According To Mercy
It is certain that trials will increase as you continue to seek Me. The greater your faithfulness, the more visible you become to the enemy. The casual follower attracts little attention, while the fervent and sincere are constant targets. The enemy will notice when you live for Me like you really mean it. If you choose holiness and goodness, the evil one will come. He will test your confession to see if it is true.
When in the midst of a difficult time, remember that every day has an end and all its trouble. I will uphold you and sustain your life. I will deal with you according to mercy. No enemy will be able to destroy you. All the days of your life we will walk together, and I will bring you home—perfect and without fault.
If you are diligent, and seek Me with all of your heart, I will reveal the mysteries of My word to you. I will show you a depth and width of life that most never perceive.
Rely upon My presence and keep your eyes on Me. When difficulties, discouragements, and deceit come in like a flood, I will not allow their waters to overcome you. Though many may fall, you will weather every storm and find safe passage on your journey home.
Love My word more than this world, and I will fill the treasuries of your house with every good and pleasant thing.
I have done justice and righteousness; do not leave me to my oppressors. Be surety for Your servant for good; do not let the proud oppress me. My eyes fail from seeking Your salvation and Your righteous word. Deal with Your servant according to Your mercy, and teach me Your statutes. I am Your servant; give me understanding, that I may know Your testimonies. It is time for You to act, O Lord, for they have regarded Your law as void. Therefore I love Your commandments more than gold, yes, than fine gold! Therefore all Your precepts concerning all things I consider to be right; I hate every false way. ~Psalms 119:121-128
Thank You for Your faithfulness, Lord. You have become, for me, a home where every good and pleasant thing resides. I find all that I need when I seek You and, in moments where it counts the most, You never fail me.
Allow me to abide in Your presence and to never wander far. When doubts come and the enemy attacks, remind me of all the former days when You overcame all my doubts and fears and kept me in Your care.
Where can I go from the wonderful love You have shown me? I cannot find an equal in this world, and I long for the day when You come and take me to be with You forever.
