Precious to Me

Everyone has something that they deem as precious. Parents see their children as precious. Some people are amazed by different pieces of art and would deem the pieces to be precious. We have precious items behind glass, locked up in a safe, or even placed in museums. Each person has a different opinion as to […]

Largest Crowd

I do not like large crowds; when I am around a large crowd I am overwhelmed by the noise, the energy, all of the different things happening at once in the different people groupings. It is horrific and takes me hours to desensitize from being drenched in a crowd for a set amount of time. […]

Exactly Like You

Something we often all find ourselves doing at some point in life is trying to make God exactly like us. There are many people who have their own personal god who they have created and believe to be God. As Isaiah notes, we cannot think like God. Even so, we tend to believe we know […]

False Way of Life

The Psalmist declares hate for every false way of life. Other translations translate this as hating the wrong path or false propaganda. The Hebrew word “sheqer” is used here, meaning falsehood or deception. The complete verse says that the commandments of God result in understanding. When we have this understanding, the result is then hatred […]

Immeasurable

“Great is the LORD! He is most worthy of praise! No one can measure His greatness.” No one can measure His greatness. It’s immeasurable. We toss around a lot of words. Awesome. Great. Wonderful. We use these words to describe things, and sometimes in doing so, we diminish the actual meaning of the word. God […]

All I Really Want

In Psalm 142, we read a statement that some people really couldn’t truthfully speak if saying what was truly on the heart. It is a statement that makes a decision that we each have to make. Some people will never reach this prayer. First, the Psalmist prays, “You are my place of refuge.” We often […]

As Soon

As soon as I pray, God answers. As soon as you pray, God answers. The Psalmist wrote about a response of encouragement and strength, but this isn’t the only answer from God. We can rest assured that as soon as we pray, God answers in whatever way He desires. When you pray, remember that you […]

No Good Thing

God wants the very best for us. This is something that some people cannot fathom because they do not truly know God. Often it is because we think we know what is best, that we grumble at things that are placed before us or we complain as we journey on a path that simply doesn’t […]

All That I Am

It is amazing to consider how we are constructed. Doctors and scientists have tried to figure it all out, studying every nook and cranny, and still cannot understand how He has created. We truly are each a work of art and He is the master Artist. That being said, we do know that we are […]

Forever in Your Sanctuary

Forever is a very long time. The Psalmist writes in Psalm 61 about a request: “Let me live forever in Your sanctuary.” This is not a simple request. This request is for a sinful man to spend forever with God, Holy God, in His presence. Despite it not being a simple request, it is a […]
