Psalm 119:44 So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever ...

So shall I keep Jesus continually for ever and ever! Can anything go wrong if you keep Jesus continually in your day? I don’t think so. Jesus is the fulfillment of the law. Every jot and tittle of the law was nailed to the cross and fulfilled in Jesus’ resurrection. Mat 5:18  For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 

Things that come up in the course of the day that will cause a person to stress. But keeping Jesus continually before us will decide how we handle that stress. Joh 14:27  Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 

It begins in the morning when your eyes first open. What’s the first thing you think of? Before going on with your day, put Jesus first.Throw some water on your face and grab your favorite morning beverage. Now head to the place where you can get away from distractions. Read a few of Bible verses which will prepare your heart. My go to verses are those found in Psalm 121. That Psalm brings me comfort and help me to focus on the One that can solve all issues in my life. I’m now able to share with the Lord in prayer what is on my heart. I ask Him what His plans are for me for that day and I know that He will show me; whether it’s through His word or a person who I encounter in the course of my day. After prayer, it’s time to listen to the Lord through His word. 1 Co 2:16  For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. We have the mind of Christ so you know that the Holy Spirit will reveal His will to us.

I love nature’s sounds. I have a playlist that I love to listen to as I read my Bible. It’s a compilation of soft piano music with the sounds of the ocean, or birds, or a thunder storm. Then I open my Bible and read. It’s that simple. There is always something that the Lord uses to speak to my heart. When I start my morning prayer and devotions “in the flesh,” I get nothing. Remember: “Garbage in, garbage out.” The phrase refers to computers but aren’t our brains a computer? We need to fill that brain of ours with Jesus. Just as the Psalmist said in today’s verse, I will keep Jesus continually.

Placing Jesus on the throne of your heart will help you with decision making, how you do your job, how you care for your husband and children, how you give counsel to a friend in need, etc.

Now that you’re equipped for the day, go for it! Submit to His will for your life and do His work 🙂
