“Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such
a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment,
so that it will give grace to those who hear.” (Eph.4:29, NASB)
May we say less and less: “What I meant to say was . . . “. May the Lord help our thought processes so that we communicate clearly what we intended to communicate. May He improve the way that we put our thoughts together so that we might be certain we have connected with the other person or persons; and know that they have walked away with an understanding that enables all parties to arrive at the desired goal.
2 That people may know skillful and godly Wisdom and instruction, discern and comprehend the words of understanding and insight,
3 Receive instruction in wise dealing and the discipline of wise thoughtfulness, righteousness, justice, and integrity… (Prov.1:2-3, Amp)

Enablements That Communicate
As we go into the future, Holy Spirit will impart to us enablements that communicate in language that reaches people where they are. In one meeting I spoke of the greatness of God and the many dimensions in the universe. Afterward, a scientist who had helped develop the Apollo rocket walked up and engaged me in conversation about dimensions. I ended up ministering to him about his purpose and counseling him concerning his marriage. On several occasions, people working in the government of our nation have contacted Kathy for help interpreting their dreams and she was able to prophesy to them concerning God’s purposes in their future. In a meeting, I spoke of righteous legislation for our nation. A man who is running for the U. S. Senate was in that meeting. One of his aides contacted me and told me that the gentleman wept openly in the meeting because of what the Lord spoke to him concerning legislation for our nation. In the play Julius Ceasar Mark Antony cries out, “Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears.” I believe that today our Lord’s cry is, “Sons, daughters, believers, lend me your capacities to communicate.” Believers have not yet seen everything our Lord will do to us and through us for His Kingdom purposes but…. we are available.
