Psalm 19:14 Verse of the Day 10/15/13
Psalm 19 is a song of praise and thanksgiving to God for the gifts of his creation and Law. The first half of the psalm is a meditation upon God and his desires, and the second half of the psalm applies those realities to us and our needs. This verse offers a fitting conclusion the psalm by bringing both halves together in a simple prayer. Our words and thoughts are pleasing to the Lord when they are firmly grounded in His truth.
As you spend some time in prayer, make this verse the substance of your request to God. Ask the Lord to make your words and thoughts pleasing to Him, and to give you a desire to ground them both in His truth. Ask the Lord to increase your knowledge and understanding of His word, and to give you a heart that longs to spend the time necessary to grow in that knowledge.
