Praise Him – Paula White
“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight…” Psalm 19:14
When we capture God’s Word each morning, we are feeding our spirit man, gaining strength for each new day. The psalmist parallels the meditation of the heart with the words of the mouth so that when our speech agrees with God’s, we make a melody in the spirit. The two concepts (meditation and words) are to harmonize to blend God’s lyrics to our “sheet music.”
The Hebrew word for meditate again is “hagah”, but this time the psalmist uses it as if to cause the reader to speak out loud in order to make music in the heart. In fact, the Hebrew word “higgayon” refers to the music of a harp (Psalm 92:3) and is intended to bring peace and encouragement to the heart (Psalm 9:16).
When you focus on seeing yourself as what you are to become, then it brings such joy to the heart that you will make music or give a sound of victory. A joyous shout will come, a heart of laughter will burst forth and a feeling of comfort will ring in your ears! Read Ephesians 5:19, 20 and begin to make a joyful sound.
Make music with your words and become God’s instrument of praise!
“God can turn your day into a sweet melody; start singing.”
