I guess my soul is not dead if it can be revived…right?

Salvation  |  November 29

Behold, I long for Your precepts; revive me in Your righteousness.

Let Your mercies come also to me, O LORD– your salvation according to Your word.

So shall I have an answer for him who reproaches me, for I trust in Your word.

And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, for I have hoped in Your ordinances.

So shall I keep Your law continually, forever and ever.

My soul faints for Your salvation, but I hope in Your word.

My eyes fail from searching Your word, saying, “When will You comfort me?”

Psalm 119:40-44, Psalm 119:81-82

Father, this first verse says “revive me in Your righteousness.” How Father, can we be revived, except to have been alive at one time. Father, we know the answer; we are all made alive in Jesus and Your word is written on the heart of every person. We sometimes withdraw from You, even for prolonged periods, but here we learn that revival awaits.

Help us this day to cast aside the sins of the past and to look to You for the strength to be the kind of person You have asked us to be. Let us perceive and focus on what can be instead of what was.

Father, take not the word from our mouths as a result of our reluctance to serve You, but instead, fill our mouths with a witness of Your love, Your forgiveness, Your kindness and gentleness, this day. Oh that our eyes failed us from diligently searching Your word. We truly know nothing of eternal value, apart from You. In Jesus’ Holy name, we pray, amen.
