A brutish man does not know, neither does a fool understand this. When the wicked spring as the grass and when all the workers of iniquity flourish, it is that they shall be destroyed forever. Psalm 92:6-7

Most do not see or understand that God will judge the wicked and unbelieving. Though they may prosper now in this world, their judgment and eternal condemnation is soon coming!

Give me understanding, O God, to see that those who live in impenitence and sin will soon be condemned and that only those who repent and look to You for mercy and forgiveness in Christ Jesus and His cross will be saved. Amen.

It is a good thing to give thanks to the LORD and to sing praises to your name, O Most High, to show forth your loving-kindness in the morning and your faithfulness every night, upon an instrument of ten strings and upon the psaltery, upon the harp with a solemn sound. For you, LORD, have made me glad through your work. I will triumph in the works of your hands. O LORD, how great your works are! And your thoughts are very deep. Psalm 92:1-5

God’s creative works testify of His great wisdom and understanding, as well as His almighty power. They are reason to acknowledge the true God and to offer up to Him our worship and praise! And the fact that He has redeemed us from sin and death through the innocent sufferings and death of His only-begotten Son in our stead is certainly reason to thank and praise His name!

“We praise Thee, O God, our Redeemer, Creator, in grateful devotion our tribute we bring; we lay it before Thee, we kneel and adore Thee; we bless Thy holy name, glad praises we sing.” ( Ju­lia B. Co­ry, 1902)

“I made a covenant with my eyes. Why then should I think upon a maid?” Job 31:1

Job understood that to look upon and desire a woman who is not one’s wife is adultery and contrary to God’s purpose and design in creation (cf. Gen. 1:26-28; 2:18-25; Matt. 5:27-30) and therefore made a covenant with his eyes not to look upon a young woman that he might lust after her.

Forgive me, O God, for sinning with my eyes, for wicked longings and desires, and cleanse my heart that I might use my eyes to Your glory and praise. In Jesus’ name. I pray. Amen.

It is important to remember that it is good to continually thank and praise the LORD our God – with our voices and with musical instruments – for His mercy and His faithfulness toward us in Christ Jesus, our Savior.

But whoever keeps his word, the love of God is truly perfected in him. By this we know that we are in him. He who says he abides in him, ought himself also to walk even as he walked. 1 John 2:5-6

If we truly know the love of God for us in Christ Jesus, it will move us to keep the words and teaching of the Lord Jesus. It is evidence that we trust in Christ Jesus as our Savior if we, as a fruit of faith, seek to walk as He walked.

O Holy Spirit, work through Your Word and grant to me true faith in Christ Jesus and move me to live as he lived. Amen.
