CrossPs. 32:8 The LORD says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.”

There are many pathways one can travel on in life, some are good, some are better, some are bad, but there is only one pathway that leads to God and that is the way of the Cross. It is the pathway that is walked humbly. It requires much diligence, faithfulness, perseverance, and trust.

The way of the Cross has many difficulties along the way. We are constantly being bombarded along the way with the fiery darts of Satan. We face much opposition from those not walking with us, and even sometimes from those walking with us. We are often not understood and criticized. We do not always see where we are going or why we must go that way. We are prone to wander off the path and must resist the urge to do so. We often stumble and fall along the way and must resolve to get up and keep on going. We will encounter many people endeavoring to walk with us who do not belong on the road. We will be enticed to doubt what the Lord says and believe others things. We will not always get things right and must be willing to continue to learn and grow. We must be willing to change as the Lord prompts us to change along the way. We must strive to always walk in step with the Lord and not lag behind Him or try to run ahead of Him. We must be willing to admit it when we sin and confess them before Christ so we can be kept pure before God. We must love others who are walking with us in the same way that Christ loves us. In other words, all who walk the way of the Cross must imitate Christ in all they do and say to the best of their abilities. We must strive to be holy, even as He is holy.

The promise of God is that He will advise us and watch over us on Calvary’s road. He will teach us the things we need to know. He will tell us how to best follow in His footsteps. He will give us specific things we need to know on our journey. Not everyone walks the same way or at the same speed so His advice will vary amongst us. But, if we are listening, we will receive what we need from the Lord for our particular journey of faith. He will as well watch over us to protect us so that we will reach our destination safe and sound. The Lord is at the other end of our journey waiting for us. Blessed are those who walk on Calvary’s road. Great is their reward in heaven.

CrossPs. 32:6 Therefore, let all the godly confess their rebellion to you while there is time, that they may not drown in the floodwaters of judgment.

Here the godly are being singled out. Yes, the godly do sin. What happens when the godly do not confess their sins and die? They will face God with sin on their hearts. How will God handle that? Only God knows that for sure. He knows the heart motives of man and will judge fairly and rightly each of us. He knows whether or not we are truly righteous in heart. All I can tell you for sure is that no sin will be in heaven.

Today’s verse tells us that the godly will drown in the floodwaters of judgment if they don’t confess their sins. God’s judgments are like a floodwater. It sweeps away everything in its path. It is consuming power and no one can stop it. It cannot be contained and will keep flowing until it accomplishes its purpose. Anyone caught in floodwaters will more than likely drown.

The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way for the godly. If we will quit hiding behind our perceived righteousness and confess our sins, we will be saved. If we quit resisting God’s ways and live life by God’s Word, we will be saved. If we quit pretending that we are better than we are, we will be saved. If we are living in Christ’s righteousness and not our own, we will be saved.

In reality, the godly are not as godly as we might think we are. We are all guilty of sin, no matter how long we have been in the faith. We all have need of confession. We all need to carefully monitor our souls and submit to God’s rightful authority over us. We all need to acknowledge our need for Jesus to be our Savior and Lord.

CrossPs. 32:1-2 Oh, what joy for those whose rebellion is forgiven, whose sin is put out of sight. Yes, what joy for those whose record the LORD has cleared of sin, whose lives are lived in complete honesty!

Feast on the riches of God’s grace and rejoice! God forgives those who rebel against Him when they turn from their rebellion and turn to Him. He does not turn away anyone who is willing to quit resisting Him and start walking with Him He forgives us for our rebelliousness because He loves us and desires to have a relationship with us.

God puts our sin out of His sight. I don’t know how He is able to do that. We can put our sin behind us and live in His forgiveness, but we still remember what we have done. Sometimes our past sins haunt us. We struggle with letting them go and forgiving ourselves for them. But it’s not that way with God. He washes our sins away with the shed blood of Jesus at Calvary and they are no more. God does not see our past; He sees the righteousness of Christ in us. We have no history with God; it’s always the present. All that matters to Him is Christ in us. As long as we stay in the shelter of His righteousness, we have no condemnation from God. God clears the record of the redeemed. He washes our souls and they become whiter than snow.

There is joy in the soul of those who live in complete honesty. What a blessing it is to be guided and influenced by the integrity of one’s heart. There is a desire within the redeemed to do what is right before God always. The intent of the heart is to always be true to the revealed character of God within us. The soul’s delight is living to please God, to do what honors Him. There is joy in those whose character matters to them, for Christ is actively at work in them to make them holy.

CrossPs. 31:21a Praise the LORD, for he has shown me his unfailing love.

