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 not this flesh that is sovereignly protected and so tenderly provided for. 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. Let’s say we had lunch with a friend today and the owner of the restaurant was our friend’s father. The father blessed us with a free lunch. The free lunch was because we accompanied our friend whose father owned the restaurant. We were blessed by accompaniment. Our flesh benefits from its accompanying our soul. We allow ourselves to get all burdened and bewildered because we tend to look at things from the flesh view. Of course this flesh is in trouble. It 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 1:6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish..

The Lord’s eyes are on all. He sees all at all times, hears all at all times and knows all at all times. He is God Almighty. There is no part-mighty or even half-mighty to Him. He is All-Mighty. Living in today’s time we see all around us the unrighteousness of man. Sin reveals it’s signs of evil and it’s destructive nature on every corner. Thousands upon ten thousands of people are sucked into the vacuum of sin. The saddest to see is those that are trapped in the downward spiral of religious cults and paganism and are blinded to its end destruction. Our verse for today mentions the omnipotence of the Lord. This means He is all knowing. He “knoweth” the way of the righteous. “Knoweth” means He knows our every thought and action at every moment of every day. He knows our daylight works as well as our nighttime works. He knows the works of our awakened hours as well as the works of our sleeping hours. He knows the real us. This is a humbling truth. Knowing He knows all should humble us to seek a more clean life. When was the last time you asked the Lord to guard even your dreams while you slept? We are quick to seek His guidance while we are awake, but what about the actions of the mind while we sleep? He knows all. Nothing is hid from Him. Our verse reminds us that there are no counterfeits that can hide from God. These may fool their friends, their family and even many of those of the faith, but never will they fool the Almighty. Lastly, our verse reminds us that ungodliness will perish. Only righteousness will stand in the judgment. Unrighteousness will burn as dry fodder. Dear friend, seek righteousness today. And tonight, seek righteousness. Godliness is pure and pleasing to the Lord and it delivers joy to those that seek it. He knows all. Amen.

Psalm 19:13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression..

Yesterday we studied on the dangers of secret sins. Secret sins are those sins we attempt to hide from other humans, but the Lord sees all. Our verse today speaks of the sin we tend to broadcast before all. He refers to them as “presumptuous sins”. This means sins of arrogance. The Psalmist pleas with the Lord to keep him from this sin. Arrogance is a sin of pride, self indulgence and self centeredness. A person that has an arrogant attitude is a person that actually is scared of life. They attempt to make themselves appear to be better than everyone else. In reality, they are afraid that they will not be accepted by others. And might I say, a person of arrogance is very annoying. We all have dealt with these people and have all probably been guilty of this sin ourselves. Notice in our verse that he asked the Lord to keep him from the sin of arrogance so that he will not be guilty of what he refers to as the “great transgression”. We must look deeper into the real meaning of this word in order to know what this sin is that he desires to be protected from. He calls it a great sin. This means it is a sin that is more dangerous and more detrimental to us than many other sins. The meaning of our word “transgression” here is Rebellion. Arrogance is a sin that will cause a person to be a rebel against God’s will. It is a sin that causes us to be non-compassionate and self righteous. The person who acts in rebellion is a person without submissiveness. And the end results will be a child of God that wakes up one day and wonders how they wound up in this cold, dark state of spirituality. Oh friend, let’s pause a moment today to ask the Lord to keep us from an arrogant attitude so that we do not find our self living in the great sin of rebellion. Amen.

Genesis 1:3  Psalm 19:12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults..

One of the first steps to repentance is admitting the fault. Many of us spend much effort to hide our sin rather than bringing it before the Lord and repenting of our guilt. I think the biggest reason that we harbor and hide our sin is that we somehow convince ourselves that if it is humanly out of sight then we are not guilty. This is a dangerous lie of the Devil. Our sin is in the wide open in the Lord’s eyes. He even knew our thoughts of the sin before we gave in to it. You see dear friend, there is no such thing as secret sins with God. We may be hiding it from others, but not from God. By hiding our sin we totally underestimate the damage it is doing to our spiritual life. In many cases it could lead to spiritual suicide. Yes, we are killing our power, spiritually. Unrepented sin will eventually cause us to be in a cold, dark state of mind spiritually. And many times will lead to even physical danger. Secret sin is dangerous! Notice our verse mentions our understanding of our secret faults. If only we understood the detriment these sins are creating. Our secret and unrepented faults are hindering us personally, our family, friends, and our church. We may have managed to keep it out of human sight but it is not hidden. The negative effects are very evident. You may be wondering what these secret faults could possibly be. Is it strife, anger, jealousy or pride? My friend, it could be any number of sins that we are attempting to hide from the human eye. It could be immorality, infidelity, and on and on. Secret sin is not a single particular sin. Whether it is a child hiding a fault from their parents or an adult attempting to hide it from their spouse or even their boss or maybe their Pastor, it is still damaging sin. Look at the last part of our verse. The Psalmist pleas to the Lord for forgiveness. He pleas to the Lord to cleanse him. Dear friend, don’t let secret faults destroy you. Carry the situation to the Lord and sincerely plea with Him to cleanse you from this damaging sin. Plea with Him to remove any desire or determining spirit from you that is pressing you to continue to commit these secret faults. Amen.

Genesis 1:1  Psalm 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:


A man’s thoughts can either renew him or ruin him.  The Word tells us that Satan is the prince of the power of the air.  Dear friend, we must not underestimate the evil power of him.  He is the king of wicked.  His plan is to daily attack our mind.  He knows our thoughts and intents.  We all have at one time or another refused to mention a particular bit of information because we were afraid the enemy would over hear us.  Well, that evil rascal doesn’t have to hear it in word form because he is the prince of the power of the air.  If it were not for the mercy and protecting grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we would be devoured of the Devil.  Satan attempts to contaminate our thoughts daily.  This flesh of us is full of vanity and vain thoughts can be easily swayed into sin.  The Devil knows our thoughts, he knows where our weaknesses are, but so does the Lord.   Ps. 94:11 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.  So what do we do?  How can we protect our self from the damaging effect of evil thought?  First we must pray.  We must boldly ask the Lord to filter our thoughts.  We must ask Him early in the day to direct our thoughts into paths of righteousness.  King David asked the Lord that the meditations of his heart be acceptable in the sight of the Lord.  At the first detection of bad thought, ask the Lord to cleanse.  Plea the cleansing power of the Lord Jesus over that thought.  Secondly, we must pursue righteousness.  Many times we battle against evil thoughts because of what we have fed our mind.  If we indulge in the sight and sounds of evil then sin will wrap our mind.   Pro. 16:3 Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.  Ponder on the Word.  Meditate upon the Word.  Think on the last sermon you heard.  Think on your devotion scripture of the day.  There are many ways we can direct our thoughts toward righteousness.     Ps 119:113 I hate vain thoughts: but thy law do I love.  Let’s take action against evil.  We must prepare to seek righteousness each morning.  Feed the mind wisely.  Let’s ask the Lord to cleanse the path we will travel today.  Amen.

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