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.

Deuteronomy 8:12-18 When you eat and are full, and build beautiful houses to live in, and your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold multiply, and everything else you have increases, be careful that your heart doesn’t become proud and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. He led you through the great and terrible wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you. He fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ancestors had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’ but remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
Deuteronomy 1:2, 3 It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir. In the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses told the Israelites everything the Lord had commanded him to say to them.
