What a wonderful devotion this morning. How is your walk with God this morning or at this time in your life? I am deeply encouraged by this morning’s devotion as it speaks to my heart. The great Promiser has given us these great words in Psalm 119. No matter what is going on in your life right now the bible tells us so many promises that God has made to us and we must remember these words that give us hope, as stated in verse 49.
Psalm 119 is full of prayers that I hope we will all remember and call on our Lord to help us with daily.
V. 11- Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I may not sin against You.
V. 15- I will meditate on your precepts, and contemplate Your ways.
V. 18- Open my eyes, that I may see Wondrous things from your law.
V. 27- Make me understand the way of Your precepts so shall I meditate on Your wonderful works.
V. 29- Remove from me the way of lying, and grant me Your law graciously.
V. 37- Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things and revive me in Your way.
V. 98- You, through your commandments, make me wiser than my enemies… V. 104 Through your precepts I get understanding.
May we remember constantly the promises that God has given us and continually take them to the throne. Spurgeon writes, do not plead anything else, but go to God over and over again with this – “Lord, thou hast said it, do as Thou hast said.”
It is not on our merit, but it is God who will remove our iniquities and transgressions. All we can do is to ask God to pardon us and He will. He has already forgiven us and sent His son Jesus to pay the ultimate price. There are days I’m sure that we feel apart from God, when we feel we have not followed Him or loved Him with everything that is within us. We may feel that we can not come to Him because of a sin that is too dark that all we want to do is run away from Him in the opposite direction. The good news, we are all sinners and it is not a matter of if, but when these times may happen. My prayer today is that we remember these promises, “Return unto Me, and I will return unto you;” “For a small moment have I forsaken thee, but with great mercies will I gather thee.” Amen
