Daily Devotional: Thoughts and Words Are Intimately Connected

Prayer Starter:  God, I realize that my thoughts and words are are connected. I don''t want to try and 'fake' on the outside what isn't real inside. Please adjust my thoughts so that I can speak pleasant, godly words.

Proverbs 16 23:24 The heart of the wise instructs his mouth And adds pervasiveness to his lips. 24 Pleasant words are a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

False fronts and not trying to BS people? No matter what you show outside, who and what your are inside is what God sees.

How one acts when around other people is typically a reflection of what is going on the inside.  God does look at the inside and knows our ways intimately.  One of my favorite passages of Scripture is . . .

Psalm 139:

Lord, You have searched me and known me.
You know when I sit down and when I stand up;
You understand my thoughts from far away.
You observe my travels and my rest;
You are aware of all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue,
You know all about it, Lord.
You have encircled me;
You have placed Your hand on me.
This extraordinary knowledge is beyond me.
It is lofty; I am unable to reach it.

I have to remind my self that I hear God in my thoughts...that voice that talks to me...So, God would also be able to hear my thoughts.

It is true that God sees the heart. I believe that when you really don't feel like doing the righteous thing, like loving an enemy for example, and you fake it, God will reward that gesture by eventually transforming it into a real feeling. I don't believe it's false to fake what is the will of God. He understands our human nature and when we push through at times we don't feel like it, He'll come through anyway.
