My Refuge, My Deliverer

Psalm 15, NIV

 

Psalm 15

LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill? He whose walk
is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart
and has no slander on his tongue, who does his neighbor no wrong and casts no slur
on his fellowman, who despises a vile man but honors those who fear the LORD, who
keeps his oath even when it hurts, who lends his money without usury and does not
accept a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things will never be shaken.

 

Ouch!  I can’t do all this.  There is no way!  I fail at this every day.

 

Lord, I can’t do it in my own strength.  I need Yours!  Help me!

 

I thank You, Lord, that You accept me anyway, that You allow me to dwell in the house of the Lord, because Your son did all those things; He was sinless.  he died so I could be, too.  Because of this, You are my refuge.  I can rest in Your everlasting arms.  May I not forget this.  May I never take it for granted!
