Daily D – Psalm 119:133
Psalm 119:133 Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me. (NIV)
Everybody struggles with something. Seek God in the struggle to exchange a moment’s pleasure for a lifetime of satisfaction.
There was a day when a first ten-mile run came to an end.
There was a moment when an intensive professional examination was completed after hours in front of a computer terminal.
There was a walk across a stage in academic regalia bearing testimony to books read, papers written, and discussions of extraordinary depth.
There is a shining moment ahead for all who punch sin in the face and choose God’s path, God’s provision, and God’s better gifts.
Here is a prayer for today: “Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me.”
I will seek God’s rule and reign in my moments of struggle.
Our Father, thank you for providing better for me than anything sin promises. Your gifts bring the deepest and most lasting satisfaction. Sin brings shame and regret. Empower me at every moment to walk away from sin’s enticements in exchange for joy enduring. Amen.
