The Lord's Promises Are Pure

God's way is perfect.
All the Lord's promises prove true.
He is a shield for all who look to Him for all who look to Him for protection.
Psalm 18:30

Let Your love, God, shape my life
with salvation, exactly as You promised;
Then I'll be albe to stand up to mockery
because I trusted Your Word.
Don't ever deprive me of truth, not ever -
Your commandments are what I depend on.
Oh, I'll guard with my life what You've revealed to me,
guard it now, guard it ever;
And I'll stride freely through wide open spaces
as I look for Your truth and Your wisdom;
Then I'll tell the world that I find,
speak out boldly in public, unembarrassed.
I cherish Your commandments - oh how I love them! -
relishing every fragment of Your counsel.
Ps. 119:41-48 the message

The Lord's promises are pure,
like silver refined in a furnance,
purified seven times over.
Psalm 12:6

O Lord,
This sinful flesh is so prone to wonder.
Sin.
Forget.
Doubt.
Leave You.

I am trusting Your promises today.
Your ways are perfect.
Pure.
True.
Life.
Faithful.

When I am attacked,
You are my shield.
When I am alone
You are my friend.
When I am tired,
You are my Strength.

Nothing that I am present with today,
You won't be able to handle.
Nothing.
Not a distressed baby.
Not a disobedient child.
Not a dirty diaper (instead of in the potty).
Not a dinner on the table.
You will be with me. 
Strenghtening me. 

I want You to shape my life.
Help me to...
Speak kinder
Listen longer
Think the best
Help me to hide Your Word in
my heart, my mind, my very soul.
Your Word is life to me.
Amen.
