Must I seek God daily, even moment by moment?

Salvation  |  December 17

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.

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. In Jesus’ Holy name, we pray, amen.

February 28, 2021 Should we expect to suffer as a result of our witness? February 27, 2021 When you meet Jesus, will He say, welcome friend... February 26, 2021 Private prayer, a compelling prelude to God's constant presence February 25, 2021 Love God and hate our neighbor...not an option. February 24, 2021 Do you mean that God knew whether I would choose to love Him? February 23, 2021 Did you say enduring persecution is a good thing? February 22, 2021 God's grace and mercy will turn my fear to joy! February 21, 2021 How do you achieve "goodness"? February 20, 2021 God never moves away from us...He seeks us. February 19, 2021 True love, a basis for courage, now and then.
