To know that we are acting or reacting in a way that is acceptable to God, we need to stop and pray. A simple prayer is given to us at the end of Psalm 19. We just need to stop and ask God to give us the right, gracious words to say and the right heart to guide our actions. When we rely on God's grace and mercy, He will provide us with the way to react in an acceptable way consistent with our faith and with His teachings!
When life causes you to react, stop and pray for God's guidance!
Thank You for Your grace and mercy and Your willingness to guide me through any situation I face. Help me to draw closer to You so that my words and actions are acceptable to You. Through Jesus, my Redeemer, I pray, amen.
