Scripture: from verse 14
In righteousness you shall be established…
Observation: God is talking about the heritage of His people, which includes peace and wealth and stability and knowledge and righteousness.
This week God and I have been talking about faith some more, and some of my thoughts seemed to really click into place in a way that works for me. The following day, I kept getting these thoughts about how the earlier revelations were stupid and not as powerful as I thought and it couldn’t be that simple and and and…. Eventually I caught it and realized that Satan was attempting to steal what I’d learned. He’s a liar and a thief and it’s only to be expected.
I know that I can get things wrong. I know that I can be misled by my own pride or fear or desire for life to be easy. But God promises to establish me in righteousness. He promises to correct me when I get it wrong. I don’t have to let the fear of missing the mark prevent me from taking a shot in the first place.
All I have to do is keep asking for the truth. And kick Satan out of my head, because he’s not allowed to be there.
Application: Keep asking for the truth
Prayer: Lord, I praise you because you are the Source of Truth. Thank you for keeping me safe, for keeping my feet from slipping and establishing me in righteousness. Help me to keep asking for truth. Amen.
