This psalm of David is a prayer for God’s presence and leading. It is the cry of a heart that yearns to know more and more of God. A heart that wants to know and follow his truth. A heart whose hope was not in power or strength of arms, but in God.
Do you have a good reputation among unbelievers? Do they see you as a Christian who is faithful to Christ and is loving and good? Or is the cause of Christ brought into disrepute because of your life and actions? Dare to be different. Don’t fall into the Devil’s trap and be a disgrace to Christ.
As a Christian, there are many things that I am free to do. But I need to ensure that in exercising my freedom I do not become a stumbling block to a weaker brother or sister. The exercise of my freedom should be guided by love.
Would I act any different in my daily life if Jesus were with me in person? As a believer, the Holy Spirit is in me wherever I go and whatever I say. If I would not do something with Jesus, I should not do it with his Spirit. Honor God with your body.
As a believer, building your life on the foundation of Christ, what type of building materials are you using? Are you investing in quality materials, or just getting by with the bare minimum? How you build today will impact your eternity.
