Devotion Psalms #6

 Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation.Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the Lord will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.10 Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.12 For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
Psalms 5:1-12

It’s not easy being a Christian and if anyone says it is I want to see their resume of life. Growing up as a kid I was always told you can’t be lukewarm so either I was out in the world or I was in the church. If I am going to be out in the world then I would be all in and vice versa.

When I was partying, I would take it to the max because I didn’t want to just dabble in it. I was going to be all in “life of the party” and turning it all the way up until I passed out. All that time God was still in the back of my head, but I left him there. We all fall short of the glory of God because life happens “Our Enemies” get the best of us and our biggest enemy is ourselves.

When I finally found myself again it was like running back home. I always knew where I belonged, I just never fully wanted to accept it. I can’t count on my fingers how many times I felt short, but that’s the best part about it God forgives and that’s all that matters. I don’t even want God to forget because I want him to keep showing where I came from. Now that I’m here it’s a fight to stay in this place. My mind wants to tell me to just throw in the towel and place fear back within me. I can’t this time I’ve come too far, so I continue to ask for guidance. God hears the prayers I cry at night because I don’t want to go backward.

It won’t be easy people but fight! put your best foot forward and if it comes to it drag to the finish line. Continue to ask for guidance, pray and fast because the enemy wants to attack you. Don’t give in and don’t give up continue to glorify him and stay joyful and spread the love that God shine through you. God will protect you.
