Wherewithal…

Can a young man cleanse his way?
Can he become what he is not?
Can he know what not to say?
Can he consecrate himself?

Can a young man cleanse his way?
Can he move from death to life?
Can he keep darkness at bay?
Can he make a turnaround?

Can a young man cleanse his way?
Can he dare to take a stand?
Can he learn how to obey?
Can he understand the times?

Can a young man cleanse his way?
Can he see his purpose here?
Can he really learn to pray?
Can he start a revival?

David was a young man that loved the Lord. One day he committed a terrible sin and soon he found himself in a downward spiral. God sent a prophet to meet him, to make him understand the magnitude of his wrongdoing. David saw. He repented, but he still had to endure punishment. We all know David as a man after God’s own heart. He sinned, but his repentant heart, his desire to please God made him his legacy- he bares us his soul in the Psalms. We see a man that is wretched, a man that is joyful, a man that is troubled, a man that loved God. True repentance is a change of heart; a turning away from sin and toward God. Without the love of God, or without the love of His word, without the willingness to repent, we will never become a people after God’s heart.

‘Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way, by taking heed thereto according to thy word’. -Psalm 119:9
