Daily Devotional from Pastor Mary 7-23-20

Psalm 119:129-133 (TPT) I Long to Obey You
Your marvelous words are living miracles;
no wonder I long to obey everything you say.
Break open your word within me until revelation-light shines out!
Those with open hearts are given insight into your plans.
I open my mouth and inhale the word of God
because I crave the revelation of your commands.
Turn your heart to me, Lord, and show me your grace
like you do to every one of your godly lovers.
Prepare before me a path filled with your promises,
and don’t allow even one sin to have dominion over me.

When our hearts are open to God’s perspective, it brings revelation of his love and justice to our understanding; in Christ the infinite communes and communicates with the finite. We do not have to guess about sin or the righteousness God requires, we simply need to turn toward God and listen to his Word. From there the Holy Spirit will let us know if repentance and change is necessary. As we obediently turn our hearts toward his ways, he responds by turning his heart toward us. In that moment of obedience and in the power of grace, our paths are filled with the miraculous promises of God for salvation and deliverance. Obedience is actually a set up for spiritual triumph or victory.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for making a way, in Christ, for me to be spiritually triumphant. I rest on the work of the Word within me; so, break the word open and help my life shine for your glory. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