Have you seen it? Have you felt it? Do you know God’s unfailing love in your life? God’s love is always the same; it never fails. God is incapable of doing anything but love, for he is love. We may not always recognize it or believe it is so, but it is. No matter what life may be like for us, we must know that it is true. God loves us. Period. He does not promise to spare us from life’s difficulties, but he does promise to help us through them. He doesn’t leave us alone. He doesn’t let us wander around in darkness. He doesn’t make us earn our way into heaven. He doesn’t hold us accountable for sins forgiven. He doesn’t even remember them. He doesn’t leave us defenseless against Satan. He doesn’t let that which he has created fall apart in disarray. He doesn’t let us live without a sure hope. He doesn’t keep the door to God’s throne shut to us. He doesn’t do any of these things, because he loves us.

Praise the Lord for his unfailing love! The Lord will always treat us in a loving way. Trust Him. He will never stop loving you. He will never stop working in your life for your good and his glory. God loves you! Give Him praise today for his love for you never fails and will never fail you.

CrossPs. 30:4-5 Sing to the LORD, all you godly ones! Praise his holy name. His anger lasts for a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may go on all night, but joy comes with the morning.

Do you have a song in your heart that you find hard to contain? As a pastor of over 40 years who has absolutely zero musical ability within me, I have found it difficult to be quiet when singing God’s praises. I try to be sensitive to those around me, but it’s hard. My wife, who has lots of music within her, has to now and then let me know when I get too loud. One of the great things I look forward to in heaven is that there it won’t matter. There will be no restraints and I will be able to sing our Lord’s praises to all of my heart’s content.

Dear child of God, praise the holy name of Jesus. Praise Him for your salvation, His faithfulness, goodness, kindness, love, grace and mercy. Praise the Lord for your eternal life with Him. Praise Him for the fellowship of believers. Praise Him for His revelations to us through His Word and through His created world. Praise Him for we shall be with Him forever and ever. It will indeed be joy unspeakable and full of glory!

Sing to the Lord, dear friend, for His anger lasts only for a moment. Our God is a merciful and gracious loving Father. Yes, He can and does get angry when we sin, but His anger does not last when He sees the righteousness of Christ in us. Praise Him, for there is now no condemnation for us who are in Christ Jesus.

In this life we may go through seasons of weeping. It may seem like the days of weeping will never end, but end they will. No matter what your life may be like now, it shall pass and then comes our eternal day with the Lord where there will be no weeping or sorrow. On that day there will be eternal joy and praise will be a continuous song ascending unto the throne of our God.
Sing to the Lord all you who are godly! Praise His holy name!

CrossPs. 29:1,2 Give honor to the LORD, you angels, give honor to the LORD for his glory and strength. Give honor to the LORD for the glory of his name. Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness.

What does it mean to give honor to the Lord? I believe it means we show respect for Him by acknowledging Him for who He is. It means that we give way to Him because of who He is. It means we submit to His rightful place as Lord over all our lives.

It’s interesting to note that the Psalmist is addressing the angels of heaven here. We have limited knowledge about the angels, but one thing we do know is that they are kept very busy worshiping and serving the Lord. They are constantly in the presence of God and they have no problem honoring God.

We, on the other hand, struggle with honoring the Lord. We tend to take God for granted. We tend to be lax on how we worship Him. We are lax on how we use His name. We are lax on how we represent Him in the world. We are lax on how we think about Him.

The heavenly hosts are keenly aware of God’s holiness. I wonder how many of us are aware of God’s holiness. Does the fact that God is holy do anything at all for you? Does it bother you to think about His intolerance towards sin? Does it bother you that you struggle with sin as much as you do? Do you even think about it? Does the fact that God is holy affect the way you approach Him? It should. God declares that without holiness no one shall see Him. He commands us to be holy, even as He is holy.

We give honor most to those whom we know and respect the most. And, you can’t really know God without knowing Him in His holiness.

CrossPs. 27:4 The one thing I ask of the LORD–the thing I seek most–is to live in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, delighting in the LORD’s perfections and meditating in his Temple. For he will conceal me there when troubles come; he will hide me in the sanctuary. He will place me out of reach on a high rock.

When was the last time you asked the Lord to keep you in His presence so that you won’t sin against Him? It is good for us to long to linger in Gods presence.

Our heart passion ought to be to delight in the Lord’s perfections. We ought to consider it pure joy to linger in the presence of God’s holiness. Instead of seeing holiness as a negative thing, we should see it as a positive thing. When we delight in God’s holiness we are able to resist the temptations of sin. We will have the desire to not sin against God.

