It’s True!

Psalm 119:160 – “All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.”

Do you want to know something amazing about God? Okay, here it is: Everything that God says is true. Everything! There is no hint of exaggeration with the Almighty. When He describes streets of gold in heaven, He means it. The streets will be pure gold. When He says that He separates our sins as far as the east is from the west, He means it. And, when He says that He loves you just the way you are but that He isn’t content to leave you that way, He means that to. In a world where people parse words, hold back words, and all too often tell lies, God’s truth telling is refreshing and awe inspiring.

Dear God,

Thank You that there is no sense of pretense or malice within You. You are truth. You don’t have one ounce of deceit in You. Thank You for Your impecible character, and help us to reflect that to the world around us.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.

A New Week

Psalm 119:159 – “See how I love your precepts; preserve my life, O LORD, according to your love.”

I love Sundays! Today was a long day, but a good one. How awesome it was to be surrounded by my brothers and sisters in Christ throughout most of the day. As I read today’s verse I think about days like this. David cried out that he loved God’s precepts. I do too. His law is so good. They preserve our lives. And, they make life something that can be lived to the full.

As you go into a new week, praise God for who He is. Tell Him what you most need right now. Ask Him to use you in what He wants to accomplish this week. Commit to letting Him have control in your day, your week, this year. He wants to do great things through you. Let Him have control.

Dear God,

We ask You to take control. We invite Your Spirit to fill our lives. Use us to make an impact on this world for You. Give us the strength to follow You wherever You lead.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.
