Psalm 119.41-42
Let Your steadfast love come to me, O LORD, Your salvation according to Your promise; then shall I have an answer for him who taunts me, for I trust in Your word.

LORD, my response, to all who challenge and taunt, has to be Your Word. This has to be the foundation for my answers to both spiritual and physical challenges. As You, Lord Jesus, responded to the devil after the 40 days in the wilderness with the Word, so must I do likewise. But Lord, I need Your help; I cannot remember the appropriate Scriptures. I need the Holy Spirit to refresh my mind.

Psalm 119.43
And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, for my hope is in Your rules.

Lord Jesus, keep the Word of the LORD in my mouth and seated firmly in my mind. Let all else flee, Lord, but not Your Word of truth.

Psalm 119.44-45
I will keep Your law continually, forever and ever, and I shall walk in a wide place, for I have sought Your precepts.

Your Word outlines the boundaries of that wide place. It is my heartfelt desire to walk there and to keep Your precepts ever before me. But I cannot do this in my own strength. I need to hear the Holy Spirit with the ears of my heart.
