Your statutes stand firm; holiness adorns your house for endless days, O LORD. — Psalm 93:5
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
So many of the material things we pursue are temporary. Their usefulness lasts only a matter of months or at most a few short years. Even our lives, and the lives of those we love, are short. But God’s character, his defining quality (“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty!”), and his demands for our holiness are forever. So as we build our lives, let’s build on a secure foundation — the will of God and a commitment to share in his holiness.
Holy God, I thank you for making me holy and forgiving my sin by your grace. Fill me with your Spirit and bring forth the Spirit’s fruit in my life so that it reflects your grace and your character. Give me a hunger to know your will and to seek your truth and an ability to understand and apply it to my life. I want to build my life with you as its center and its goal. In Jesus’ precious name I pray. Amen.
