“You are good and do good; teach me Your statutes. The arrogant have forged a lie against me; with all my heart I will observe Your precepts. Their heart is covered with fat, but I delight in Your law.” (Psalm 119:68-69)
The Lord is always good. Never forget this simple truth. In times of adversity and when things are not proceeding in ways that make sense to you, the Lord is still good. What He has promised is that everything will work for His glory. Learn His statutes and walk in them. Do not believe the lies of the arrogant who have forged a plot for your demise. Though you be confused, trust that God is always good.
Lord, clear the fat from my heart that I would see through the nonsense of this age of sin. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I would now and forever hold fast to Your Word. Lead me into the truth of eternity. O Lord, You are good and Your ways are eternal. Lead me in the eternal way and teach me to practice Your goodness now and forever that I would abide in You.
Jesus, You promised that if I abide in You and You in me I would bear fruit. Lead me in the way You have established that I would walk this day learning Your statutes and precepts. Help me to always see in the way You have established, the way of everlasting life. Keep my eyes upon You that I would always hold fast to the truth of what You have revealed from the beginning. Amen.
