I posted a small portion of this on my Facebook page, and thought I would share and elaborate some more on it here.
I flipped open my Bible: “Psalm 139 sounds good”. Little did I know, I have “circled” certain Scriptures in this Bible, that sits in a specific room in my house. It’s almost like I have never seen this particular verse before, but… I have. Tonight, I have been feeling like I do not truly make a difference. Easy to feel that way though, right? We all get there. I know, we are closer to Christ’s coming. We have all the signs showing us this. Now is the time to hide God’s Word in our hearts, while we still can! That is the best thing we could be doing with our free time. Committing His Word to memory!
It applies to me in my circumstances, it applies to you in yours, it applies to every single one of us. This is one of those verses that we *should* be committing to memory. Something special happens, when we hide God’s Word in our hearts. With the way our country is going (we hear it all on the news), we should make more of a diligent effort to commit to memorize as much of God’s Word while we still can! This is a Scripture that holds great meaning for us!
Even there your hand shall lead me, and
your right hand shall hold me. (Psalm 139:10)
As scary as it is to know where our world is going, we need to be prepared, vigilant, and as ready as possible. As we ready ourselves just as a bride does for her wedding day, let us immerse ourselves in His Word and Presence! Let us pour His love on others, as we learn how to live day-to-day. Not entirely sure what that will look like, but it will be different depending upon our circumstances. God is good! He will show us! Let us be about God’s purposes and the calling He has given us for our lives. Be immersed in the Word.
What is really encouraging is Psalm 46:10. It adds onto Psalm 139:10.
Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by
every nation. I will be honored throughout the world. Psalm 46:10
Despite the fact that there is a roaring lion (the devil) seeking someone to devour, I know who wins. There is this huge spiritual battle many of us forget about, but it is ongoing right now (see Ephesians 6:10-18). But, we know who wins. God wins. God gets the victory! We remain vigilant and trusting Him, because we know what happens. God has already given us the answers. He has given us everything for life and godliness. Keep immersing in His Word!
