I’m tired this morning from staying up late. Oh to be like David who said, “at midnight I rise to praise you, because of your righteous rules.” Awaken my soul oh Lord, that I may worship you with gladness.

Finding joy has been difficult this morning. I am in Psa. 119. Can I say as David that I delight in God’s law? I think I can at least say that I delight in the idea that God is making me into a keeper of his law. Who am I, that I get to obey God’s statues? That I get to conform to his likeness. This is a blessed thought, he will not let me stagnate, but I will soon—today even—follow his laws better than I ever have. Make it true oh Lord.

It is by the mixture of counterfeit religion with true, not discerned and distinguished, that the devil has had his greatest advantage against the cause and kingdom of Christ … I have seen the devil prevail the same way, against two great revivings of religion in this country. Satan goes on with mankind, as he began with them.

— Jonathan Edwards
