Today is my birthday and I seen this scripture (Psalm 119:133) and it is my prayer today. I don’t want my human weakness to ever have power over me. I don’t want to give into that weakness in my own strength. That will for sure separate me from God. When I rely on my own strength my weakness comes forth and causes me to sin. 

John 15: without Him I can do nothing… I need to depend on the Grace of the Mediator – Jesus Christ- for I live, move, and have my being in Him. I can do nothing towards Justification or Sanctification in myself. 

Psalm 119:133  (AMP)

Establish my footsteps in [the way of] Your word;

Do not let any human weakness have power over me [causing me to be separated from You].

Matthew Henry:

Here David prays for two great spiritual blessings, and is, in this verse, as earnest for the good work of God in him as, in the verse before, for the good-will of God towards him. He prays, 1. For direction in the paths of duty: “Order my steps in thy word; having led me into the right way, let every step I take in that way be under the guidance of thy grace.” We ought to walk by rule; all the motions of the soul must not only be kept within the bounds prescribed by the word, so as not to transgress them, but carried out in the paths prescribed by the word, so as not to trifle in them. And therefore we must beg of God that by his good Spirit he would order our steps accordingly. 2. For deliverance from the power of sin: “Let no iniquity have dominion over me, so as to gain my consent to it, and that I should be led captive by it.” The dominion of sin is to be dreaded and deprecated by every one of us; and, if in sincerity we pray against it, we may receive that promise as an answer to the prayer (Rom. 6:14), Sin shall not have dominion over you.

Good news He started the work in me and will continue it!

Philippians 1:6  (KJV)

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

Matthew Henry:

Observe here, (1.) The work of grace is a good work, a blessed work; for it makes us good, and is an earnest of good to us. It makes us like God, and fits us for the enjoyment of God. That may well be called a good work which does us the greatest good. (2.) Wherever this good work is begun it is of God’s beginning: He has begun a good work in you. We could not begin it ourselves, for we are by nature dead in trespasses and sins: and what can dead men do towards raising themselves to life; or how can they begin to act till they are enlivened in the same respect in which they are said to be dead? It is God who quickens those who are thus dead, Eph. 2:1; Col. 2:13. (3.) The work of grace is but begun in this life; it is not finished here; as long as we are in this imperfect state there is something more to be done. (4.) If the same God who begins the good work did not undertake the carrying on and finishing of it, it would lie for ever unfinished. He must perform it who began it. (5.) We may be confident, or well persuaded, that God not only will not forsake, but that he will finish and crown the work of his own hands. For, as for God, his work is perfect. (6.) The work of grace will never be perfected till the day of Jesus Christ, the day of his appearance. When he shall come to judge the world, and finish his mediation, then this work will be complete, and the top-stone will be brought forth with shouting. We have the same expression, Phil. 1:10.

He began the work in me. I didn’t love Him first. While I was still in sin, Rom. 5:8 He clearly shows and proved His love for me, Christ died for me! This work of Grace is beyond what this world can understand. By nature we are dead in our sins and dead men can’t raise themselves. He raised me in newness of life. He started this work of Grace and will keep working that Grace in me until Jesus comes or I go home to be with Him. 

This is my favorite verse:

Lamentations 3:22-24 Amplified Bible (AMP)

It is because of the Lord’s loving-kindnesses that we are not consumed,

Because His [tender] compassions never fail.

They are new every morning;

Great and beyond measure is Your faithfulness.

“The Lord is my portion and my inheritance,” says my soul;

“Therefore I have hope in Him and wait expectantly for Him.”

Every morning we can wake up new. We do not have to bring yesterday into today. We can live today without condemnation. We can ask for forgiveness and He is faithful and just to forgive us. (1 john 1:9) God is faithful and will not leave us nor forsake us. 

Hebrews 13:5  (AMP)

Let your character [your moral essence, your inner nature] be free from the love of money [shun greed—be financially ethical], being content with what you have; for He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!”

I am thankful for my life. It has been a full life since I came to know Jesus as my Savior. My prayer is those who meet me will come to know Him too.
