Neal’s Lit Word

Title: “Bubbling Brook”

Scripture: Proverbs 18:4

The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters;
The fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.

Observation: What is God saying to me?

Some people dive so deep with their mouths they confuse themselves.

Wisdom isn’t found in a man of too many words. Wisdom is simple and clear like a beautiful creek. Deep waters are dark. When we open the floodgate of our mouths nothing is clear. Simplicity of speech is wisdom.
Wisdom will rise to the surface, you don’t have to dive deep to look for it.

Application: What will I do about it?

Pause and ask the Holy Spirit for His wisdom before opening your mouth with too many words. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Weigh your words. Stand in AWE of the Lord and let your words be few.


Holy Spirit, my greatest desire is to be in relationship with you and to be used by You. I owe You my life. Allow me the grace (unconditional love), mercy (not getting what I deserve) and wisdom (knowledge in action) to stay attached to your side. Be the guide for my mouth, which also leads my life. Cause my words to direct this ship to Your destinations for me and those I am leading to follow You. Amen!

I Am Grateful For… the “Bubbling Brook”
