I just had a light bulb moment while I was thinking about “Washing Over You”
Your love so deep
Is washing over me
There is a connection between Ephesians 5:26 and 1 Corinthians 14:1 🙀
Ephesians 5:26 “His words evoke her beauty. Everything he does and says is designed to bring the best out of her wives” (The MSG) or “To make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word” (Living Bible)?
1 Corinthians 14:1 “earnestly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophesy”
My thoughts brought me back to Ezekiel 37, where God asked Ezekiel to prophesy to the dry bones (dead dreams). Husbands are in way being used by God, as spokesperson, to bring hope to their wives.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21). Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones (Proverbs 16:24)
