Just some questions I came up with and things to apply to myself and my walk with Jesus while reading my Bible today. Was thinking "blogpost" while doing so... hence the post :)
What does my behavior say to the Lost? What does it say to other Believers? Can they tell that there is a ‘fear of the LORD’ in my life—‘before my eyes’, in the words of the psalmist? Is there actually a fear of the LORD in my life, before mine eyes, to be observed by the Lost and other Christians?
Do I flatter myself in my own eyes? Life myself up in my own esteem? Until my iniquity (my choosing to do what I want, when I want to, because I want to…) is found of others to be a hateful thing? A disgusting lifestyle?
Are the words of my mouth iniquity? Are they words that I wish to say, or are they words that Christ would say and have me say? Are the words that issue forth from my mouth deceitful? Have I ‘left off’, have a said ‘Forget it!’ to being wise and seeking wisdom? Have I given up on being good?
What do I ‘devise’ upon my bed? What do I dream about, meditate on? Do I devise to do good (Proverbs 14:22) and dream of my Beloved, (Psalm 63:6) my Maker? Have I set myself on a way that is not good, or on a way that is good? Do I hate evil, or has some of it become acceptable in my sight—good even?
By God’s good grace…
- Fear Him
- Set Him before mine eyes
- Humble myself under the mighty had of God and He will exalt me in due time
- Do not iniquity
- Speak not iniquity
- Speak the truth
- Seek after—pursue—wisdom
- Strive to do good!
- Devise to do good to others the following day, plan out a Godly and Christ honoring and family oriented day, every night upon my bed
- Meditate on all the good God has done for me that day every night in bed
- Set myself (and allow myself to be set) on/in a way that is good
- Hate and abhor evil!
