Acceptable Words

“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 (NKJV).

Acceptable words are words that are good and life giving. These types of words do not tear down, but the buildup, they encourage, and uplift. Acceptable words are pleasing and sustaining. They are words that bring a smile to the face of the hearer. Whether the hearer be you, your spouse, your child, your friend, or your co-worker; we want our words to be pleasing to the LORD. Secondly, we want the thoughts that continually churn in our heads to be pleasing. That means focusing our thoughts on what is true, noble, right, pure lovely, and admirable (Philippians 4:8) When we think of these things and praise God for them we don’t have time to worry and fret.

Choose today what you will say and what you will think about! Thank God for every blessing no matter the size.

The peace of Christ be with you,

Lizzy Cate
