Definition of the word Slow:Means taking a long time to do something, or not hasty or fast, or dull in comprehending, or tedious, or not b risk, or less than normal speed.

Exodus chapter 4 - 10 : And Moses said unto the Lord, O my Lord,I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant, but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.

Nehemiah chapter 9 - 17 :And refused to obey, neither were mindful of thy wonders that thou didst among them.

Psalms chapter 103 - 8 : The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and plenteous in mercy.

Proverbs chapter 14 - 29 : He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly.

Acts chapter 27 - 7 : And when we had sailed slowly under masny days and scarce were come over agaianst Cnidus, the wind, not suffering us, we sailed under
Crete, over against Salome.

Titus chapter 1 - 12 : One of themselves even a prophet of their own, said the Cretians are always liars, evil beasts slow bellies

Today's daily words of encouragement word is Slow: Which mean taking  a long time doing something,or not hasty or fast, or dull in compre3hending, or tedious, or not brisk or less than normal speed. We should all use the word Slow in our vocabulary more often, especially if it prevent anger and or slow it down a tad.  We must be slow to anger, slow to lie, slow to judge, to sin, and slow to commit vicious acts upon our brothers and sisters in Christ.

We also must be slow to misuse and abuse, slow to mischief and fighting one another, and to use a slow tongue in every days life. Beware of what we say and how we say it to each other, and have a slow tongue in our doing and actions.  Remember, he that is slow to wrath, has great understanding,but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly.

      I believe that the God in us will lead us and guide us, he clear the pathway, He gave us a map call the Bible, when He speaks to our Spirit, He confirms it with His Word. Because greater is He that is us, that he that is in the world.So we need to rely on the God in us to lead the body which way to go.

      Hi creativeone59, I recieved your email and I had to get up from the computer for a moment, when I returned, I don't know whether I hit the wrong button or not but I couldn't find you. But I knew where you were. Amen! We that are in Christ are never lost, there is a way to get where we need to be. Remember Jesus is the way, the light, and He directs our path.

      Love Ya.

      I like slow, it's a lesson here,"James 1:19, Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath. For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God".The Bible tells us to think before we speak, to me that gives us that split second to hear God, and when we open our mouths, he said he would speak through us. Keep up the good work.

      Slow is a good thing - especially the older you get - and it sure beats the alternative!

      It,s getting easier to slow down as the years pass, but i know what u mean, sometime i rush ahead and do or think something too fast, if we could just wait on the lord, i have a prayer request, it,s my son Jackie, he has had two back surgeries and he is having a lot of pain in his back now plus his foot is numb, he is a diabetic so i,m really worried about him, they,re waiting on the ins. to ok an MRI.

      Thank you so much Benny Faye
