Keep in Step

Lately, this is the pain on my heart - that the words I pray sound nothing like the words God speaks to me. Should not my prayers sound like those of the saints of old (Psalm 89:5)? Should I not consider "the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith?" (Matthew 23:23) Should I not praise God for who He reveals Himself to be? Should I not sing the same songs as David, a man after God's own heart? (1 Samuel 13:14)

Where else can I turn but the word of God? Still, I struggle with weakness and with sin. When I read, I often neglect to recall what I've just read. When I recite Scripture to myself, I often don't stop to savor the truth the words contain. Often I don't even understand what the words mean! But these weaknesses are opportunities to receive strength from on high.

Moses has said, "Oh, that all the LORD’s people were prophets and that the LORD would put His Spirit upon them!" (Numbers 11:29) and in the mystery of the gospel, the Father has poured out His Spirit upon His people, answering the request of His Son Jesus (John 14:16-18; Acts 2:32-33,37-39). Praise the Lord!

May the Lord "teach me all things" (John 14:26) because of the covenant established in the Lord's blood (Matthew 26:26-29) - "...I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people." Jeremiah 31:33 "Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him." Romans 6:8

רני בת־ציון הריעו ישראל (Zephaniah 3:14)

Psalm 118:15
"The voice of rejoicing and salvation
Is in the tents of the righteous;
The right hand of the LORD does valiantly."
