Speak His Word

Then the LORD told me: Stop talking like a fool!
If you turn back to me and speak my message,
I will let you be my prophet once again.

(Jeremiah 15:19 CEV)

These are some very strong words, but God had to scold His prophet, who was beginning to complain and talk like a fool during his hardships. Sadly, we’re often guilty of the same thing when we’re discouraged or going through a difficult time. When Job was suffering badly, his wife’s solution was to curse God and die, but Job said to her, “Don’t talk like a fool! If we accept blessings from God, we must accept trouble as well” (Job 2:10). Job answered his wife’s foolish words by speaking God’s Word. Jeremiah, too, was told to repent and speak God’s message again. Speaking God’s Word, especially when we’re going through hard times, will help us stand firm and avoid talking like a fool.

To avoid foolish talk, speak God’s Word.
