Empty Words


Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.—Ephesians 5:6

We have all been affected by empty words. Words that are spoken and left unattended, which turn into unkept promises. And when someone makes a covenant with their mouth, we take it to heart that the person making that promise will follow through with the needed action. When the actions do not result, it leaves a covenant of words broken and empty. But these empty words affect a relationship because of the hope we put in the person who spoke the words. Note this: that every verbal promise comes with a relational guarantee. Also, God takes concern with empty words. His concern is that they will deceive his children. But God makes his own promise—not with empty words, that wrath comes upon the sons of disobedience.

ASK THIS: What promise have you made?

DO THIS: Act on your every promise by making that your first task today.

PRAY THIS: God, thanks for guaranteeing my salvation and being a God who follows through on your word. I stake my life and eternity on it. And I trust in your faith and ancient words.
