Read Psalm 119:137-144.
“You are right and You do right, God; Your decisions are right on target. You rightly instruct us in how to live ever faithful to You. My rivals nearly did me in; they persistently ignored Your commandments. Your promise has been tested through and through, and I, Your servant, love it dearly. I’m too young to be important, but I don’t forget what You tell me. Your righteousness is eternally right; Your revelation is the only truth. Even though troubles came down on me hard, Your commands always gave me delight. The way You tell me to live is always right; help me understand it so I can live to the fullest.” —Psalm 119:137-144 (MSG)
Devotional Thought for Today:
God is always right; therefore, His decisions are perfect. If not for God’s protection and favor on us, the enemy’s attacks would have made us fall. The promises of God are tested and tried, and are proven to be faithful; we, His servants, love them wholeheartedly. We remember to obey God’s Word, because it is the only truth. Though troubles come upon us without warning, His Word gives us great comfort and delight. When we live according to God’s revealed Word, we are able to live life to the fullest.
- A PRAYER FOR MY LIFE:
Dear Lord, please help me to understand that Your decisions over my life are always correct.
- A PRAYER FOR THE CHURCH:
Lord, strengthen pastors, ministry leaders and volunteers, and those being called to ministry. I pray for multicultural training opportunities for their personal growth, for finanicial resources to infuse kingdom work—from rural regions to urban hubs—and for intentional, influential disclipleship among youth.
- A PRAYER FOR OUR WORLD:
Lord, let those living in anger and unforgiveness experience encounters with You, Jesus. May those with broken hearts and sadness be filled with hope again. Give happiness and life to those who feel emptiness and sorrow.
