Let Your mercies come also to me, O LORD—Your salvation according to Your word. So shall I have an answer for him who reproaches me, For I trust in Your word. And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, For I have hoped in Your ordinances.
So shall I keep Your law continually, Forever and ever. And I will walk at liberty, For I seek Your precepts.
I will speak of Your testimonies also before kings, And will not be ashamed. And I will delight myself in Your commandments, Which I love. My hands also I will lift up to Your commandments, Which I love, And I will meditate on Your statutes.
Another section that focuses on the relationship between obedience and worship. It is a relationship of love expressed as adherence to our LORD's directions. As it often was with my earthly father; disappointment when I disobeyed but never surprised. Both heavenly and earthly father had a good understanding of the willfulness of their son.
Over time, 40+ years, I have grown in appreciation of this relationship. The Faith cycle continues to grow and flourish. Praise the LORD for His patience with a child of Adam.
