"Staying on Track with God and His Word" - Tuesday, May 17th
How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping it according to Your word. With all my heart I have sought You; do not let me wander from Your commandments. Your word I have treasured in my heart, that I may not sin against You. Psalm 119:9-11
Today's thoughts from today's verse:
Today’s Scripture speaks of a young man keeping his way pure by keeping it according to God’s Word. This is true for anyone who wants be all that God has in mind for them. There is no truly pure, good, healthy life apart from the authoritative instructions of God’s Word. The Psalmist reveals that he is already on the path of devotion to God and his Word with these words, “With all my heart I have sought You; do not let me wander from Your commandments.” The Psalmist is one who is seeking God with all his heart and fully following his ways and he greatly desires to stay on this path. His simple prayer to God is, “do not let me wander.” Getting on track with devotion to God and his Word is just the beginning. Staying on track with God and his Word is life time pursuit. Having a heart that treasures God’s Word and staying on track with it is essential. Answering our prayer that we do not wander, is a prayer God delights to answer.
Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:
Lord, I join the Psalmist in his prayer, “do not let me wander from Your commandments.” I am on the path of devotion to you and your Word and I want to stay on track. Lord, I do treasure your Word and I do want it to be that I do not sin against you. So, help me go forward living fully for you for the long run. Amen!
