Peace is Deaf & Dumb
But I, like a deaf man, hear not; and I am like a dumb man who opens not his mouth. Psalm 38:13 (AMP)
There is one thing that will help you to have the peace of God and that is to not give place to what is said about you. Yes, that’s right. Pay no attention to what others say when others are seeking your hurt. Our verse for today tells us to be like a deaf man who cannot hear, shama’. We are to refuse to hearken to, or obey what is being said. We won’t repeat it and so will not give it access into our life.
Yes, I have become like a man who hears not, in whose mouth are no arguments or replies. Psalm 38:14.
Not only are we deaf to what is said but we are dumb regarding it. The word, dumb, pathach, carries the idea of engraving what was said by repeating it. We open ourselves up to the destruction that the words spoken against us were designed to inflict. In other words: Whose report will you believe and, therefore, speak?
Yet we have the same spirit of faith as he had who wrote, I have believed, and therefore have I spoken. We too believe, and therefore we speak, 2 Corinthians 4:13 (AMP)
We must not give ear to anything that is contrary to the Word of God nor are we to speak anything but what aligns with the Word of God. That begins with what God says about who, and what, we are.
Our hope and trust is in the Lord and He will answer those who speak against Him and His anointed children. As it is written:
For in You, O Lord, do I hope; You will answer, O Lord my God. Psalm 38:14-15 (AMP)
Keep your peace, the peace of God that passes all understanding, by refusing to listen to, or speak, words that do not agree with what God has said. His Word is Truth (Joh. 17:17) and will never fail you.
So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11 (AMP)