Our heart passion ought to be to meditate on God and His Word. Whenever you draw near to God, you should be in no hurry to leave His presence. We should think often on who God is. We should meditate on the Word and let its truths sink deep into our souls.

When we dwell in the presence of God, we are kept safe. The Lord protects those who are in His presence. We need to always keep the Lord before us. We need to always stay close to the Lord, never moving out of the reach of His protection. We need to always be mindful of God so that we will have the will to not sin against Him.

Keeping God on our minds doesn’t just happen. We must work hard at keeping our focus on Him. Life is full of distractions. The soul has a natural tendency to be distracted. We must make our connection to God the priority of our lives. We must take responsibility for our souls by doing the things we must do to keep our eyes fixed on Him. We must never let our passion for God dim or grow cold.

CrossPs. 27:1 The LORD is my light and salvation—so why should I be afraid? The LORD protects me from danger—so why should I tremble?

We fear the unknown. When we don’t know what to expect and there is a sense that it might cause us harm, we begin to get afraid. Fear can cripple us to the point that we don’t do anything. It can also protect us so that we don’t do something that would harm or endanger us.

We learn to respect that which we fear. We understand the danger to us if we don’t and become cautious. We stay alert so we don’t put ourselves in harm’s way. We do all we can do to keep as safe as possible. Fear protects us by keeping us alert and ready for whatever may be before us.

A healthy relationship with God instills in us a fear of Him. To fear the Lord involves a reverence and respect for Him. We acknowledge who God is and humble ourselves befofre Him. We don’t take lightly God’s holiness and justice. We don’t take lightly our need to present ourselves to Him with pure hearts. We don’t take lightly the fact that God holds us accountable for our sins. We don’t minimize our constant need for Him.

In Christ we are no longer afraid because He is our light and salvation. We no longer fear because we know we can trust Him to protect us as we draw near to God. We understand that there is great danger to our souls away from Him so we stay as close to Him as we possibly can.

If fear grips your soul, turn to Jesus and wait before Him. Abide in Him. Let Him light your path and protect you. Perfect love, Christ’s love, casts out every fear.

CrossPs. 26:4-5 I do not spend time with liars or go along with hypocrites. I hate the gatherings of those who do evil, and I refuse to join in with the wicked.

The Psalmist shows us a sure fire way to keep our souls out of trouble with God. We stay away from those who would lead us into sin. When we choose carefully those whom we spend most of our time with, we can avoid many of the pitfalls of sin.

It is a waste of time to hang around with those who are liars. You cannot trust those who do not have the integrity of heart to tell the truth. You can be easily deceived by them. Listen to them and you will find it difficult to distinguish that which is true from that which is false.

It is not a good idea to spend time with those who profess one thing and live another. One can easily fall into the trap of justifying one’s own sinful behavior by believing that if it’s okay for someone who professes to have faith to do it, it’s okay for him to do it. It is never okay to do what you know God says not to do just because someone else is doing it. Sin is sin and will always be sin even if the whole world does it.

We can keep our souls pure before God by not hanging around where sinners hang around. We should despise being in places where we know people are sinning openly. It ought to shame us to be where sin is displayed and promoted. When we hang around in the cesspool of sin, we will more than likely fall into it.

A pure heart takes charge of his soul. He refuses to compromise the truth. He refuses to expose his soul to the ways of the wicked. He surrounds himself with people who can help him stay pure instead of hindering him. He just says “no” to sin and means it.

CrossPs. 26:1 Declare me innocent, O LORD, for I have acted with integrity. I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.

The Lord does not condemn those who act with integrity of heart. We may not always get it right, but if we do what we do wanting to do what is right, God understands and honors our heart’s intent. He knows we are not perfect and does not hold that against us.

Now if we deliberately don’t do what is right, that’s another story altogether. There is accountability for those sins we deliberately sin against God. We are held responsible for willful sin. If you are a child of God and deliberately sin, are you not being spiteful towards Christ? It is defiance and should God let you get away with it? Of course not.

There is no condemnation for those who have an unwavering trust in the Lord. This means that we don’t fall into the trap of relying on our own wisdom or understanding or that of others. We turn to the Lord and listen to what He says. We acknowledge Him in all we do. We seek to obey Him because we love Him.

When our hearts are firmly set on the Lord, we know all is well with our souls and there is a peace that governs our lives that holds us steady and makes us strong. Satan may try to cast doubt on our souls but we stand firm because God declares us innocent. It matters not what Satan thinks or what people think; it only matters what God thinks about us.

Live with integrity of heart, trust in the Lord without wavering, and all things will be well with your soul both now and forever.
