Psalm 16:1- Preserve me, O God: For in thee do I put my trust
Where do you put your trust? In man? In your money? If you answered anything except God, I think you may be missing out on some of your blessings. When we hear "Preserve me!" We may think of preservation as in, to hold true to where you are now. But we want to take it one step farther and say, preserve the integrity which is you. We all know that our lives are dynamic and things change, but who we are in Christ should only get stronger. We all know people change when we stop gossiping and start talking about finances, when we start to save, when we start to invest, when we start to accumulate assets and pay off debt, people can change.
Their perspective about life, love, and their faith may change for the worst. It is one of the many temptations that they speak of in I Timothy, which states, "But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.”
This causes them to err from their faith! So, to protect yourself and allow God to preserve you, you must put your trust in him, that no matter how much money you make according to his will, that you will promise not to trust in money and turn your back on him.
So once again, where is your trust? What are the qualities that you currently possess that you want God to preserve so you can show yourself a faithful servant?
Prayer: Lord, preserve my integrity and my faith in you to provide for me. I pray I don't fall into the snares that come with money temptations.
