It is important that we ask the Lord, our God to be our teacher. This way, we will know the path that is right and take it. As God teaches us, our thoughts will be upon Him and not the world. Even, His ways will become our own ways over time. This way we will keep God’s statutes until the end of this life and the next. Ask God for understanding that is far beyond your own. Be known as someone who is a seeker of God and also one that is open to telling others the good news. Learning from our King and doing as He says should come naturally and never be forced upon us. Observing God’s standards for mankind should be something we do out of respect and admiration toward the God of the heavens. We love Him so much as to walk in His ways, for He is our delight. David wrote, “teach me, O Lord, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end. Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart. Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight.” (Psalm 119:33-35)
Our eyes and ears should be open to the Lord at all times and in all places. When God delivers His message to people, we should listen to them also. These are those who speak through God and are influenced by the Holy Spirit. When we seek God and His righteousness, coveting other things will become less and less, until it is a thing of the past. What we gain and achieve in this life apart from Christ is all vanity. Therefore, we ask God to be a part of our everyday walk. To allow God to lead You in His footsteps, and to establish us according to His Words in scripture. This will lead you on a path that saves. In doing this, we become devoted to God, for the fear of God is in us. Lastly, David wrote, “incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness. Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way. Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear.” (Psalm 119:36-38) These psalms speak volumes into our lives. Each verse is able to lead us to God as we read and obey them. Praise the Lord. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that more people will be found seeking You on a daily basis. This life is too short to waste it through vanity. So many people know the path they should take, but unfortunately, live out their own lives without You. It is as if I can see these people that have died and are now in hell. Oh the grief, pain, and regret they are feeling right now. They had You in their clutches, but would not give into it and instead chose what the world offered. Surely, Your ways are greater than gold, for it cannot be destroyed or rust over time. For this reason, I’d rather store up treasures in heaven, instead of have luxuries in this life. It is better to give the money I have to those who are in need. It is better to preach the gospel and be hated by people than to conform to the world and be famous. You told us, Jesus, that we would be persecuted because of Your Name and our belief in You. This has come true these many years while in the harvest. So many people hate me because of my devotion to sharing Your good news. But it is worth it. I love You more than anything God. Amen.
