JOD. Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments. They that fear thee will be glad when they see me; because I have hoped in thy word. I know, O LORD, that thy judgments are right, and that thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me. Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant. Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for thy law is my delight. Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me without a cause: but I will meditate in thy precepts. Let those that fear thee turn unto me, and those that have known thy testimonies. Let my heart be sound in thy statutes; that I be not ashamed.
“Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for thy law is my delight.” Isn’t this a powerful plea? Going a bit further into it, isn’t this plea a daring statement? Do I really, truly want to make the claim before the LORD, God, the Almighty that His law is my delight?
First, do I dare make such a claim if it is a lie? An outright lie to the Almighty God? Will I not be called to account before the Great White Throne for lying to the LORD? How can I be so foolish?
Second through Infinity, very simple if you’re a sinful man, according to the Word, I am foolish, I am a sinner, I have no qualms about claiming such a blatant lie to be a truth claim. I am stupid!
Forgive me, LORD, God, the Almighty. Bring me to You, I am washed by the Blood of the Lamb, fit to enter into Your presence.
