For there is not a word on my tongue, but behold, O LORD, You know it altogether. (Psalm 139:8)
If Psalm 139:2 is true, it follows that the One who knows our thoughts also knows our words. God knows the vocalization, the syllable, or the word before it is formed on our lips. Sadly, many of us would have to confess that we get our mouth in gear before we get our minds in gear. Often we speak before we think, either to bless or to wound. It may help us in the future to realize that before we speak a word, the Lord knows it altogether.
Be challenged by Romans
Romans doesn’t let us sit still. In Romans, Paul talks about the obligation we are under to spread the truth of the Gospel and to engage with the culture around us. He talks about the journey we must make after we accept the God’s gift of salvation. We are called to leave our comfortable and easy corners and spread the message of Christ’s sacrifice to everyone around us, because we have been freely justified!
