“Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken Thou me in Thy way.” – Psalm 119: V37


Beloved, there are divers kinds of vanity—the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches, big titles are all equally vain things. A man may follow vanity if he is spending his life in amassing wealth, more than praying.
Unless we follow Christ, and make our God the great object of our life, everything else is “vanity upon vanity”. It is clear that there is much need of the first half of the prayer. “Quicken Thou me in Thy way.”
Let us admit it, we are so sluggish that the best motives cannot quicken us, apart from the Lord Himself.
What! Will not heaven quicken me? Can I think of the reward that awaits the righteous, and yet be cold? Will not death quicken me? Can I think of dying, and standing before my God, and yet be slothful in my Master’s service? Will not Christ’s love constrain me? Can I think of His dear wounds, can I think of Jesus, and not be stirred with fervency and zeal?
No mere consideration can quicken us to zeal, but God Himself must do it, hence the cry, “Quicken Thou me.” Our body and His soul unites in prayer. “Turn away mine eyes,” says the body: “Quicken Thou me,” cries the soul. This is a fit prayer for every day. O Lord, hear it in my case today. Amen! JESUS LOVES YOU. Start your day with Jesus.
Beloved, have a blessed day.
