“How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking head according to Your word…. Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your law…. Remove from me the way of lying, and grant me Your law graciously. I have chosen the way of truth; Your judgments I have laid before me…. Teach me, O LORD, the way of Your statutes, and I shall keep it to the end.” Psalm 119: 9, 18, 29-30, 33

Neither the old nor the young can walk uprightly, without taking heed to the Word of God. If they depart from that, they soon fall into error and vicious courses. But if they would make the Word their rule, they must read it carefully and pray diligently for the aid of the Holy Spirit.

If David considered his eyes as shut, how much more should we consider ours so, and pray, “Open my eyes.” He who does not fervently pray thus is still blind, even though he should think himself a profound divine and be so esteemed by others.

Lord, give me to see the wonders both of Your law and gospel and turn my feet from every crooked path. Let Your commandments be always before me as my guide and enable me to choose the narrow path of truth and steadfastly walk in it to the end. This was David’s request throughout this long Psalm. Make it mine, O Lord, and imbue me with the spirit of David, and of David’s Lord. Be my teacher. Keep me at Your feet as a learner and make me wise, useful, and exemplary.

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
