Let me use these two examples that seem to be the same. BUG/INSECT
It seems to me that these words are interchangeable and so i looked them up and here we go............
Bug....................... an insect or other creeping or crawling invertebrate (as a spider or centipede)
Insect............... a small animal that has six legs and a body formed of 3 part, and may have wings.
I always thought these words were interchangeable until now. I know we all use words we don't realize are incorrect BUT ladies and gentlemen, WORDS HAVE SO MUCH POWER!!! God created by SPEAKING this planet, the universe into existence! So let me share this now......... How many of us say this little Idiom: sick and tired. Do you realize you are speaking out/calling into existence that you are sick and you are tired. That is not the best to speak out over yourself. How about saying you are well and refreshed, even if you don't feel 100%, and after a short while, you ARE well and refreshed. Be so aware of your words, your terminology, and know you most certainly can do a word study in scripture to learn of the examples of terminology, of words , etc. I bet you hadn't heard/known of the word idiom. This is the definition of idiom:
1.a group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words (e.g., rain cats and dogs, see the light ).
Just thought you would like to know that a reason you might be having problems, is because of your own idioms!
BE aware and whatsoever things are GOOD, yes think on these things, but speak them as well. Philippians 4:8.
