love the Psalms; reading one a day is a good plan. David really shows his love,
fear of and heart for God in his poetry. In Psalm 139 verses 23 and 24 David
humbles himself before his God and cries out that his heavenly Father would
search his heart for any wickedness and show him how to walk in godliness.
with David, we cannot do this and walk the walk on our own; o how we need God
in our lives. In Romans chapter 2 and verse 15 we learn that our born-again
spirits, hearts or consciences will show us if we are right or wrong, if we
allow the Holy Spirit to illuminate and strengthen our spirits with the word of
God. “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my
name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance,
whatsoever I have said unto you” (John 14:26; KJV).
in the word, ask God to make the word come alive to you (what we call
revelation) by the Holy Spirit as you read and meditate. Allow the spotlight of
God’s word to show you where you need to change so you can draw ever closer to
God. Remember it is not in our own strength but it is God who shows us the way
and empowers us to change and be more like him (Phil 1:6). “Being confident of this
very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until
the day of Jesus Christ” (Phil 1:6). Lord, flood us with your presence, your
Holy Spirit today and have your way in our lives. Be blessed today.
