Psalm 9:7  But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment.

The daily persecutions, troubles and trials that we face here on earth can wear on our spirit, mind and even our physical being.  We sometimes find ourselves ready to just quit, walk off, and leave it all.  But where are we going??  At this time, there is nowhere to go.  We must stay really close to the Lord.  We must walk daily within His guiding voice.  When we wander out of the provided field, we make ourselves prey to the world.  But even in the field we will get tired and weary from time to time.  But in the field, there is refreshment of the Lord!  Praise the Lord for the available refreshment, revival and a recharge for our spirit in the low times.  As life progresses, it seems that the saint of God gets even more weary.  The miles are building up.  The wear and tear of the physical body is showing itself.  If we are not careful, we will begin to think that the Lord has forgotten about us.  We must be mindful that He said; “I will never leave the nor forsake thee”.  As we physically look around at the immorality of society and the liberal direction of the churches, it seems as though the Lord has lost His grip.  It appears that He has also grown weary and left it all.  BUT… He has not left, forgotten, nor has He lost His grip.  The Lord God Almighty is still in complete control of His creation.  The world is under His complete authority.  Much of this world may not recognize His control, but He is behind the scenes calling the shots.  He is taking care of business.  Child of God, He tells us in His Word that this world will become wicked and immoral in the last days.  Our text verse for today is one of many that remind us that He is and will always be the God Almighty in control.  The liberals of this society think they have the controlling hand.  They are convinced that they will overcome good with evil.  They press on with a persuasion of conquer.  BUT… the Lord shall endure forever.  There is a day, soon to come, that the Lord will step out on a cloud and call all the saved home.  He will then open seals and vials of judgement upon this sinful world.  And then there will be a judgment day for the lost.  Oh, it may appear that the liberal evil has taken control, but might I remind us today that He hath prepared His throne for judgment!  So, hang on Christian!  Press on another day.  Stay with the truth of our Lord.  Don’t back off or back up.  Sail on!  Sail on for the glory of God!  He is worthy to be followed.  In the end, our Lord will be shown on the throne.  He is God!  He is Lord!  And He is soon to be declared to the world as King.  Child of God, don’t allow weariness to fool you or discourage you.  It just means we are close to home.  Don’t allow those that are quitting to detour you.  Stay the course.  Walk daily within His guiding voice.  Hey, in the end we win!  If we quit now, we will be much ashamed in the end.  I would rather suffer belittlement now than to be ashamed in the end.   2Thess. 3:13  But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.  Amen.  Phil. 3:13-14  Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,  [14]  I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.  Phil. 1:6  Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.  Press on saint of God!  It won’t be long now.

Psalm 126:3 The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.

Psalm 103:2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.  On a daily basis we must remind ourselves of the eternal hand of God that protects us and provides for us every moment of every day.  As we deal with the storms and trials of this earthly life we tend to overlook the true blessings of the Lord.  It is easy for us to place our focus on these temporary issues and allow them to dampen our fire and to darken our light.  We must be attentive to our attitude.  As a born again child of God we are blessed beyond measure.  Just the benefit of His protection is enough to praise Him eternally.  But then we ponder upon the provisions He has bestowed upon our lives.  And then we must consider the position we have in Christ.  Oh my soul!  Notice the Psalmist mentions in Ps. 103 that it is his soul that cannot forget the benefits from the Lord.  It is the soul that knows the great blessings from the Lord.  You see friend, it is our soul that is saved and our soul that is eternally safe in the arms of God.  It is the soul that is reaping from this position in Christ.  Even though the flesh enjoys and is among the many benefits of the plan, it is not the direct recipient.  It is our soul that is the true receiver of benefits and blessings.  The flesh will return to the dust from which it came.  It is deteriorating.  It is temporary.  But my soul!!  My soul shall live eternally!  The future of my soul is bright.  The future of the saved soul is out of this world.  So my friend, even though we do have to live in this fleshly body for now, we must be careful not to allow it to cast a shadow over the real joy within our soul.  Yes, we are living and operating within a flesh driven society, but don’t take your eyes off of the prize to come.  Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.  The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.  Amen

Psalm 12:1  Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.

This verse is a cry from the Psalmist David unto the Lord.  It is a cry of desperation.  David is experiencing something that has alarmed him greatly.  He is not referring to being bothered by the lost world.  He is not overcome by the wicked at this point.  But rather, he is overwhelmed at the falling away of those that are servants of the Lord.  Notice his words of address; “Help, LORD”.  He realizes this is a problem beyond his ability of repair.  He realizes that only God can intervene now.  So, what is the issue?  Notice he makes it clear that “the godly man ceaseth” and “the faithful fail”.  Oh my friend, are we not living in these exact days?!  As a child of God, we can look around and see so many of those who were once servants of God, but now they have fallen away.  Verse 2 reveals the root of the problem.  Psalm 12:2  They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.  That word “vanity” simply means worldliness.  Oh my dear friend, it seems as though many servants of the Lord are falling away from grace by the dozens and indulging in the entertainment of the world.  Notice verse 2 states that their heart is double.  They are attempting to draw peace from the world and from the Lord.  They are wallowing in a temporary state of peace of the flesh.  The world cannot offer eternal peace for the soul.  It can only offer temporary peace for the flesh.  Satan drizzles his honey over the carnal things of the world as an attractant.  So many Christians are sliding away from the spiritual walk of grace and indulging in the bait of Satan’s trap.  The question is this; why did they fall away?  The answer is simple.  They never were all the way in.  Their service was always with one foot in and one foot out.  They were busy serving the Lord with one hand and the other hand was hanging out the window stroking the world.  They were half timers.  Now, many times we refer to those that attend church sparsely as half timers.  But I must say that many of those who are at church all of the time are half timers.  They may be here full time in the physical form but not in spiritual form.  They come to church with the yearning to get out.  They read their Bible with a yearning to finish.  They pray shallow and short.  These are those who, if adjustments are not made, will fall out.  These will fall out over some type of offense.  My friend, if you are offended at some correctional truth it is because you too are hanging out the window.  One little bobble and you too will be laying out in the yard of the world.  Psalm 119:165  Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.  Oh dear friend, don’t be a half timer.  Determine to be a full timer!  Prioritize the things of God in your life.  Commit your life to the service of the Lord Jesus, the one who saved your soul from Hell.  Without Him you would be forever lost.  But He had favor upon your soul and saved you by His marvelous grace!  Friend, don’t cheat on God.  Don’t treat Him like a spare tire or a get-out-of-jail-free card.  Determine to put Him first in all areas of your life.  If we do this, then all these other things of the world will fall into place.  He gives us this promise.  Matthew 6:33  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.  Dear friend, don’t be a causality of the faith.  Determine to be all in all the time.  Amen.

