Daily Devotional from Pastor Mary 1-15-21

Psalm 139:1-4 King David’s song

Lord, you know everything there is to know about me.

You perceive every movement of my heart and soul,
and you understand my every thought before it even enters my mind.
You are so intimately aware of me, Lord.
You read my heart like an open book
and you know all the words I’m about to speak
before I even start a sentence!

Whether we believe in the Lord’s love and salvation or not, God knows everything about every human being. No one can hide anything from the pure omnipresent Light of Truth. God always has a righteous plan for his human creation and he will not stop bringing it forward because he flawlessly works for our restoration and wholeness. We were made in his image, after all and he works to redeem the Truth. When we stoop to deception, painful or not, God raises up Truth to confront and correct us. As King David discovered in his own life, no matter how much power a person may have, Truth eventually comes out and prevails because even though others may be oblivious, God is not mocked (Gal 6:7).

God’s love is pure and he wants more for us than to live as liars. When humans lie, we look like the father of lies—Satan. So, God patiently makes arrangements for humans to have an encounter with Truth. If you find yourself discouraged because you feel Truth has been robbed by the evil work of Satan, rest assure whatever a person sows they will reap. When we build temples of deceit, Truth in time brings a wrecking ball. Your biggest challenge will be choosing to love and trust God in the meantime. Spend your time praying for Truth to rise, continue producing good fruit in your own life, and leave the harvest to God.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for knowing everything about your human creation. You alone know the Truth and motives of our hearts. We pray for our hearts to be in sync with your Spirit of Truth, and we pray for our country and world to not only hunger for the Truth, but for the One who is Truth—Jesus—to be revealed to the world. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
