Daily Devotional: October 16, 2023 – Psalm 19:14

“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.” – Psalm 19:14

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

Ever thought about what we say or think? Or how our words and ideas matter to others and to God? Today’s verse, Psalm 19:14, makes us pause and reflect on this.

Look at it like a beautiful painting. Picture each word as a color, each thought as a stroke, creating a masterpiece pleasing to the Lord. Only pleasant colors and gentle strokes, right?

But, it’s not always easy. Sometimes, we paint with harsh colors or wrong strokes. We might say unkind words or think bad thoughts. And we must remember, our Lord, our Rock and Comforter, is watching all these.

So, what do we do? That’s where our verse steps in. It guides us. It whispers, “Speak words that bring joy, not hurt. Think thoughts that bring peace, not hatred.” It teaches us to please God with our words and thoughts.

Isn’t it great to have such a guide? It’s like a compass, showing us the right way. Each time we say something good or think something kind, we’re walking the right path. And who wouldn’t love to follow the right path?

As today unfolds, let’s try to create a painting that’s pleasing to God. Let’s use our words and thoughts wisely. Let’s remember our verse and seek to make our Lord, our Rock, and Redeemer, happy. Because at the end of the day, a pleasing painting is all that matters.

My Prayer

Dear Lord, we know our words and thoughts matter to You. Help us remember this when we speak or think. Help us to use kind words and peaceful thoughts.

We understand it’s not easy, Lord. There will be times when we forget and make mistakes. But we trust in Your love and guidance. You are our Rock and Redeemer, our guiding Star. Help us to create a masterpiece pleasing to You.

Finally, Lord, bless us with wisdom. Wisdom to choose the right colors and strokes in the painting of our life. Let our life be something that pleases You, every day. With Your grace, we know we can do it.

Amen.
