The Old 119th: A Love Story
I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek your servant, for I do not forget your commandments. Yes, I do lose my way, but You, a most gracious Lord, call me back to You. You bring me back into communion with You and restore me to the fellowship of…
Let my soul live and praise you, and let your rules help me. Another verse emphasizing the connection between praise and right living. It is impossible for me to live a Kingdom life without the praises of God filling my mouth. Help me, Lord.
I long for your salvation, O LORD, and your law is my delight. Yes, Lord, I long for Your return but until then I am guided by Your Word along the King's Highway.
My tongue will sing of your word, for all your commandments are right. Lord, I must not hold in the glories and beauties of Your Word and the completeness of Your commandments. They must fill my mouth with constant praise. Let your hand be ready to help me, for I…
My lips will pour forth praise, for you teach me your statutes. Your statutes, those good and perfect and righteous statutes, those precepts defining life in the Kingdom of God, a life of Shalom.  You provided a ransom for my sins, a Guide for my life and promised eternal life…
Let my cry come before you, O LORD; give me understanding according to your word! It is one of Your promises, Lord, that the Holy Spirit will guide me into all understanding. It has been a continuous process and will continue into the future. Hallelujah! Let my plea come before…
Let my cry come before you, O LORD; give me understanding according to your word! Let my plea come before you; deliver me according to your word. My lips will pour forth praise, for you teach me your statutes. My tongue will sing of your word, for all your commandments…
I keep your precepts and testimonies, for all my ways are before you. Another statement that is in the future for me. A goal, a blessing to be realized, an object of prayer and discipline. I know that my ways are before You, when will I keep Your precepts and…
My soul keeps your testimonies; I love them exceedingly. The Psalmist is absolutely correct, there is exceeding joy in living a life of obedience to the Word of God.
Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble. Why? Because it is through Your Law that Your nature is revealed to me. I hope for your salvation, O LORD, and I do your commandments. It is hard to accept but true that obedience is a…
Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous rules. How I wish this were true, I struggle to remember to praise You throughout the day and it is spotty at best. I pray, Lord, that You will give me the gift of praying without ceasing, it is not…
I hate and abhor falsehood, but I love your law. An interesting recognition of the role of the Law as a tertium quid, the third thing that serves as an absolute standard. The underlying recognition that the Law represents absolute truth with no allowance for wavering, no weasel words. “Thus…
Princes persecute me without cause, but my heart stands in awe of your words. Your Word stands between me and persecution, scorn and derision. It is my bulwark against the evils of this world. Build my faith, Lord. I rejoice at your word like one who finds great spoil. What…
Princes persecute me without cause, but my heart stands in awe of your words. I rejoice at your word like one who finds great spoil. I hate and abhor falsehood, but I love your law. Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous rules. Great peace have those…
Consider how I love your precepts! Give me life according to your steadfast love. Life according to Your steadfast love is the only life worth living. Nay, more than that it is the only life. All 'life' outside Your steadfast love is a weak and flabby knockoff of real life.…
