Monday! Monday! Read Psalm 119:161-176 – Today is a day of completion. We have been delighting in two weekly stanzas of this longest chapter of the bible since July 19, 2021. Beloved, may this accomplishment signify to you the blessing of perseverance. Life has thrown many things at each of us over these weeks and months, yet Gods Word remains our source for truth and refreshment – thank God for our Father in heaven who is far and above all our earthly trials. Truly, “Those who love your instructions have great peace and do not stumble(:165).” Beloved, will you also say YES??? “Yes, I obey your commandments and laws because you know everything I do(:168).” Be encouraged! Our Heavenly Father knows we stumble, yet His mercy meets us as we humbly return. “I have wandered away like a lost sheep, come and find me, for I have not forgotten your commands(:176).” Beloved, may today be a day of thanksgiving, praise and hallelujah! Set aside your circumstances and praise His name.🙌🙏💖👑💖🙏🙌
Monday! Monday! – read Psalm 119:113-128 – These are words of rescue.
I wonder if Elijah had access to them? Could you imagine him in that cave, meditating on, “You are my refuge and my shield; your word is my source of hope…. Lord, sustain me as you promised, that I may live! Do not let my hope be crushed.” (119:114,116) And maybe, these are just the words you need to receive this fine day.
“My eyes strain to see your rescue, to see the truth of your promise fulfilled.” My friends, even if you are not in a trial today, you most certainly will be at some point. Train yourself now to look for rescue. Hold tightly to the truth of the Lord’s promises. Prepare your heart to do what James instructs, “Consider it great joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you experience various trials,” James 1:2
Monday! Monday! Read Psalm 119:65-80 – “I used to wander off until you disciplined me; but now I closely follow your word.” 119:67 The path to maturity is so funny. Arrogance and breaking boundaries seem like the way to declare one’s self… until the conclusion is reached (hopefully), that being constantly disciplined is no way to live. “Now let your unfailing love comfort me, just as you promised me, your servant, ” 119:77. Beloved, which verses in our passage are just for you? There is so much wisdom – rest in it and find your way. 📖⏳🌞⚓🎶🌅📖
