“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:14
The Bible is very explicit about the importance of the words that we speak.
But keeping the meditation of our hearts acceptable to God is something we should also seek.
Are the meditations of your heart more like worry or negativity in recent days? Think, instead, upon God’s promises, thanking Him, and rejoicing in Him always!
P. A. Oltrogge
“Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!” Philippians 4:4 NKJV
“But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night.” Psalm 1:2 NKJV
“But to the Son (Jesus) He says:
‘Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of gladness more than Your companions,'”
Hebrews 1:8-9 NKJV
Worry or complaining are draining;
Praising is life-giving and joy-raising!
