Courage | October 15
Concerning Your testimonies, I have known of old that You have founded them forever.
Consider my affliction and deliver me, for I do not forget Your law.
Plead my cause and redeem me; revive me according to Your word.
Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek Your statutes.
Great are Your tender mercies, O LORD; revive me according to Your judgments.
Many are my persecutors and my enemies, yet I do not turn from Your testimonies.
I see the treacherous, and am disgusted, because they do not keep Your word.
Father, the Psalmist reminds us that he has known for a long time that Your testimony to us, the Holy Scriptures, will last forever. Father, there is so little in our lives that will last forever. It all seems so transitional as we move through life with constant change ever present. Thank You for being the same, forever.
You, Jesus are our anchor, You plead our cause. What a magnificent truth. Our advocate is the Son of God!
The Psalmist says a person is wicked if they do not seek Your statutes. That is such a harsh statement but please, Father, have it not apply to any of us. Draw us unto You and Your word every day. Grant us Your tender mercies this day We pray in Jesus’ Holy name, amen.
