May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight,
Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
There are certain words and certain meditations within us that are considered pleasing to our Father in Heaven. There are words spoken, and thoughts meditated upon which bring Him joy. WOW!
All too often we are aware of the “other stuff”. Words and phrases, thoughts that bring Him displeasure.
You know the stuff.
But the great promise here is that we can know a way of living that God finds pleasing. It is not found by doing mighty exploits. It does not consist of becoming a success in the eyes of the world. It does not require fame and renown amongst men.
Rather it is found in the inner-life. It is words and meditations – simple things that any of us can choose – that has the potential to bring Him pleasure and joy. That is an amazing thought. Your thought life and your lips created by God Himself can move His heart.
It is often said that nothing we can do can make God love us more. Whilst that is true, it is also evident that we do have the ability – in our thoughts and words – to bring pleasure to God.
PRAYER: Father, I want this to be true of me. That I could be one who through my small mind and fallen mouth can be pleasing to you. Grace me Lord, In Jesus name, Amen.
