When Words are Too Much

Updated: 6 days ago

Sometimes my words are just too many, not that God won't listen, but I don't need to hear my words again. I don't need to rehash my anxiety or my unbelief. I need to take them captive to the Truth. I need to wrestle them to the feet of Jesus and then listen for what He says over them.

The wise in heart will receive commandments, but a babbling fool will come to ruin. Proverbs 10:8

I don't want to be a babbling fool. I can have so much going on in my brain that I feel like it needs to spill out and God is a safe place for that, but He has more than that for us. I can talk so much to God that I don't realize I haven't stopped to hear from God.

I am carrying these words from the Message translation of this verse with me this week.

A wise heart takes orders, an empty head will come unglued.

I can easily come unglued when I forget that the decisions aren't all on me. I have a superior. He has the battle plan and I don't have to figure it all out. I just need my orders. I can rest in His ability to get me safely home.

Steal this prayer this week. I've been praying it and will continue because it's helping me.

Father, thank you that my thoughts are safe with you, but remind me to listen more than I babble. Let my input be more than my output. Help me be wise enough to listen and receive your direction. In Jesus' name, Amen.
