How Are You Speaking?

Hosea 6:11—7:16

While some “cry out” to God in times of crisis and low points in life, others continue to “speak falsely” about Him. By “speaking falsely” Hosea probably means words of bitterness and resentment about God that do not reflect His true character and nature. And yet, the irony is that the low points people often find themselves in is not because of God’s unfaithfulness toward His children but His children’s unfaithfulness toward God.

Words spoken falsely about God sometimes come from His very own children. A great danger in speaking falsely about God, for whatever the reason, is that it can hinder someone else from crying out to God. Why would someone want to cry out to a God when they hear others (often God’s children) defaming His name? We must be very cautious to never speak words about God that could hinder someone in their spiritual life.

Let us be sure to follow the words of the psalmist so that we never speak falsely about God, “May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer” (Psalm 19:14).
