ARE MY WORDS . . . . . .

signin



Psalm 19:14 (NIV)
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, 
O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Meditating on Psalm 19 this morning because that's what we were asked to do at SheReadsTruth.com.



I read.  Prayed.  
     I read.  Meditated.  
          I read.  Looked up words.  
               I read.  I wrote in my notebook.
                    I read.  I wondered. . . . . . . 

Are my words and are my meditations following the directions I received in the first 13 verses.

Are my words/meditations declaring, proclaiming, pouring forth, displaying, being heard, and going out to God's glory and His works?  (vs 1-4a)

Are my words/meditations coming forth, rejoicing, rising, making a circuit so everyone around me see God's glory and His works? (vs 4b-6)

Are my words/meditations reviving, giving wisdom, giving joy, giving light, enduring, precious, sweet, warning so that God's glory and His works are the reward?  (vs 7-11)

Are my words/meditations discerning, forgiving so I am kept and found blameless?  (vs 12-13)

No.  My words and meditations are not always doing the above.  

BUT now when I pray or hear prayed, 

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be 
pleasing in your sight, 
O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.

 I will think a little harder on what exactly my words and my meditations should be.  I will remember to take Psalm 19:1-13 along with me so that I can live Psalm 19:14.
