Actions

Action Word on Red Round Button Be ProactiveI’ve heard it said, “actions speak louder than words”. I do believe that to be true. I’ve also heard it said that “what you do speaks so loudly, I can’t hear what you’re saying”. The Lord wants our words and actions to be in harmony and be a blessing to others. He wants our words and actions toward Him to be full of integrity and honesty. Check this out…

 8 God is the one who made the star groups Pleiades and Orion;

    he changes darkness into the morning light,

    and the day into dark night.

He calls for the waters of the sea

    to pour out on the earth.

    The Lord is his name.
21 The Lord says, “I hate and reject your feasts;

    I cannot stand your religious meetings.
22 If you offer me burnt offerings and grain offerings,

    I won’t accept them.

You bring your best fellowship offerings of fattened cattle,

    but I will ignore them.
23 Take the noise of your songs away from me!

    I won’t listen to the music of your harps.
24 But let justice flow like a river,

    and let goodness flow like a never-ending stream. (Amos 5:8;21-24 NCV)

One of my favorite songs from ThEnvoy is “The Ones That Speak”. “When silence is golden and talk is cheap, the actions we take are the ones that speak” (ThEnvoy.com)

The Lord does not delight in our empty words. He wants our words, our actions – our heart to be in concert with Him. I do believe that I need to be consistent in my journey – not judgmental of others journey, but deeply focused on my journey. I’m certainly not perfect, but I’m thankful that the Lord’s grace and mercy are plentiful and flowing over me every day.  I want my actions today to reflect what I believe about the Lord.

Pressing On!
