“Who may ascend the hill of the LORD? Who may stand in his holy place?” He who does not “swear by what is false.”
[To put value on what is false is a serious sin. In the world, beauty and wealth, power and position are the predominate and false values. But the truth is, only what you, Lord, value is worth our time and energy–love and grace, your Word, prayer, service and goodness. I praise you that in you we can be free from what is false, for you are Truth itself and the truth sets us free.
You know all things, therefore your measure of truth is the one we should use. I praise and thank you, Lord Jesus, for shepherding us into freedom FROM falsehood, and into freedom IN Truth.
You are the wise God who, through your Word and Spirit, reveals to us what we cannot possibly discover with our feeble intellect. You are the great and wonderful God whom we can worship because you have opened the way into a rich and rousing relationship with you.
Help me to walk with you closely through the whole of this day, rejecting idols and obeying what I know to be true, honoring you.
