Daily D – Psalm 119:160

The very essence of your words is truth; all your just regulations will stand forever. PSALM 119:160 (NLT)

_____________________________________________________________________________

The British New Wave group Naked Eyes released a song in 1983 entitled Promises, Promises. Inside the lyrics you find words so appropriate in every election season: 

You made me promises, promises
Knowing I’d believe
Promises, promises
You knew you’d never keep

Politicians and their parties are blank slates upon which we write our hopes and dreams. Some of us have seen enough elections to see through the smoke and mirrors and sleight of hand. Some of us hopefully, gullibly believe what is spoken at campaign rallies and in those incessant television ads. 

The good news is we can find words that stand the tests of time. We simply need to know where to look. Do not seek them in a newspaper. Theirs is another agenda. Do not seek them in party platforms. Do not seek them in most academic settings. God’s words of truth and life are found in one robust compendium called the Bible. 

God’s truth is true for all people everywhere in every age. It does not change season by season like political correctness. No one can build a certain future on the shifting sands of conventional wisdom. 

Truth liberates. It provides dependable guidance. It protects from harm. It makes possible beauty and wonder, freedom and joy. 

You and I need more truth. We require more stability. Our Father in heaven provides all we need in the pages of the Bible. Do not look at the Bible through the lens of this age, instead, look at this age, and every other, through the pages of the Bible. 

_____________________________________________________________________________

I will seek God’s truth day by day.

Our Father, I choose the simple beauty of your enduring truth over every competing claim. Your words of truth and life endure the tests of time. They are rock for us to stand upon. They free us from misleading and manipulative speech. Give us the disciplined consideration of your truth day by day and moment by moment. Amen.

Daily D – Ezekiel 43:1-5

Ezekiel 43:1-5 He led me to the gate, the one that faces east, and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice sounded like the roar of a huge torrent, and the earth shone with his glory. The vision I saw was like the one I had seen when he came to destroy the city, and like the ones I had seen by the Chebar Canal. I fell facedown. The glory of the Lord entered the temple by way of the gate that faced east. Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

Daily D – Ezekiel 37:3

Ezekiel 37:3 Then he said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I replied, “Lord God, only you know.”

Daily D – Ezekiel 36:26-27

Ezekiel 36:26, 27 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. I will place my Spirit within you and cause you to follow my statutes and carefully observe my ordinances.”

Daily D – Psalm 40:6-8

Psalm 40:6-8
You do not delight in sacrifice and offering;
you open my ears to listen.
You do not ask for a whole burnt offering or a sin offering. Then I said, “See, I have come;
in the scroll it is written about me.
I delight to do your will, my God,
and your instruction is deep within me.”

Daily D – Psalm 39:4-5

Psalm 39:4, 5
“LORD, make me aware of my end
and the number of my days
so that I will know how short-lived I am.
In fact, you have made my days just inches long,
and my life span is as nothing to you.
Yes, every human being stands as only a vapor.”
Selah
