The Words of My Mouth

4 08 2011

May my words and my thoughts be acceptable to you, O Lord, my refuge and my redeemer! Psalm 19:14

We use words everyday to communicate what we think and feel.  Sometimes our words are careless and harmful, not reflecting God’s Word concerning His children.  These are a few examples: “That is going to make me sick”, “I can’t remember anything”, “I am always broke”, “I can’t do this”.  The Bible tells us that the power of life and death are in our tongue. (Proverbs 18:21) Yesterday in Bible Study, we were reminded that as God’s Children our words should be lined up with His Word.  What if I were diligent about speaking life in every situation… What if I spoke about God’s desire for me to be healthy, to provide for my needs, to provide protection and that I can do all things through Christ… I am so thankful for this reminder, to line up my thoughts and my words with God’s word, because it reflects God’s truth about me.
