Words and Thoughts
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
What if everything you ever said and everything you ever thought was pleasing to the Lord? Just think for a moment how radically different, for example, yesterday would have been. If every word that coursed through your brain and crossed over your lips was ordained by God’s beauty, how would that have changed the direction of your conversations? How would that have impacted what you put your mind to?
Jesus is your rock, but he is also your redeemer. If you are like many people, in the traps of your words and thoughts, it is so easy to forget that he is there for you. Perhaps if your conversations and quiet times were to be saturated in God’s patterns, in those things that please his heart, then today will bring a new level of recognition of the Lord’s firm presence in your life.
Pray for the Day:
Dear Jesus, throughout this day, may my words and my thoughts be pleasing to you. Amen.
