Psalms 19:14. May my words and my thoughts be acceptable in your sight,
O Lord, my sheltering rock and my redeemer.

We hear this scripture prayed before many sermons. It is a good one for all of us to pray the first thing every morning. We are asking God to help us guard the words that come out of our mouths. We are asking for each word to be acceptable to Him. Not only the words we speak but every thought we have are to be acceptable to God. God is love. For all our words and thoughts to be acceptable to God they must be spoken and thought with love. This is not love for self, our own wants, desires or ways and pride. Thos is the love of God for all expletive. Our question is do we really want to speak only these. Words and think only these thoughts? To be honest sometimes we like to think bad thoughts about someone who has hurt our feelings. We don’t want to be forgiving right away. We even want to speak evil of them to others. Let us start prating this scripture throughout each day and ask God’s Holy Spirit to help us really mean it.
