“May Your unfailing love come to me, O Lord, Your salvation according to Your promise;” -Psalm 119:41
Unfailing love. Steadfast love. Mercies. These are phrases used to translate this verse. The psalmist desires to see God’s love and mercy follow him all the days of his life. The treasures of salvation are: Jesus’ imputed righteousness, never-ending secure love, and fresh mercies each day. The promises of God are as certain as the rising of the sun.
“then I will answer the one who taunts me, for I trust in Your Word.” -Psalm 119:42
Our lives will testify to the good work God is doing in us and put our enemies to shame. Though you and I are not perfect, God’s faithfulness and power will help us live before men in such a way to silence their false accusations. If you are to be hated, let it be because you take up your cross and follow Christ. If our Master was mistreated, let us too be worthy of such honor.
Grace upon grace,
