    God Delights in Truth 

    “Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart.”‭‭Psalm‬ ‭51:6‬ ‭ESV‬‬

    It is amazing to me how much lying goes on in the world, even by people who claim to love Christ. 

    The concept of a “white lie” that doesn’t hurt anyone is evil. A lie is a lie. God hates lies. Lies are of the Devil. Satan is the father of lies. 

    God delights in the truth. Be truthful today in your heart and with your tongue.

    Have Mercy on Me O God 

    “Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin!For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it; you will not be pleased with a burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.”

    ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭51:1-2, 16-17‬ ‭ESV‬‬

    God isn’t interested in our religious rituals. He cares about the heart. He desires our holiness and love. 

    The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit that treasures Christ above all in this world. 

    O God, cleanse me from my sins and create in me a clean heart today.

    Faith 

    “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”Hebrews‬ ‭11:1‬ ‭ESV‬‬

    Some say “Seeing is believing.”

    That is the opposite of faith. Faith is believing in what you can not see. 

    Faith is believing God exists, even though He can not be seen with your eyes. 

    One of the central themes of the Bible is faith. Without faith it is impossible to please God. 

    Trust in Him today.  Put your hope in Him and find rest for your soul.

    Create A Clean Heart In Me 

    “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me.  Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.” (Psalm 51:10-12)
    O Lord, my heart is desperately wicked.  Create a clean heart in me and fill me with your Spirit today.

    God Will Judge with Equity 

    “We give thanks to you, O God; we give thanks, for your name is near. We recount your wondrous deeds. “At the set time that I appoint I will judge with equity. When the earth totters, and all its inhabitants, it is I who keep steady its pillars I say to the boastful, ‘Do not boast,’ and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horn; do not lift up your horn on high, or speak with haughty neck.’””
    ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭75:1-5‬ ‭ESV‬‬
    Give thanks to the Lord and walk in His righteousness today. He will judge all the earth with equity. The deeds of the wicked will be exposed and judged. 

    Lord, may the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in your sight today, my Rock and my Redeemer.
