Today I got one of my bibles out that I haven't used in a while. I opened it up and started reading in the book of Psalm.
Psalm 19:14Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in Your sight,
O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer.
For the last couple of weeks I have been being reminded how important it is that I watch what I say. A lot of the devotions I have read recently are about complaining and talking negatively. When I read this verse today God reminded me that it is so important to not have a negative or complaining attitude. If Jesus were in the room with us would we change the way we were talking? We need to ask the Lord everyday to help us with how we think so that our words are guided by Him.
Something that I try to pray everyday is this...
Father God help me to be more like You today. Help me to see with Your eyes, to think Your thoughts, to say Your words so that people I am with will somehow see You.
Sometimes, that's not exactly how it all works out. So...for that reason this will be my "memory" verse for the week.
