Fix your eyes upon the Lord. By so doing, you will not walk in the ways of wickedness, but in His righteousness. If you ever feel like you have become a slave to sin, then change your environment, while giving God ample time in prayer and Bible study each day. Then He will use you in His kingdom and also give you strength to overcome every temptation. As we are blessed and protected from the enemy, remember to give God thanks. The same goes for all blessings from the Lord, give Him thanks. Lift Him up in praise. If you have a voice to sing, sing unto the Lord and delight in Your King. David wrote, “O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory. Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early. I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.” (Psalm 108:1-3)
David continued and said, “For thy mercy is great above the heavens: and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds. Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth; That thy beloved may be delivered: save with thy right hand, and answer me.” (Psalm 108:4-6) Remember that God’s mercy is for us. The fact that we are thinking about God, while in our sinful state, means that God’s mercy is for us still. His mercy endures forever. Those who seek His face in prayer and supplication will know of His forgiveness firsthand. As we pray, God unfolds his wisdom unto us willingly. This is the real truth that we should be seeking after often. Give God glory and exalt Him above people. The Lord reigns supreme. He is our deliverer, even to save us from all our sins. Come unto Jesus today and allow Him to deliver you. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, the generation we live in is far from You. The people are not seeking Your hand, but whatever fulfills the lusts of their flesh. Thankfully, there are many that do know You and You know them. These are those who walk in Your righteousness, for You are with them. As we are Your shining lights, Your kingdom is growing and people are repenting of their sins. Lord, it is my prayer that more people forsake their evil ways and come to You in all their confessions. Give unto them a clean heart and pure hands. Our life is incapable of this on our own, but only when the Holy Spirit is with us. Lord, lead us to what is true so that we may walk on the path that leads to eternal life in heaven. We need Your strength to overcome our weaknesses and find true deliverance from temptation. Thank You for delivering me. I love You, Jesus. Amen.
