Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.” 2 Timothy 2:19 NIV
Having finished the written explication of Psalm 119, I am pausing at the intersection of this journey and reflecting upon what I learned from it.
We (or at least I am) are no different from the writer of hundreds of years ago. We are still in awe of God’s goodness; we still need Him to guide us; we still need to pray-communicate with Him often; we still need to understand He is our salvation from the wicked; we still need to study His Word in order to know how to live and we still need to know how to love–even the unlovable.
One would think that after all this time we would have learned from the mistakes and the history of those who came before us, but unfortunately, we tend to ignore history and keep making the same mistakes and end up on the same path as those who came before us. The lessons we need to learn appear to be a never-ending cycle that is spiraling into the depths of destruction of mankind.
When will we learn? I am convinced I do not have the answer and therefore, I will continue to trust God in all things for my understanding is so limited of His Wisdom, I will never have full understanding of all His ways.
This one thing I do know–I need Jesus–every hour of every day and I will never reach a place in my life that I won’t need Him.
I’m going to continue my reflection at this intersection, seeking His wisdom in His Word to determine where I shall head next on this journey in meditating upon His Word.
May The Lord continue to speak to your hearts, guiding you every step of the way on your own journey to discovering even more of His goodness as we continue to navigate life.
