“With Your very own hands You formed me; now breathe Your wisdom over me so I can understand You. When they see me waiting, expecting Your Word, those who fear You will take heart and be glad. I can see now, God, that Your decisions are right; Your testing has taught me what’s true and right. Oh, love me—and right now! —hold me tight! Just the way You promised. Now comfort me so I can live, really live; Your revelation is the tune I dance to. Let the fast-talking tricksters be exposed as frauds; they tried to sell me a bill of goods, but I kept my mind fixed on Your counsel. Let those who fear You turn to me for evidence of Your wise guidance. And let me live whole and holy, soul and body, so I can always walk with my head held high.” —Psalm 119:73-80 (MSG)
Devotional Thought for Today:
God has formed us with His own creative hands and has breathed on us the breath of life. Day by day, as we cry unto Him, He breathes His wisdom over us. When God’s people observe us waiting daily on Him to hear His voice, they are encouraged. God’s decisions are right; His testing exposes our weak areas and brings us closer to the truth. Since God’s promise is to love us, we need to draw near to Him and allow Him to pour His love on us. Praise God, we are not led by the trickery of the wicked, but we dance to the tune of His revelation. Therefore, we are made whole and are holy.
