LORD, who may abide in Your tabernacle?
Who may dwell in Your holy hill?
He who walks uprightly,
And works righteousness,
And speaks the truth in his heart;
He who does not backbite with his tongue,
Nor does evil to his neighbor,
Nor does he take up a reproach against his friend;
In whose eyes a vile person is despised,
But he honors those who fear the LORD;
He who swears to his own hurt and does not change;
He who does not put out his money at usury,
Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things shall never be moved.
Read that verse over again.
It could even be a phrase.
No matter if it's one verse, one phrase, or one single word, Stop and think
about it for just a minute.
2. Why do you think you like it?
Have you been experiencing something in your life that resonated with this verse?
3. That's the Word speaking to you.
4. Pray and Thank God for this revelation and ask Him to make it clear how He wants to use it in your life
I was listening to Pastor Chuck's Commentary on this Psalm, and he said that President Thomas Jefferson was quoted saying that Psalm 15 describes the Gentleman.
I like that because as you read through the list, they are good solid godly characteristics.
To the single ladies, I encourage you to look for a man like this...
A man who walks blameless (upright)
Does things that are righteous.
A man who speaks truth in and from his heart...(read through it again and see if you can pick out the characteristics here)
How huge is that? In today's society, thankfully there are still men out there that are gentleman.
To the married women, I encourage you if you husband is like this: You got a good man.
If he is not, this is your new prayer list to pray over him. LOL Through prayer, God can do what seems impossible. Commit your husband over to the Lord, and watch God work. Hang in there.
Verse 5. I love that there is a reward here for being such a way: Never be moved.
Sometimes in the fleeting time we have on the Earth, we might not think that there are rewards for being righteous anymore. The world might mock you, tease and taunt you; however, the LORD our God has our back. He is watching us, strengthening us, and equipping us for everything that will come our way. He promises that we will not be moved: Like a lighthouse.
I encourage you to keep doing those things He says to do and keep building a godly reputation for there is both rewards in heaven and here on Earth.
