Don’t Put it Off

“This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it”- Psalm 118:24

Many people are waiting for their circumstances to change in order to be happy and enjoy their lives. All the time I hear things like, “As soon as I get out of this problem, I’ll be happy.” “As soon as I lose ten pounds…as soon as my business grows…as soon as my child straightens up…” No, if you don’t put your foot down and decide to be happy right now, there will always be something to keep you from being happy.

God never intended for us to put off our happiness. We have a choice to make each and every day. We have to set our minds in the right direction. That’s why David said, “This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it.” He was saying, “This is the day to be happy; not tomorrow, not when the weather clears up. Not next week, when I don’t have to work so hard. Not next month, when I make it through this difficult time.” No, choose to honor the Lord right now by choosing to enjoy your life. Get rid of the excuses and rejoice because this is the day that the Lord has made!

The way everlasting

Finally, David prayed, “Lead me in the way everlasting” (Psalm 139:24).

David’s prayer contained a proper sequence. First, he prayed that God might know him; then he prayed that God might cleanse him; last, he prayed that God might direct him.

David’s transformation, as a result of this prayer, was full and complete. Israel was brought into harmony with God; and David’s son Solomon brought to Israel one of the most prosperous reigns Israel had ever known.

Likewise, salvation can only come to you as an individual as you repent and by faith receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

*The study ‘Where Change Really Begins’ is part of the message from Dr Billy Graham.

Our country needs serious prayers to find a solution for crises that is not visible including ourselves, if we are healed our country would also reap the benifits, lets join hands together and prayer atleast for 2 minutes daily for our country and the leaders of our country

See if there is any wicked way in me

David also prayed, “And see if there is any wicked way in me” (Psalm 139:24).

Sin is not only the saboteur of souls—it is the destroyer of nations. For that which undermines and disintegrates the human spirit also destroys the society. “Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34).

Sin is defined as the “transgression of the law of God” and cannot bring any degree of happiness to the human heart. This is a truth demonstrated by history, logic and human experience.

The Bible teaches that God will not allow sin to go unpunished—in this life or in the world to come. Sin digs for itself two hells: one this side of death, and one the other side of death.

Many today are living in a self-made hell. Lusts, selfish appetites and indulgences have dug a pit for them. It burns with the fires of their expended passions.

This “hell on earth” can be covered by the blood of Christ. Thousands who have lived in a veritable inferno of lusts, habits and uncontrollable passions have been extricated by the grace of God.

David, God’s chosen man, found himself deluged with iniquity—a victim of his own lusts. But he took the lead and in humility of heart confessed his spiritual need to God.

This prayer was a turning point in his life. By his sincere confession of inadequacy he was brought into the very courts of the Most High, and God rushed to his rescue. When he was rescued, his court and his nation were also rescued. All salvation—social, political and national—begins with the salvation of the individual.
