Psalm 119:36 KJV | Christian bible quotes, Psalms, Kjv

Where is Jesus in this verse? Incline my heart unto Jesus, and not to covetousness. The Treasury of David has an interesting comment – I’ve added it below. David was the apple of God’s eye. One would think that he kept his heart focused on the Lord. But being human, I’m certain that he had tendencies to lean toward the opposite direction, as shown below.

The only way to cure a wrong leaning is to have the soul bent in the opposite direction. Holiness of heart is the cure for covetousness.

The only way to deal with sin is to be focused and centered on the Lord and His word. Jesus quoted scripture to Satan when He was tempted by him in the desert. Jesus was in human form and could have succumbed to sin after 40 days of no eating. When the body is in pain and weak, it is harder to ward off the devil. However, Jesus quoted His words from the Old Testament back at the devil. Is that what we do when we have fallen to temptation? Being tempted is not sin but giving into temptation is. The Lord promises to help us out of these situations.

James 1:14-15 14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

It is not until the temptation has been “conceived” in our heart that it brings forth sin. Therefore, do not let yourself get to that point. We have a choice as born-again believers! We do not have to sin. We can stay focused on God’s word and quote it back to the devil when we are tempted. Be encouraged, Christian… it won’t be long now before Rapture occurs. Our troubles here on earth will be gone and we will be forever with the Lord for all eternity! Oh joy!

WHAT A DAY THAT WILL BE

There’s coming a day when no heartaches shall come
No more clouds in the sky
No more tears to dim the eye
All is peace forever more
On that happy golden shore
What a day, glorious day that will be

What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see
When I look upon His face the one who saved my by His grace
When He takes me by the hand and leads me to the promised land
What a day, glorious day that will be

There will be no sorrows there
And no more burdens to bear
No more sickness and, no more pain
No more parting over there
And forever I will be with the one who died for me
What a day, glorious day that will be

What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see
When I look upon His face the one who saved my by His grace
When He takes me by the hand and leads me to the promised land
What a day, glorious day that will be

What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see
When I look upon His face the one who saved my by His grace
When He takes me by the hand and leads me to the promised land
What a day, glorious day that will be
