When God’s Spirit Moves – Day 12: Nehemiah 9

You have performed Your words,
      For You are righteous. ...

I praise You, Lord God, for You perform Your words, You keep Your promises. You give power and life to what You say and all that You do and say is right and good.  Only You can know, only You can do, only You - and I worship You for Your omniscience, omnipotence and omnipresence.
But You are God,
      Ready to pardon,
      Gracious and merciful,
      Slow to anger,
      Abundant in kindness,
      And did not forsake them, (Your people). ...

God Most High, You pardon, You are kind, You don't fly off the handle, You are so gracious and merciful that You do not abjure, abandon nor abnegate Your people even when they leave You.

You gave your good Spirit to instruct them 
       and did not withhold your manna 
       from their mouth and gave them water for their thirst. ...

You are always before us, always in front of us and always ahead of us.  You always sustain and maintain.  Your very Spirit is our guarantee of Your Word.  

Here we are, slaves today!

Despite Your incredible love, provision and power, we still evolve into slaves apart from You.  We will only choose our destruction if we don't receive from You the vision, power and discipline You have for us.  I do not want to be slave to anyone or anything except You, LORD.  Holy Spirit, please instruct me in the proper care and keeping of me that I may be bound only to You.
