Psalm 19:14 (NIV)
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight,
Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
When I was in middle school, a beautiful German Shepherd was lost in our neighborhood and one day she came to our yard where we were playing and she stayed for days. After searching for her owner, we finally found who she belonged to, we were heartbroken because we had fallen in love with her and she with us. When the owner came to pick her up, he could see the mutual bond between us and he thought she had found a better home than what he could provide so she was given to us. He told us her name was Heidi.
Heidi was extremely smart, she was only a couple years old, but she was wise, she knew when and where danger lurked and she protected me and my brothers from possible harm.
I remember thinking that Heidi could read my mind, she seemed to know my thoughts and even when my words were unkind, she still loved me and protected me.
Sometimes It’s hard to think of our Father in heaven as being all-knowing. He, being able to hear the words of our mouth, able to know the thoughts in our mind and the condition of our heart, and yet, even when our words are not pure and our thoughts are not pleasing in His sight, He still remains our Rock and our Redeemer.
Although, at times I am embarrassed and ashamed of my thoughts, words and deeds, I am comforted knowing that God is merciful and ready to forgive me when I repent of my sins.
May we choose to glorify God through our thoughts, words, and deeds.
And whatsoever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. NIV
