Come Back to the LORD-Day 14 Wednesday, Apr 4 2018 

Today’s Scripture is found at Psalms 119:105-112

Nun.

105 Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.
106 I have sworn and I will confirm it,
That I will keep Your righteous ordinances.
107 I am exceedingly afflicted;
[a]Revive me, O Lord, according to Your word.
108 O accept the freewill offerings of my mouth, O Lord,
And teach me Your ordinances.
109 My [b]life is continually [c]in my hand,
Yet I do not forget Your law.
110 The wicked have laid a snare for me,
Yet I have not gone astray from Your precepts.
111 I have inherited Your testimonies forever,
For they are the joy of my heart.
112 I have inclined my heart to perform Your statutes
Forever, even to the end.

For we know Psalms 138:7-8

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will [a]revive me;
You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies,
And Your right hand will save me.
The Lord will accomplish what concerns me;
Your lovingkindness, O Lord, is everlasting;
Do not forsake the works of Your hands.

Come Back to the Lord-Day 8 Thursday, Mar 29 2018 

The Scripture we are studying today can be found in the book of Psalms chapter 119: 57-64

Psalm 119:57-64 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Heth.

57 The Lord is my portion;
I have [a]promised to keep Your words.
58 I sought Your favor with all my heart;
Be gracious to me according to Your [b]word.
59 I considered my ways
And turned my feet to Your testimonies.
60 I hastened and did not delay
To keep Your commandments.
61 The cords of the wicked have encircled me,
But I have not forgotten Your law.
62 At midnight I shall rise to give thanks to You
Because of Your righteous ordinances.
63 I am a companion of all those who [c]fear You,
And of those who keep Your precepts.
64 The earth is full of Your lovingkindness, O Lord;
Teach me Your statutes.

For we know:

Hebrews 1:1-3 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
God’s Final Word in His Son

God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, [a]in these last days has spoken to us [b]in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the [c]world. [d]And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and [e]upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

The Lord is our portion. All who seek Him shall not be dismayed.

Come Back to the Lord-Day 6 Tuesday, Mar 27 2018 

The Scripture for today can be found in the book of Psalms chapter 119 verses 41-48:

Vav.

41 May Your lovingkindnesses also come to me, O Lord,
Your salvation according to Your [o]word;
42 So I will have an answer for him who reproaches me,
For I trust in Your word.
43 And do not take the word of truth utterly out of my mouth,
For I [p]wait for Your ordinances.
44 So I will keep Your law continually,
Forever and ever.
45 And I will walk [q]at liberty,
For I seek Your precepts.
46 I will also speak of Your testimonies before kings
And shall not be ashamed.
47 I shall [r]delight in Your commandments,
Which I love.
48 And I shall lift up my hands to Your commandments,
Which I love;
And I will meditate on Your statutes.

We have here in these few verses the entire process of transformation that takes place within the heart and mind of every Christian.

For we know:

Romans 10: 17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word [b]of Christ.

Salvation Process

Purpose: the lovingkindnesses of the Lord to come to me.

Reproach: the moment we seek the Lord the enemy begins in earnest.

Trust in the Word: the marvel and wonder of the Scriptural foundation.

Waiting for the work of the Spirit: in God’s timing the seeds of the word sprout.

Keeping the commandments.

Freedom from sin: in Christ

Continual seeking to know Him by the Word of Truth.

Speaking the Word: Verbalizing Scripture creates the train that carries the Scriptures from our minds into the depths of our hearts.

Shamelessness: in Christ.

Delight in the Word: love of God.

Meditation: Prayer is the final seal of conversions. The grace and power of the Almighty works all in all.

God’s Forgiveness Tuesday, Nov 28 2017 

Psalm 32New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Blessedness of Forgiveness and of Trust in God.

A Psalm of David. A [a]Maskil.

32 How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
Whose sin is covered!
How blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity,
And in whose spirit there is no deceit!

When I kept silent about my sin, my [b]body wasted away
Through my [c]groaning all day long.
For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me;
My [d]vitality was drained away as with the fever heat of summer. [e]Selah.
I acknowledged my sin to You,
And my iniquity I did not hide;
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord”;
And You forgave the [f]guilt of my sin. Selah.
Therefore, let everyone who is godly pray to You [g]in a time when You may be found;
Surely in a flood of great waters they will not reach him.
You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble;
You surround me with [h]songs of deliverance. Selah.

I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go;
I will counsel you with My eye upon you.
Do not be as the horse or as the mule which have no understanding,
Whose trappings include bit and bridle to hold them in check,
Otherwise they will not come near to you.
10 Many are the sorrows of the wicked,
But he who trusts in the Lord, lovingkindness shall surround him.
11 Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous ones;
And shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.
