“Let my tongue sing of Your word, for all Your commandments are righteousness. Let Your hand be ready to help me, for I have chosen Your precepts. I long for Your salvation, O Lord, and Your law is my delight.” (Psalm 119:172-174)
What comes out of the mouth speaks of what is in the heart. Do not let the heart rule, but come into the discipline of the Lord and be ruled by what is right and good always. This world has been in rebellion and the Lord has offered salvation for those who come to Him. Come to the Lord and know the goodness of life and the promise of eternity. Let His precepts govern your life.
Lord, daily I am mixed up and often do not know when things are awry. Lead me by Your Spirit to seek what is right and good. Help me now and always to abide in the hope of salvation You grant to those who trust in You. Let my longing be for the truth and Your presence alone that I would not give into the pressures of this world, living as the unbelieving do.
Jesus, You are the way of life and You grant life through salvation to all who believe. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of salvation. Lead me according to Your goodness that I would now and forever abide in the precepts of truth. Help me to see Your goodness and mercy and to abide there day in and day out. May my mouth speak Your teaching and my heart and mind abide with You. Amen.
