The Word

The Word

Acts 14:18

“Even with these words, they had difficulty keeping the crowd from sacrificing to them.

Sometimes words are just not enough.

Words cannot paint the picture of a beautiful sunset or the starry sky on a clear night.

Words do not come from the mouth of the wonder of parents holding their new born baby.

Words are not needed in the centre of the gaze of two lovers.

Word are not enough when the doctor gives the all clear.

Sometimes words are just not enough.

Yesterday preachers will have preached their best words.

But today even those powerful words do not stop the day from being difficult.

Words are powerful. We are told they have power for life and for death.

Sometimes words are not enough. Sometimes the circumstance of life is beyond the power of any word. Words will not overpower it. Words will not make any change to it.

Sometimes circumstances win and no amount of name it and claim it will change it.

It is then that you realise all you have and the most important thing you have in this life is actually not words but the privilege of following and submitting to The Word.
