Message of the Day: Desire That Your Words and Your Thoughts Be Pure and Pleasing To God
“Let 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, NKJV)
The wonders of the universe display God’s glory, power and wisdom. Although these things cannot speak, day after day they tell people that there is a God and teach them something of his nature. The sun, with its splendor and brilliance, is a particularly notable witness to God’s glory.
If, however, people are to know God personally and live according to his will, they need a more detailed knowledge than the physical creation can provide. They need God’s written Word. That Word is the authoritative revelation of God’s will for them. The knowledge that comes from it gives them new life, confidence, wisdom, joy, understanding and purity. It has a worth that is beyond value, and brings an enjoyment that is beyond comaprison.
It warns and instruct people, making them more sensitive to sin and giving them an increased desire to cleanse their lives and live blamelessly. As the Word does its work, they will want all their thoughts words, and actions to be pleasing to God.
This gives us the notion that God has such control over our thoughts and words, that he can cause us to order them correctly; that it is proper to pray to him to exert such an influence on our minds that our words and thoughts may be right and pure; and that it is one of the sincere desires and wishes of true righteousness that the thoughts and words may be acceptable or pleasing to God.
So let our mouth speak nothing but what is true, kind, ad profitable, and our heart meditate nothing but what is holy, pure, and moral.
