Words and Thoughts


Have your ever found yourself saying something while thinking about something else altogether? Many a times, there exists a dichotomy between the words we speak and the thoughts in our mind. We praise God with our words while cursing men (who are made in his own image) with our thoughts (James 3:9). We ought not so to be (James 3:10). If someone has hurt us, we ought to forgive them as God has forgiven us and like the Psalmist’s, let our prayer be, that the words of our mouth and the meditation of our heart be acceptable in the sight of the LORD, our strength and redeemer.

Is your words and thoughts both acceptable in the sight of the LORD?

Psalm 19:14 (KJV)
14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
