the LORD is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes. The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. The decrees of the LORD are firm, and all of them are righteous. They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb.