Romans 12:11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;  

Here we have a verse that instructs us as Christians on character building.  Dear friend, character matters.  Sometimes we are guilty of making decisions selfishly and overlooking the damages our decisions can make or has made to our personal character.  Character directly affects our personal witness.  If we mar our witness then we will be ineffective in showing the joy of truth that is in the Lord Jesus.  Sadly, once we damage our character it is very, very hard to regain that respect that we lost.  I’m sure you, as well as myself have many times in our life that we would like to rewind and redo.  We can all think of those past actions and words that we sure regret to this very day.  But unfortunately our words and actions are like toothpaste out of the tube, they cannot be put back where they came from.  Our verse is a stern command that we must follow in order to keep our character clean and acceptable to the Lord.  First it mentions that we should not be slothful in business.  In other words, be responsible.  We must be responsible to our responsibilities.  Our word “slothful” means to be tardy in responsibility.  Don’t overlook the importance of your job or position whether it be your position at work or even your position at the church.  Maybe your position is just a laborer or maybe you even own the business, don’t be slothful at your responsibilities.  Be up and at it!  Even our position at the church should be taken serious.  Don’t slack at your commitment to the Lord.  Our verse mentions our service to the Lord.  So many ministries of our day are no longer a ministry but a nuisance to the community because the people are power seekers of their position instead of servants!  If you have a position then get it done right and on time.  Your character relies on you doing right.  Stop blaming everything else for your sorriness and do right.  We must make Jesus look good.  Bad character gives Him a bad name.  Slothfulness ruins our witness as a responsible Christian.  If your lost neighbor sees that church attendance is not important to you then he will think that salvation must not be as important as you verbally claimed.  Also our verse commands that we should be fervent in spirit.  Don’t serve with a chip on your shoulder.  Ask the Lord to remove strife from your heart and be happy in your service to the Lord.  My, my what a verse.  Lord, help me to fulfill my responsibilities with joy and ferverance of spirit. Amen!

Psalm 19:14  Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Our verse for today is one of familiarity.  We all have quoted it and read it many times.  It is a powerful prayer that the Psalmist spoke to the Heaven Father.  It is a desire from David’s heart.  The Lord printed it in His Word for our benefit.  We too should pray this prayer daily.  Let’s look at it together.  He first request is that the Lord guides him in the words of his mouth.  This could mean the normal conversation of his day and it could also be the words he would utter to the Lord in prayer.  He has asked the Lord to guide his words in a way that they would be acceptable in the sight of God.  May I quickly point out that these words are not the words that have been declared clean and right by man.  This is the words of conversation led of the Lord.  I must say, I have spoken many things many times to the Lord that were acceptable to Him but could not have been accepted by man.  What we personally talk to the Lord about is powerful and personal conversation.  So, David could have possibly been referring to his conversation with God Himself.  We too should desire an open conversation with the Lord daily.  Open up to Him.  He knows all anyway.  We must be open and honest with the Lord if we expect help and guidance.  Next, we see that the Psalmist request that the Lord guide him in his meditation.  This is a very important part of a personal relationship with the Lord.  We must make time to sit with God.  This is the times that we conversate with the Lord and not an audible word is heard.  David asked the Lord to guide even his thoughts.  He wished for acceptable thoughts.  An uncontrolled mind will be out of control.  It is scary to know the levels of wickedness that can flow through the mind that is not guided by the Lord.  We must maintain a holy and clean thought process by continually asking the Lord to purge our mind.  Sometimes our mind may need purging hourly or maybe even momentarily.  It depends on what kind of attack we are experiencing from the enemy.  We must plead the blood of Jesus over our mind!  Only the power of the redeeming blood of Jesus can fix the messed-up mind.  And then we see that David praises the Lord for who He is in his life.  He acknowledges him as his LORD, strength and redeemer.  My friend, we must determine Him as our LORD, our only strength and eternal redeemer.  Without Him we are nothing but out of control flesh.  Without Him we are hopelessly lost.  He is our everything.  Determine to put Him first in all today.  Plead the cleansing blood of the Lord Jesus over all aspects of your life.  He is LORD!  Amen.    

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
Eph 2:8.
