“Examine me, O LORD, and prove
me; try my reins and my heart” (Psalm 26:2).
In a world of injustice, we
must make a plan to maintain peace and joy. We as believers
must live by the words of Christ and determine that we will
not make excuses for our mistakes; we will not justify every
wrong that we do. We need to determine today that when we
realize we are in the wrong; we will make a 180-degree turn in
our path, correct ourselves and show our maturity. We can be
a living example for others that righteousness is a way to
happiness, not because we have earned it but because it was
freely given to us.
We must stand fixed and unmoved
with the principles that we are learning from the word of
God. We must make our stand unmistakably with the Lord! You
might wonder why the stand we make be “unmistakable.” One of
the answers would be that the world we live in is confused,
and we all continually choose to use justification for every
wrong act we make. If we are going to survive, if we are
going to be filled with joy and live in happiness, if we are
going to have the peace of God in our lives regardless of what
happens, we must make a conscious decision to stand for our
righteousness and not be moved!
Our stand must be able to be
recognized and; believe me, if you choose to live a life of
self-correctness and not self- justification it will be
recognized. Recall your commitment to our Lord and Savior as
you meditate on the principles that have been mentioned and
upon the scriptures that have been applied. Today, make a
choice to recall the redemption that He has so freely given to
you and me.
“Search me, O God, and know my
heart; try me, and know my thoughts” (Psalm 139.23).
May God’s Blessings flow freely
to and through you~
