Your words are meant for creating and accomplishing, not for venting and spewing

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts. “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

(Isaiah 55:8-11 NKJV)

“And I tell you this, you must give an account on judgment day for every idle word you speak. The words you say will either acquit you or condemn you.”

(Matthew 12:36-37 NLT)

In this passage God reveals His ways. When speaking about His superior ways He is referring to how He uses His words. He says that the words that come from His mouth are like seed that bring life and always produce. His words always accomplish the purpose in which they were released. What is the Bible saying here? God does not talk just to talk. God doesn't vent and word vomit. He doesn't waste words. Every Word that He releases is given as an assignment. This is very counter to the current culture. We live in a day and age with the rise of social media where everybody speaks the first thing that comes to their mind. We feel it, we think it, we say it. Have you ever had someone tell you, “just let it out?” Don't do that! I understand that you may feel a plethora of emotions but instead of “just letting it out” don't let it in to begin with. Whatever you let out will be the reality that you live in. Again, every word that God speaks is released with a job. This is not only His for himself, this is His way for us. Is that not what Jesus meant in Mark 11 when He said, “I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” The unique ability to create and release Words was given to man to create and accomplish, not waste, vent, and spew. In fact, Jesus said we will give an account for every idle word we speak on judgment day. The word idle in the Greek means: inactive, unemployed, lazy, useless, barren, and slow. This means we will account for every word that comes out of our mouths that we did not give it a job to do. Let's be like God and begin to use our words as servants to create and accomplish.
