Psalm 119:157

July 09, 2020

Many are my persecutors and my adversaries, but I do not swerve from your testimonies.

It is Your testimonies and promises that sustain me and keep me testifying to Your faithfulness and goodness.

Psalm 119:156

July 08, 2020

Great is your mercy, O LORD; give me life according to your rules.

Why do I kick against the Rules?

They are not onerous, but are right and generous, all demonstrating Your dictum to love You with all my heart, mind, soul and strength and my neighbor as myself with the promise of a life characterized by righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

How can anyone find that offensive? Why is mercy necessary to bring me into that life? Only my stubbornness and refusal to recognize that I am not a god.

Psalm 119:155

July 07, 2020

Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek your statutes.

The Great Commission calls me to make disciples and that is a two-step process.

Step 1 is to introduce a person to Christ, to lead them to a commitment to follow You faithfully is all aspects of their life.

Step 2 is to teach them day by day what them means and how to live up to the covenant that they have entered into.

Psalm 119:145-152

July 05, 2020

With my whole heart, I cry; answer me, O LORD! I will keep your statutes. I call to you; save me, that I may observe your testimonies. I rise before dawn and cry for help; I hope in your words. My eyes are awake before the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promise. Hear my voice according to your steadfast love; O LORD, according to your justice give me life. They draw near who persecute me with evil purpose; they are far from your law. But you are near, O LORD, and all your commandments are true. Long have I known from your testimonies that you have founded them forever.

I cry, I keep, I call, I observe, I hope, I meditate on Your statutes, on Your law, on Your commandments, on Your testimonies, on Your precepts, on Your promises, on Your love, on Your justice, on Your righteousness, on Your mercy, on Your grace, on Your goodness, on Your perfection, on You, the Author and Perfecter of my faith.

Psalm 119:152

July 04, 2020

Long have I known from your testimonies that you have founded them forever.

All creation exists within the framework of Your Law.

Man talks about the law of gravity but has no understanding that gravity is but a facet, a physical revelation, of the beauty of the Law of God.

Psalm 119:150

July 02, 2020

They draw near who persecute me with evil purpose; they are far from your law.

Lord, keep me from the sin of distrust. Keep me focused on Your word and trusting You in all things.

Forgive me for not completely trusting You and Your Word, for insisting on “dipping my toe in the water” to test the temperature. When will I learn to dive in and find that the water is very swim-able as You have promised?

Psalm 119:148, 149

July 01, 2020

Psalm 119:148,

My eyes are awake before the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promise.

Lord, that this were true. I fail when awake during the night and am anxious to get back to sleep.

Help me, Lord, to remember to ask You who and what I am to be praying for, to seek Your guidance in using that time for Your Kingdom.

Psalm 119:149

Hear my voice according to your steadfast love; O LORD, according to your justice give me life.

If You love never fails, and it does not; if Your justice is perfect, and it is, then I have no reason not to accept the life You give me, and I do not--except for my own self-will.

Psalm 119:145, 146

June 29, 2020

Psalm 145

With my whole heart, I cry; answer me, O LORD! I will keep your statutes.

Lord, it is only when I am willing to cry with my whole heart, not reserving any portion for myself, giving You total control that You answer.

Help me, Lord, to uncover those hidden preserves, expose them to the fierce wrath of Your love and cauterize them with Your Glory.

Psalm119:146

I call to you; save me, that I may observe your testimonies.

Keep me, Lord, from falling away into despair and self-pity for it is only when I live in trust and faith that I can see Your promises revealed in me and to me.

Psalm 119:137-144

June 28, 2020

Righteous are you, O LORD, and right are your rules. You have appointed your testimonies in righteousness and in all faithfulness. My zeal consumes me, because my foes forget your words. Your promise is well tried, and your servant loves it. I am small and despised, yet I do not forget your precepts. Your righteousness is righteous forever, and your law is true. Trouble and anguish have found me out, but your commandments are my delight. Your testimonies are righteous forever; give me understanding that I may live.

Again, Lord, I am reminded of the consistency of Your Law. Like a beautiful mosaic fits together, tile by tile to present a magnificent picture, so your Law, word by word builds a consistent panorama of life lived according to the Kingdom of God.

And then, You have provided the gift of the Holy Spirit to guide me in that life. It is not only consistent but complete.
