Updated on August 22, 2010

"Faye's Daily Words Of Encouragement # 280 Today's Word Is: Dumb"

Definition of the word Dumb: Means unable or willing to speak, as from shock, or emotion, or lacking intelligence.

Exodus chapter 4 - 11 : And the Lord said unto him, who hath made man's mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing , or the blind: have not I Lord.

Isaiah chapter 35 - 6 : then shall the lame man leap as an hart and the tongue of the dumb sing; for in the wilderness shall waters break out and streams in the desert.

Matthews chapter 9 - 32 : As they went out, behold they brought to him a man possessed with a devil.hem down at Jesus feet, and he healed them.

Matthews chapter 15 -30 : And a great multitude came unto him, having with them those that were dumb, blind, maimed,and many others and cast them down at Jesus feet, and he healed them.

Mark chapter 7 - 37 : And were beyond measure astonished, saying, he had done all things well . He maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.

Mark chapter 9 - 17 : And one of the multitude answered and said, master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit.

Today's daily words of encouragement word is Dumb: Which means unable or willing to speak as fron shcok, or emotion or lacking intelligence. The bible tells us of all the deaf and dumb, and lame people Jesus healed in the bible. I thinmk some people look upon dumbness as a curse but sometimes, not being able to speak can be a blessing in disguise.

Sometimes our mouths are the worse of us, because we speak to soon sometimes. Jesus said a fool is even considered wise; when he keeps his mouth closed. I think the old adage, that says" Think before you speak" still carries a lot of weight.

      I've sure spoken when I shouldn't have. There are so many maladies that afflict humans. Thank you Faye.
