I stopped and prayed for the Lord to help me to break through my distraction. He did. Boy did He.
Look at Psalm 18:30 – 32. Notice how the way of God is described in verse 30 and how God makes our way in verse 32, blameless. I have read that before. I did not make the connection. God makes our path, our way like His, blameless.
My first thought is that was after I came to Christ, that He made my life align with His purpose. But the more I thought about it, the bigger deal it seems to be.
He makes all of my way blameless, like His.
Think about that. All that you, well I, have done, all the shame that I have accrued, gone, blameless. Like His way, because of His son’s blood, blameless.
For grins I just checked the Greek Old Testament, the Septuagint, the Greek word used to translate the Hebrew, blameless, appears in Ephesians 1:4, 5:27, Philippians 2:15, Colossians 1:22, Hebrews 9:14, 1 Peter 1:19, Jude 24, and Revelation 14:5, mostly translated blameless but also above reproach and without blemish.
We are completely blameless, past, present, and future. No shame. In His son.
One other thing. Note that it is God who does this. He girds me with strength, and makes my way blameless. It is not of my doing. It is His.
This is good news. This is the gospel in one verse.
