Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my [firm, impenetrable] Rock and my Redeemer.
BLESSED (HAPPY, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather.
He personally carried our sins in His body on the cross [willingly offering Himself on it, as on an altar of sacrifice], so that we might die to sin [becoming immune from the penalty and power of sin] and live for righteousness; for by His wounds you [who believe] have been healed.
The Passion Translation has been added to the Bible App!
If you’ve never read it, I HIGHLY recommend adding it to your reading and study time.
Today’s verse is coming from this translation:
You can keep your problems all to yourself, so that they grow and become stumbling blocks that trip you up. Or you can make friends with your problems by introducing them to Me and letting Me make them part of My plan.
