{ Day 273 }

I have chosen the way of truth; I have set my heart on your laws. I hold fast to your statutes, O Lord; do not let me be put to shame. I run in the path of your commands, for you have set my heart free. —Psalm 119:30-32

David faced many external enemies, but he also triumphed over a much more formidable foe: his own heart. He knew how to commit his spirit into God's hands when confronted by his own weakness. This is one of the hardest things to figure out in the Christian walk, but to be people after God's heart, we must. The glory of the human story is that we can't exhaust God's mercy. Our weakness never disqualifies us if we sincerely repent. David discovered that there is a contingency for human weakness, which comes to us by God's grace. In his times of weakness, he ran toward God instead of away from Him.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Father, like David, I choose Your truth. My heart desires to know only Your Word. I cling to Your promises and trust Your plans. In the times of my greatest weakness, I will run to You and find Your strength and power.

The glory of the human story is that
we can't exhaust God's mercy.
