Psalm 26By: Darrelyn L. TuttLife-giving Father,Breathe on me,Speak to me,Empower and embolden me.Flood my soul with Thy purity and my mind with Thy praise.Cleanse my soul of evil, and every wicked and wrong imagination,And lead me in the way everlasting.Project light and life to a lost and dying world, and begin by projecting that light in and through me.Teach me true humility.Teach me how to adaquately identify with the brokenness of others.Teach me how to serve in a spirit of gentleness, tenderness, and compassion.Teach me how to love in a unique and original way that speaks personally to the needs of another.Encompass me with Thy beauty, grace, and wisdom.Intersect me with the strength of Thy word and draw near to me.These things I ask in the name of my Jesus.Amen.------Today's Reading: Psalm 26Chosen Selections:Psalm 26:8 ---> Psalm 26:12"Lord, I have loved the habitation of Thy house, and the place where Thine honor dwelleth."Psalm 26:8"My foot standeth in an even place; in the congregation will I bless the Lord."Psalm 26:12Additional Threads:Psalm 26:8 ---> Exodus 33:7-23Psalm 26:12 ---> 2 Chronicles 6------What truths do you see?Record three.A thread of my own:1) The place where truth and grace wrap themselves around me is the place my soul longs to be. I must allow nothing and no one to bar, hinder, or prevent a sacred ascension into the presence of my God in whom is hid all the treasures of light, truth, and every pure form of goodness. (Col.2:3)I will let no sin remain unconfessed in His presence; I will let no fear of man overtake.I shall draw near to God in full confidence that surrender brings about unconditional acceptance and complete love.2) The lovingkindness of God leads me into the truth of God, and here I find my peace with God. I find my pathway strewn with the saints of old: Abraham, Isaac, Joseph, David, Ruth, Rahab, Peter, Paul, and the several "Mary's."Joint heirs with Jesus, kinsman travelers, lovers and seekers of the divine; truth transcending all space and time."For Thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes; and I have walked in Thy truth."Psalm 26:33) When I am stationed with the Christ, I find myself in a God-ordained, sanctified, and glorified place; where the sandals ought to be removed and the presence of God emphatically embraced.And in this place I worship.Hallelujah and Amen.-------
