Sunset over Mountains

March 19
Psalm 19

1The heavens are telling of the glory of God;

And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.

2Day to day pours forth speech,

And night to night reveals knowledge.

3There is no speech, nor are there words;

Their voice is not heard.

4Their line has gone out through all the earth,

And their utterances to the end of the world.

In them He has placed a tent for the sun,

5Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber;

It rejoices as a strong man to run his course.

6Its rising is from one end of the heavens,

And its circuit to the other end of them;

And there is nothing hidden from its heat.

7The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul;

The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

8The precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart;

The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

9The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever;

The judgments of the LORD are true; they are righteous altogether.

10They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold;

Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.

11Moreover, by them Your servant is warned;

In keeping them there is great reward.

12Who can discern his errors? Acquit me of hidden faults.

13Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous sins;

Let them not rule over me;

Then I will be blameless,

And I shall be acquitted of great transgression.

14Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart

Be acceptable in Your sight,

O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.


LightbulbTips on spending devotional time with God

There are many methods to quieting ourselves to spend devotional time with God. Below are several suggestions to approaching spending time with God.

  1. Set a time. We’ve all heard it said that it takes between 21 days to three weeks for something to become a habit. Set aside a time for devotions that will allow you to be consistent most days during your week. In the bible, most Christians spent morning hours with God—meeting God before meeting men. However, if the morning isn’t a convenient time, choose a time of day that will allow you to be consistent.
  2. Locate an area free of distraction. When Jesus spent time with God, He usually went off by Himself to spend quiet, alone time with God. We should follow His example. When we sit down to meditate on the word of God, we should do this without interruptions from the television and phone.
  3. Read God’s word. Reading God’s word during devotional time is beneficial for several reasons. Firstly, it allows us a subject upon which we can meditate; secondly, we are commanded in the bible to “put on the full armor of God.” That armor is the word of God. Thirdly, the reply we are waiting on from God can come in the form of scripture.
