Father God, thank You for the wisdom of your Scriptures that encourages and teaches me. I sense your presence as I think about these words from David. They reach into my day and straighten my thoughts. They give purpose to my steps. They warn me to keep watch over my words and deeds. I seek to glorify You, Father. I want to know your peace at all times. May You be foremost in my thoughts. I speak my reverence in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“Come, O children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. What man is there who desires life and loves many days, that he may see good? Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit. Turn away from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.” (Psalm 34: 11-14 ESV)
