“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord.” Psalm 19:14
Someone might get the idea that I really like the 19th Psalm. They would not be mistaken. It begins with a clear declaration of the reality of God as demonstrated in His work. Paul echoes this in Romans 1 where he says “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made.” Then the 19th Psalm presents the bouquet of God’s word and establishes it as the means to know God and be saved and do His will. Paul echoes this sentiment in II Timothy 3 where he says, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable.”
God’s creation and His word are like two verses of a beautiful hymn. Verse 14 is the chorus. Since we have God revealed in His creation and in His word, what is the meditation of our hearts? All that we could ever need or hope for is contained in what God has given. Therefore, let our meditations be on that which is truly blessed and will be a true blessing. Our hearts can always find true food, true peace and true assurance when we have meditation that is acceptable in His sight.
Dear Father, Thank You for direction for joy and peace in our life. Amen.
