Turning Away from Vanity!

Turning Away from Vanity!

“Turn my heart to Your testimonies and not to covetous gain. Turn my eyes away from worthless things; revive me with Your word.” Psalm 119:36-37

The psalmist understands the state of the heart when being faced with the riches of the world when you are to make choices between the will of God and the very sparkling things of this world. It can be difficult to follow His will in certain situations, so from today’s bible verses, we can see that the psalmist went to the presence of God in prayers to find help and strength for his heart. Rare prayer!

We all need this prayer point for our lives to live the God-way in this world where the money is dominating and controlling. We need to pray to God at all times to open our understanding and teach us His will and ways (vs. 32, 33). However, as we pray to God, we need to submit and allow Him to work on our eyes, heart, and life.

Matthew 6:24 says, “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”

In the world today, people have more desire for money than they love God. It is very easy to follow every money-filled means than to follow the ways of God. In the sight of many, money is a symbol of power, honor, success, and glory. They value money more than God. The truth is that money can buy some enjoyment in this world, but it cannot buy you heavenly pleasures.

What is the advantage of buying pleasures that don’t last till eternity? Why would you prefer to invest your energy in things that will vanish in the end? We must always seek heavenly treasures rather than earthly vanities. Pray to God often, and He will guide your heart from such vainglory. Matthew 16:26 says, “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?”

Prayer:
1. Thank you, Jesus, for the redemption of my soul and giving me eternal life.
2. Lord, please give me the grace to follow your will in Jesus’ name. Amen!
