Let not your heart utter anything hastily before God.
Do not be rash with your mouth, And let not your heart utter anything hastily before God. For God is in heaven, and you on earth; Therefore let your words be few.
Praises and honor be to the Heavenly Father in Jesus’ precious and matchless name !
The subject verse from the Book of Ecclesiastes touches a very important aspect of our spiritual life. The way we come before God shows our attitude towards the Almighty God. As the following verse from the Book of Psalm asks us. let us always reach Him with thanksgiving and praise. We are to bless His name for who He is. Though it does not mean that He depends on our praise and honor for His existence, but out of love and reverence. Moreover, the Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent God is glorified and exalted to the eternity.
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.Psalms 100:4 KJV
Approaching God with rash words, seeking selfish needs could never be the right way. Our words should always glorify the Almighty God. We are not to speak any vain or meaningless words. Very importantly we shall not let our hearts utter hastily anything before God. Our coming to the Lord shall not be same as how we approach the people. Although we are unworthy in every way, He chose to shower upon us His grace, rich mercies and the unconditional love. Truly, the love of God is continually protecting us from the adversary, the devil.
Therefore brethren, let our words be few, but fully worthy of praising, thanksgiving and glorifying the Lord our God. In Jesus’ matchless name. Amen.
