Be a Good Little Girl

by PamFord Davis  
4/09/2015 / Devotionals

Parents begin the molding process early.

"Pammy, you be a good little girl and play with your toys; Mommy needs to fix supper."

Teachers continue the process.

"Pamela, you did a good job; you stayed within the lines. I'm giving you a gold star!"

I want to be good. Positive societal influences have ingrained a desire for goodness in my psyche. Why is it that I fall so far from my goal?

"But we are all like an unclean thing, and all our righteousness are like filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6a NKJ)."

There is hope for someone bound by rags; the LORD robes us in His righteousness.

"I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness (Isaiah 61:10a NKJ)."

Apostle Paul grappled with his sin problem. He had an earnest longing to do what was right; yet, he confessed to repeated failures.

"For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am (Romans 7:22-24a NKJ)!"

Desperate, he sought intervention.

"Who will deliver me from this body of death? I thank Godthrough Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 7:24b-25a NKJ)!"

I do want to do right; when I do sin, I seek God's forgiveness.

"If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9 NKJ)."
