“Deal with thy servant according unto thy mercy, and teach me thy statutes. I am thy servant; give me understanding, that I may know thy testimonies. It is time for thee, Lord, to work: for they have made void thy law. Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.” (Psalm 119:124-127)
Acknowledge that you are a sinner and need God’s mercy. We’ve all done things that we wish we could go back and erase from our life’s history. It is good to be reminded that we have sinned greatly in the sight of God. And this will continue unless we come to Him in all our confessions. We do this in our humility, ready to turn from our wicked ways and to follow Jesus. God’s mercy is for you, but you must come to Jesus on bended knees for this to happen. Ask the Lord, our God, to help you walk apart from the world and in His glorious light. Even now, we are in sin, and need to turn from this mess and to God instead. In saying this, it is important to ask Him to teach You what You should know in this life. That He might give you the necessary wisdom to escape the evil one. We can either be the servant of the Lord or the servant of Satan in this life. Make a choice today, of whom you will follow. Jesus or Satan. Your choices in this life determine what path you are on. Remember that life is short. We don’t know when our life will end. Just know that everything is being written down. This will be opened up to us on the day of judgment.
Today is the day to tell God that You are His servant. Ask Him to come into your life and guide you in every way. Your understanding of the Bible and His Words for mankind will become crystal clear with the Holy Spirit in your life. So ask the Lord God for understanding through prayer and supplication. Ask Him to be Your teacher, that You might know His will and fulfill it also. If you are sincere, then God will do a work in your life that may not have been possible in the past. I am talking about Him opening Your mouth to speak to people. Even His wisdom is unfolded and His plain and precious truths of the Bible are known. There are many individuals that will mock you in these efforts. They don’t think obeying a God they cannot see is important, especially when it comes to His laws for mankind. But don’t give into these evildoers. Instead, allow the Lord to help you be an example to those who are lost. How God’s ways are important and that is why you freely obey Him. It is better to obey God’s commandments then achieve wealth and success in this life. Above anything, I can achieve, being in Your right standing is most important. Amen and amen.
