Psalm 119:46-47

April 02, 2020

I will also speak of your testimonies before kings and shall not be put to shame, for I find my delight in your commandments, which I love.

"For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being," Romans 7:22 Why did Paul and the Psalmist who wrote the 119th both find delight in the Law of God? Is it not that it is within the boundaries defined by the Law that they found the righteousness, peace, and joy of life in the Kingdom? Is it not, likewise, that it is there that my life is satisfied, that I find freedom from anxiety and wisdom and discernment to direct my life? Yea and amen, it is so.

April 01, 2020

I will keep your law continually, forever and ever, and I shall walk in a wide place, for I have sought your precepts.

March 31, 2020

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

Psalm 119:38

March 26, 2020

Confirm to your servant your promise, that you may be feared.

These great and precious promises, Lord, must inspire a fear of You in me that is terror at being in the Presence of the Almighty while being awed at the Power of the Living God and being completely overwhelmed with the Richness of Your Love, Grace and Mercy. Absolute sensory overload.

Psalm 119:36, 37

March 25, 2020

Incline my heart to your testimonies, and not to selfish gain!

Lord, guide me into the proper priorities, seeking first Your kingdom and Your righteousness. Keep me from being concerned with my selfish desire, but direct me in serving my neighbors and into supplying their spiritual and temporal needs

Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things, and give me life in your ways.

Often times, Lord, I am tired and listless, not realizing that You are there to encourage and refresh. But when I shift my gaze from the trivial and temporal to the eternal and significant, that I begin to find life and joy. Righteousness, peace and joy is to be found in Your Word, it defines Kingdom living.

Psalm 119:33

March 23, 2020

Teach me, O LORD, the way of your statutes; and I will keep it to the end.

This has got to be heart learning, not head learning. Lord, teach me, transform me, make me totally new. It is impossible for me to live according to Your Word without such a transformation. I will not/cannot live so on my own. Teach me, Lord.

Psalm 119:25-32

March 22, 2020

My soul clings to the dust; give me life according to your word! When I told of my ways, you answered me; teach me your statutes! Make me understand the way of your precepts, and I will meditate on your wondrous works. My soul melts away for sorrow; strengthen me according to your word! Put false ways far from me and graciously teach me your law! I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I set your rules before me. I cling to your testimonies, O LORD; let me not be put to shame! I will run in the way of your commandments when you enlarge my heart!

Lord, as I watch the disintegration of the moral fiber of this nation, the very rottenness of the sin that is within Man come out, unfettered and unrestrained by Your grace, I am moved to tears for those who do not know You, fearful for their eventual end and moved to rejoicing and praise that You have provided a door into Your kingdom where righteousness, peace and joy reign.

Continue to lead me into the Kingdom and to speak fearlessly of its life to those who have not yet accepted the invitation. Guard my heart against the blandishments of the Evil One, the Father of Lies.
