Are you blessed with a good memory? Can you quickly recall the name of some one you met only once? I am terrible with names, very often forgetting names of those I know very well. I just go blank! I very seldom introduce people; because of this embarrassing memory loss. I guess names are just filed away somewhere for me “to retrieve.” They are “right on the tip of my tongue!”
How often does searching for a name of a person, old movie, or book title drive you to distraction? I can have it bugging me for days! I go through the letters of the alphabet in my mind, hoping it will jog my memory. Many times out of nowhere it pops in my head; and I am so relieved!
We all would love to say just the right words, at just the right moment. King David went one step further. “The Spirit of the Lord spoke by me, and His word was on my tongue (2 Samuel 23:2 NKJ).” Just imagine David’s delight! He spoke with authority. God’s word was right “on the tip of his tongue!”
