Eloquence - secret of Greatness

Updated on February 28, 2010

Eloquence - secret to greatness



As I was about to give my little niece her bath today, she pointed out to me that the shower cap was wet and she could not use it as such, so I attempted to dry the inside up to the dismay of my niece, she wanted the whole cap dried up not just the inside but the outside as well, I quickly told her that it is does not matter if the outside is wet, the inside is more important than the outside. This statement is linked to this week’s topic as the word of God says that “out of the abundance of heart, the mouth speaks”, this means we all speak out of what is paramount in our hearts, what we are made of and are therefore judged by it; the words of our mouth reveals our entity; we carry and reveal our personalities in our words but is what we speak weighty?, is it full of quality content?, do we take a moment to speak before we speak? Are our spoken words acceptable to God? No wonder king David prayed to God “let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you O Lord”.


Eloquence – the act of speaking fluently, effectively, expressively, meaningfully, pointedly, significantly, gracefully and powerfully. It is considered a powerful tool by professionals but it is not just for them, it is a tool if used appropriately that leads to greatness and destiny fulfilment for everybody like Barack Obama who applied this tool effectively throughout his campaign and reached his greatest height, like Winston Churchill of the great United Kingdom who gave hope to his fellow citizens during war time. These men knew the secret to greatness and used it effectively but the particular story that moved me most was that of Moses when God called him in Exodus 3 & 4. He knew he was not qualified for the great job because of his past and he would not be listened to because of his slow speech, he knew he could not face Pharaoh without been eloquent, he would not be listened to and would possibly be thrown out of the palace; and so he cried to God; “Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue”; David also knew this secret and cried to God, “ let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you o Lord”, king Solomon wrote in Prov. 12:14 & 12:18 “from the fruit of their lips people are filled with good things”, “….but the tongue of the wise brings healing”.  


When we speak effectively, destinies changes, Moses destiny changed after this encounter with God as God taught him what to say and helped him to speak, As we embark on another journey of life this week, let us watch our words everywhere we find ourselves, does our words bring hope and change like Moses? Or does our word bring healing, deliverance and salvation like Jesus? Does our word affect lives and generations around us? What does our word speak of us? The words of our mouth pave way for us where men say there is no way, our entity is revealed in our spoken words to a stranger, colleagues, families, and friends and anywhere we may find ourselves. Our destinies lie in the eloquence of our words, a wise man draws a crowd through his words, nobody wants to listen to a foolish man; an eloquent man becomes the centre of attraction and attention to impact his audience and generation.  A successful man without eloquence cannot generate a positive impact in his generation; he needs the help of an eloquent man.


Prayer: Father Lord I pray that you give us an eloquent tongue this week; I pray that you teach us what to say anywhere we find ourselves and help us to speak in Jesus name. Amen
