Last night we had Bible Study. Through the study of David, we are also studying some of of David’s Psalms. Last night we studied Psalm 19….I LOVE that Psalm, and some of the things that Beth Moore pointed out, I had never considered.
Psalm 19 is a song hailing the revelation of God through nature, through God’s Word (or Torah) to man’s innermost self….his (or her) heart.
One of the word pictures that Mrs. Moore gave us regarding specifically verse 14
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
The word meditation is a musical term, and it means murmuring. The thing that I thought about was humming. Mrs. Moore had shared a story of walking recently and listening to her iPod and the playlist that she was listening to was geared specifically for her walking workout. There was one song in particular this particular day that really caused GREAT JOY in her heart and she stopped walking and started “playing her air guitar”. The picture she gave us of verse 14 is that WE are God’s playlist, the words of our mouth, and the murmurings/hummiing/meditations of our heart are God’s playlist, that is what He listens to……may our, may MY murmurings of our heart and our words create the playlist that would please God so much, bring Him so much joy that He wouldn’t have a choice but to break out and play the air guitar.
Lord may the words of my heart and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to You, oh LORD my Rock & my Redeemer. AMEN
