You reveal the path of life to me, in Your presence is abundant joy; in Your right hand are eternal pleasures. Psalm 16:11
How happy is the one You choose. Psalm 65:4
May the Lord be praised! Day after day, He bears our burdens; God is our salvation. Psalm 68:19
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14
I put my hope in You, Lord; You will answer, Lord my God. Psalm 38:15
Our help is in the name of the Lord, the maker of heaven and the earth. Psalm 124:8
For they did not take the land by their sword--their arm did not bring them victory---but by Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your face, for You were pleased with them. Psalm 44:3
And as a reminder of how I should live:
Search for the LORD and for His strength; seek His face always. 1 Chronicles 16:11
I will live with integrity of heart in my house. I will not set anything godless before my eyes. Psalm 101:2-3
A description of the godly
Lord, who can dwell in Your tent: Who can live on Your Holy Mountain? The one who lives honestly practices righteousness, and acknowledges the truth in his heart--who does not slander with his tongue, who does not harm his friend or discredit his neighbor, who despises the one rejected by the LORD, but honors those who fear the LORD, who keeps his word whatever the cost, who does not lend his money at interest or take a bribe against the innocent--the one who does these things will never be moved. Psalm 15:1-5
Don't you just love that title?
The other thing that struck me in my reading this week was that David inquired of the LORD. I am fascinated at the thought of having such a comfortable relationship with the LORD that I would automatically inquire of Him just like I would a trusted friend.
So David did exactly as God commanded him. 1 Chronicles 14:16
Not only did David ask, but he obeyed. Do I ask? Do I follow through whether I like the answer or not? Hard questions with ugly answers sometimes. I am grateful that my God is patient with me. And that He knows me. And knows what I need. Peace be with you this week, my friends.
