While completing an assignment for my Communications Studies I ran into averse that jumped out at me..
Psalm 119:29 Keep me from lying to myself; give me the privilege of knowing your instructions.
How often do we talk to ourself? Trying to convince ourself that what ever we are thinking, doing or saying is right. In some cases we are TRYING to convince ourself that a certain action and/or attitude is justified; these are the times we are lying to ourself and we are lying to God. Knowing His instruction is the means to keep us from lying to ourself.
The next time you realize you are in this deli ma, stop and seek God. Ask your self if this is what God wants you do....
