Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | December 22, 2020 | LESSONS FROM PSALMS | I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments.

I made haste, and delayed not to keep [ I will hurry, and not delay, to obey ] thy commandments. - Psalms 119:60

I made haste, and delayed not to keep [ I will hurry, and not delay, to obey ] thy commandments. – Psalms 119:60
I made haste, and delayed not to keep [ I will hurry, and not delay, to obey ] thy commandments. – Psalms 119:60

Dearly beloved brethren, I praise God for you in particular, because you are a very wise person.
Pro 9:12 If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself:but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.
Please sustain your being wise till Jesus comes and always validate your being wise, with consistent right decisions , followed by prompt actions.
This is because, it is very very costly to know what is wrong and be doing it. There are consequences for doing wrong things.
In the same token, it is very very costly to know what is right and not doing right. There are steep consequences for knowing and not doing what is right.
The reasons for these active and inactive behaviors are: summarised in these two verses of the scriptures.
2 Corinthians 6:2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
Isaiah 55:6 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
I made haste, and delayed not to keep [ I will hurry, and not delay, to obey ] thy commandments. – Psalms 119:60
Now see these two practical instances.
1. Knowing and doing what is wrong and it’s consequences.
The rich man who knew God of father Abraham, but never sought Him, until he got to hell. His name was Davis. Our Lord, for the best reason known to Him, did not mentioned his name, but mentioned Lazarus.. Now , he is in hell for knowing and doing wrong things. He was doomed for all eternity.
Luke 16:19-24 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
2. Knowing and not doing what is right and it’s consequences.
On the other hand, see the governor who knew what was right but delayed, until the time was no more on his side. The consequence was that, he is now in hell, doomed for all eternity.
Acts 24:25 And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.
I made haste, and delayed not to keep [ I will hurry, and not delay, to obey ] thy commandments. – Psalms 119:60

You remember the parable of the ten virgins. Five were wise , took wise decisions and followed them up with wise actions.

Five were foolish. They knew what was right but failed to do the right thing. You know the consequences.

Matthew 25: 1-4 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
It was for this reason that made king David to make a firm and unchanging resolution to be doing right thing at the right time. Obeying promptly the commandments of God.
Psalms 119:60 I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments.
See this same passage amplified.
I made haste. Men are apt to put off their repentance—to delay it to a more “convenient season” The psalmist was not so foolish—he “made haste,” he says; and delayed not to keep God’s commandments. This was wise, for “now is the accepted time”
The malefactor, crucified with our Master and Lord on the cross, was also a wise person like king David.. He validated his been wise with prompt right action. The reward was that, he is now in paradise with our Lord Jesus Christ.
Luke 23:39-43 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
Beloved I am persuaded you are a wise person. Because of this, validate your being wise, by doing now, everything that shall help you to be fully prepared for the dawning rapture or eternity with God, in case, you are called to the other side, before the imminent rapture.
May the good Lord help you in particular to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.
I made haste, and delayed not to keep [ I will hurry, and not delay, to obey ] thy commandments. – Psalms 119:60
