“May Our Words and Thoughts Please God”
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to You, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.--------Psalm 19:14
This Scripture should be the prayer of EVERY believer. But I fear that some veer away from this particular verse, mainly because it is somewhat convicting in nature. And causes us to take a close look at our mouths and hearts. The two parts of us that speak volumes about our character, our lifestyle, and our weaknesses.
The Psalmist knew that the WORDS we speak and the THOUGHTS we have are controlled by the content of the HEART. And in order to please God, we must guard our mouths and minds and SPEAK and THINK words and thoughts that would be acceptable to The Almighty God.
When we give our HEART and LIFE to Christ then we become a NEW creature and the OLD ways go away and ALL things are made NEW. We have a NEW mind, mouth and heart. So we should allow the Holy Spirit, who indwells us, CONTROL of our mind, mouth and heart.
Sometimes it is HARD to beak old habits and to refrain from the old lifestyle, but it is NOT impossible, because it is the work of God’s Spirit, who indwells us, to help us become acclimated to the NEW life in Christ, and to help us put off the old ways and embrace the NEW ways. We MUST allow the Holy Spirit to have CONTROL of our mind, mouth and heart, to enable us to become the NEW creature God wants us to be.
The question is; are you willing to let go of the OLD and to embrace the NEW? You MUST if you want to be ACCEPTABLE TO God, your Rock and Redeemer. Surround yourself with the things of God and shun the things that once held you captive to a DOOMED, SINFUL LIFESTYLE.
If you have not given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are living a DOOMED, SINFUL lifestyle and your mind, mouth and heart are cesspools of sinful thoughts words and deeds. You need to change your DOOMED future to a future that holds HOPE, you can do that NOW, by: CONFESSING your sins to God and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and change your OLD, DOOMED, SINFUL lifestyle for a NEW, IMPROVED lifestyle. Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He’s waiting!!!
