The "HUSH" Anointing

Whether we want to admit it or not, as women of God, we have a habit of talking a bit too much. While it's difficult to remain silent until God gives the instruction to speak, this is something we must really think about and practice.

Proverbs 17:28
Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.

Wow! Many times, we feel disrespected. We feel that people don't recognize our anointings or respect our positions in ministry. Well, I believe the ENTIRE word of God is true. I can speak from experience and say that oftentimes, this disrespect stems from being too "common."

By no means am I implying that we are to be haughty or prideful because we are called. However, we are accountable - to God first, then to men. As instruments of God (especially those of us who are prophets), we must remember that the enemy will use our mouths against us. Why? Blessings and cursing should not flow from the same fountain. Our words often negate the power God has placed in our mouths. Death and life are in the power of the tongue.

When we talk too much, people lose respect. It's a natural reaction. When we run our mouths too much in the world, the people are not as attentive when truth comes across. Our integrity rests on our words and our actions. Amen?

Let's be careful and wise about the words we speak, realizing that EVERY IDLE WORD SHALL BE JUDGED according to the word of God. We must also realize that a good ambassador is a trusted servant. As our words become fewer, they will also grow to be more impactful and less prone to error.
