“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer” – (Psalm 19:14)
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. Whatever we think about is going to come out of our mouths. Out of the abundance of our hearts will our mouth speak.
It is very important that our minds meditate upon the good things of God, upon His Word. MEDITATE means “to go over and over.” I find that when my mind wants to dwell on ugly, negative things, the best remedy is to memorize certain scriptures or chapters of the Bible. Then I begin to speak those scripture aloud, and my mind lines up with the Word. God’s Word becomes the abundance of my heart from which my mouth speaks.
Another special blessing that comes from meditation on the Word is that the scripture will become stored in you—like data in a computer. Then when you need the Word in a hurry, you just push a spiritual button and out it comes—ready to be ministered to any situation or circumstances!
Dear Heavenly Father,
Let us take hold of Your Word today. Let us memorize it, think it, speak it, act it, eat it, dream it, and live it. We know that when we are grounded in Your Word, then every word that comes from our mouths will be acceptable to You. Our words come from Your strength.
In Jesus’s Name,
