I have not concealed Your righteousness within my heart; I have proclaimed Your faithfulness and Your salvation. I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth from the great assembly. Do not withhold Your compassion and tender mercy from me, O LORD; Your lovingkindness and Your truth will continually preserve me (Psalms 40:10-11).
Receiving G_d’s blessings in our life requires that we walk obediently before Him. When we are disobedient, the good that G_d wants to do in and through our life is hampered. G_d does not tell us His entire plan, He gives us snippets so that we not be overwhelmed and get lost in the details. When Abraham was promised an extremely large extended family, he was not told how it would happen just that it would which required faith and obedience. Through disobedience, a hiccup of sorts occurred that would cause future problems for Abraham’s lineage.
May I walk humbly before you today in all that I do (Micah 6:6-8)? I don’t understand everything about the Kingdom of G_d and that is by design; men and women throughout history have honored you and it was accredited for righteousness that played out in their families. It is not always possible to do what is righteous and not fail because “I am a human being” but you, O Lord, are from all eternity (Psalms 93:2). Your word is true even now more than 2000 years since it was first put in writing for mankind to read.
