It is not what goes in the mouth, but what comes out that defiles and destroys. What is in your heart is revealed in what comes out of your mouth. Take care to see the wickedness that is a part of this generation that has polluted your thinking. Turn to the Lord and He will clean you from the inside out. See that the Lord who saves will bring you to where you need to be.
Lord, I may pretend to the world which sees me, but You know my heart. You know the things that go on inside of me and the ways in which I think and speak that are not pleasing in Your sight. Guide me by grace to repent and come before You willing to be cleaned that I may speak what is right and fitting. Lead me in Your ways O Lord and through Your Spirit help me to follow.
Lord Jesus, You know what it is to walk in this world in the midst of all its strife. By Your example and through Your grace, lead me to live as You lived in this world holding fast to what is true and being faithful to the Father’s will. May I learn from You to do the Father’s will in and through all things knowing that I shall become like You just as the Word promises. Amen.
