Jan. 27

Hello and thanks for joining in on to today’s daily devotion. Today is Wednesday. January 27th. The 4th day of the Hebraic week.

Our verse today is Ps. 19:14

14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O YHWH, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Have you ever thought about this? Do you make this your prayer? Do you make it a focus that everything that comes out of your mouth is going to be pleasing to Him? I mean everything. That means in our everyday casual conversations with friends to everything in between. But it’s in our conversations with friends where we normally let our guard down right? It’s in those conversations where it can be so easy to say “Well, don’t tell anyone, but…” Or “Did you hear about so and so?”

If we don’t want someone talking about us in such manners, what makes us think it’s OK to do so to others? Can we really think that YHWH is pleased with such words? If those words are coming out of our mouths, what are we actually saying in our heart? And so we see the second part of the verse…

14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O YHWH, my Rock and my Redeemer.

So everything that we even think needs to be kept in check. Everything.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until tomorrow, shalom!
