Psalm 19:14, Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my rock, and my redeemer.

This past week Andrea shared this with me, saying she had been meditating on this scripture and that it was very sobering to her. Yes, and very penetrating to think that our loving God knows every thought of ours as if our heads were transparent and He could see into them and see each thought as it occurred. Well, it is almost like that, isn’t it?

David called the Lord his Rock and Redeemer. He knew that by his words he was justified or condemned, Mat. 12:37.

Most assuredly, he was thinking and speaking in such a way to agree with our Lord that He was the Rock of his life and the Redeemer of all that would harm and separate him from his God.

How will this penetrating truth change our thoughts and words? And what will be the effect of it?
