“Lord, Are My Thoughts and Words Acceptable?”

acceptable to you

by Dona Hake

“Lord, are my thoughts and words acceptable to you?”   This would probably be a very good question and prayer that should cross our minds often.  I believe that this question would keep us out of much trouble that could easily be avoided.  Many times we are quick to think things or form opinions based on our first impression.  Maybe you are thinking things and speaking things based on what you have seen in the past.  As a result of not asking the Lord for how you are to respond in word and in thought , you could get yourself in a difficult situation or offend someone.

Psalm 19:14 (AMP)
“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart

be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my

[firm, impenetrable] Rock and my Redeemer.”

It is only God that knows you all too well.  He understands how you tend to think and react.  He knows every hurt and pain that is still in the healing process within you.  He is well able to help you hold your tongue and alter your thought process.  It is He that can help us to be rock solid in every area of our life because He is the Rock!  Look to Him as often as you need to be your Helper today that you may think thoughts and speak words that are pleasing to Him.
