“How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping it according to Your word. With all my heart I have sought You; do not let me wander from Your commandments. Your word I have treasured in my heart, that I may not sin against You.” (Psalm 119:9-11)
The Lord is good and has given us the proper boundaries that govern how life is to be lived. Remain within the boundaries of the Lord – His commandments – and you will remain in the place of safety. Wander beyond the borders and there will be trouble. Keep the Lord’s Word and you will know the safety and security of the godly life. Remain in His covenant and live in the goodness of the Lord.
Lord, this world is filled with trials and travails. Guide me through the morass of sin that fills this world to learn how to keep Your statutes. You have provided all that is needed, most especially Your grace to enable me to journey through this life and remain in Your goodness. Help me, O Lord, to seek first Your kingdom and righteousness knowing that all else that is needed will be provided.
Lord Jesus, You have come to set the captives free. Free me from the bondage of sin which is death. Guide me along right paths for Your name’s sake that I would grow in grace and abound in Your likeness. Do not let me wander from You, but hold me close now and forever. May my heart be turned toward You in all things and my actions reflect Your presence in my life. Amen.
