“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.” (Psalm 19:14 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible.)
You’re never too old to learn something new. I’m proof of that at age 70. I pray this familiar scripture on a daily basis. As I read it again, I realized the approval process starts with my mouth. My mouth sets me up for God’s approval or His disdain.
The psalmist prays to God to keep him from sin, and then begs that He would accept his performance. If we excuse our sins, we cannot expect God to ignore what we have done. He is an all-knowing God. Nothing is hidden from Him.
Prayer: Dear Lord, more than anything I want you be pleased with the words that come from my mouth and the thoughts I meditate on in my mind. This is my prayer today. In Jesus Name, Amen!
