May my meditation be pleasing to Him; I will rejoice in the Lord.Psalm 104:34(HCSB)
The secret thoughts of everyman, like those of the Psalmist are personal and private to the individual – and no man can truly know the inner contemplations of our minds; the meditations of our heart or the deepest yearnings of our inner being. But when our thoughts fly to the stability and grace of our Father in heaven– when we meditate upon His faithfulness; contemplate His wonderful grace and reflect upon His word of truth – we discover that our heart is resting on the sure foundation, of peace and hope.
We can keep our thoughts secret from other men, for no one can truly know the inner reflections of our mind – but the Lord looks on the heart and the Lord knows the thoughts that pass through our minds, both good and evil – and the Lord understands the deep meditations of our inner being. He knows when our hearts are looking to Him – for when we are turned towards the Lord, we discover that we are resting on a sure foundation.
When the thoughts of our mind and the ponderings of our hearts have the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ as the focal point of our meditations, they will indeed be pleasing to the Lord – for we are instructed to keep the eyes of our hearts on Jesus, Who is the author and finisher of our faith. When we sing to the Lord of the wonders of His amazing grace, with every breath of our being and glory in the joy of our salvation – then our thoughts will be pleasing to the Lord and our heart will also rejoice in the God our Saviour.
Loving Father I pray that the words of my lips and the meditations of my heart may be pleasing to You. When I think of the glories of Your salvation, the excellencies of Your perfection and the unchanging faithfulness of Your promises to me, I praise Your name for ever and ever, in Jesus precious name I pray, AMEN
