Sometimes I know that we just need a moment with Him!
I mean in your mind.
Steal away and reflect over recent days or weeks.
Maybe even to some of the verses we learned as children.
A couple of them come to my mind right now.
Psalm 119:11 — “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.” It is true that the more of God’s Word we have within us (hidden there), the less we will! This text alone could keep us out of trouble.
And here is a perfect example from Proverbs 15:1 — “A soft answer turns away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.”
When we were children didn’t we also learn Proverbs 3:5-6? “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
Be careful with your words … your responses. In the language of today we might say, Words that are spoken too quickly and without thought could hurt yourself or someone else. Think before speaking! Every thought we have does not have to be spoken out loud or expressed!
Our speech should be as grace.
