“May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.”Psalm 19:14 NIV
Our lives are called to be a living sacrifice before the Lord. The only way the words of our mouths and the meditations of our heart can be pleasing unto the Lord is by simply abiding in Him.
In ourselves we are incapable of this. As we abide daily in the Lord it is He who leads, guides, and strengthens us. Where we often fall short is we try to live the Christian life in our own power. The whole reason Jesus returned to His Father in Heaven is so we could receive the Holy Spirit.
As we spend time daily in God’s word our minds will naturally be set upon the things of Heaven. God has made this journey very simple and if we will simply walk in obedience the Lord will pour out His blessing upon our lives.
