Psalm 19:14 May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.
When we speak to others with love and patience, and we think on the generosity and power of God, we are worshiping and pleasing our Lord. When we encourage others in faith, when we marvel at the beauty of nature, and when we find joy simply being in God’s presence, we are engaging in spiritual acts of worship. When our words and thoughts reflect our loving Creator and Redeemer, we are in unity with God. God truly cares about our hearts’ meditations and minds’ preoccupations. God redeems us from unproductive speech and unrighteous thoughts; He transforms us with His pure and powerful Spirit of grace, and He unites us with love. Pray God aligns our mouths and hearts with His, so our words and thoughts are acceptable and lovely to God. May our very heartbeats be in harmony with God!
