MEMORY VERSE: Psalm 34:22 “The Lord redeems the soul of His servants, And none of those who trust in Him shall be condemned.”
HYMN: MHB 504 ( – LEAVE God to order all thy ways.
Condemnation is an act of pronouncing someone guilty after weighing the evidence. The Psalmist in our passage for devotion today reassured those who believe in the Almighty God that they will never be condemned as long as they make Him their refuge.
It is apparent that no one can condemn the Lord’s elect. Paul stressed in his letter to the Romans that, there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because they have been set free from the law of sin and death, by the law of the Spirit through Him (Romans 8:1-2). God condemned sin in human nature by sending Jesus Christ, His own Son (Romans 8:3).
The whole essence of the coming of Jesus Christ into the world is to save mankind from their sins and whoever refuses to believe in Him, has received condemnation upon himself/herself (John 3:16-19).
David wrote this Psalm when he feigned madness before Abimelech, who drove him away and he departed. Apart from escaping condemnation, the portion we are meditating on today enumerates other benefits the righteous derives from trusting in Jesus Christ the Lord and accepting Him as him/her personal Lord and Saviour.
They will experience God’s ever-abiding presence and saving power as David did throughout his lifetime (Psalm 34:18,20). They will be delivered from all forms of afflictions, persecutions, oppositions and condemnation by man (Psalm 34:19); Evil and condemnation shall be the portion of those that rise against them because the Lord will always fight for His people (Psalm 34:21-22).
Beloved, how is your walk with the Lord? Are you walking with Him in righteousness or you are yet to start? Please, make up your mind to walk with Him in righteousness and you shall not experience condemnation.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, I have read in your word that anyone who believes in You will know no condemnation. Give me the grace to continue to walk with You in righteousness so that on the last day, condemnation will not be my portion. Amen.
