Psalm 19:14 “May my words and my thoughts be acceptable in your sight”
This verse jumped out at me yesterday in my devotion time. What an awesome prayer! A prayer we should all pray regularly.
Our words have power. Our words have impact. They matter. We all need to be careful what we say and when. People around us make decisions about us based on what we say. Our children repeat what we say. More importantly, our children find their self-worth in what we say. If our words are acceptable to God, then they are right and they are appropriate and true and we can have no regrets over what we have said. I know I have walked away from situations wishing I hadn’t said something. If I had made sure that my words were acceptable to God there would have been no regrets.
If we would make sure our thoughts are acceptable to God, then our actions will be as well.
Every day we face situations that bring us to a choice. Will we react negatively or will we react in a way that pleases God?
May we think and speak according to the character of God and that only happens through real relationship with Him.
Just something to think about today.
