“O how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day. Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever mine. I have more insight than all my teachers, for Your testimonies are my meditation.” (Psalm 119:97-99)
What are your boundaries? Not the imposition of what other’s might think, but your personal boundaries. The law of the Lord is only as good for you as it becomes personal for you. We often have external cultural norms that guide how we behave, but it is the internal boundaries that count with God. Meditate upon the law of the Lord and allow them to become your boundaries.
Lord, help me to see the conflict between what I say I believe and those things on the inside that truly guide me. Allow my heart to be softened to see the truth. Guide me into reflection that what You say may become who I am. Let me not resist You when I do not resist the world. Through Your Spirit, search me deep within that who I am may become what You are making me to be.
Lord Jesus, You promised a new life. Create in me that new life that sheds itself of this world’s promptings to become what I have always been intended to be. Guide me in the goodness of what has always been true. Lead me in the way of everlasting life. In You, O Lord, is the hope of all people, for only in You can we find our way through the fog of this world. Lead me in meditation this day, O Lord. Amen.
