Psalms 36:7-12, NASB
7 How precious is Thy lovingkindness, O God! And the children of men take refuge in the shad- ow of Thy wings.
8 They drink their fill of the abundance of Thy house; And Thou dost give them to drink of the river of Thy delights.
9 For with Thee is the fountain of life; In Thy light we see light.
10 O continue Thy lovingkindness to those who know Thee, And Thy righteousness to the upright in heart.
11 Let not the foot of pride come upon me, And let not the hand of the wicked drive me away. 12 There the doers of iniquity have fallen; They have been thrust down and cannot rise.”
I know I not only wanted to stay away from evil, and to know God more, but also to find my greatest delight in the Lord. I desired to go on to the last section of this passage starting in verse 7. I wanted my family and I to join the psalmist in his delight in the Lord.
As a Dad I will no longer watch such films nor allow my children to watch them in my home or in the theater. I am not making a few casual decisions here but being deliberate in pursuing something much greater. I want to enter into God's presence and goodness. I want my family and friends to put not attend this parade of secularism and embrace the love of God and His holiness.
The urgency of life is to make sure that we have moved on out of the arena of the wicked, have gone through the doors of His holiness and are delighting ourselves in Him forever.
