“I hate the two-faced, but I love Your clear-cut revelation. You’re my place of quiet retreat; I wait for Your Word to renew me. Get out of my life, evildoers, so I can keep my God’s commands. Take my side as You promised; I’ll live then for sure. Don’t disappoint all my grand hopes. Stick with me and I’ll be all right; I’ll give total allegiance to Your definitions of life. Expose all who drift away from Your sayings; their casual idolatry is lethal. You reject earths wicked as so much rubbish; therefore I lovingly embrace everything You say. I shiver in awe before You; Your decisions leave me speechless with reverence.” —Psalm 119:113-120 (MSG)
Devotional Thought for Today:
We leave no room in our lives for hypocrisy but pursue passionately after the perfect revelation of the Word. As we set ourselves apart to seeking God quietly, His Word will renew us. We should cast out the influence of evil people in our lives in order to concentrate on God’s instructions daily. As God takes His stand to be by our side, according to His promises we will experience abundant life, and will not be disappointed in our hope. As the presence of God abides with us, our lives will have clear definition in Him. God will soon expose the wicked and reject them as we lovingly embrace God’s eternal Word. We continue to revere our God because of the amazing decisions He makes on our behalf.
