Teach me your decrees, O Lord; I will keep them to the end.
34 Give me understanding and I will obey your instructions;
I will put them into practice with all my heart.
35 Make me walk along the path of your commands,
for that is where my happiness is found.
36 Give me an eagerness for your laws rather than a love for money!
37 Turn my eyes from worthless things, and give me life through your word.
38 Reassure me of your promise, made to those who fear you.
39 Help me abandon my shameful ways; for your regulations are good.
40 I long to obey your commandments!
Renew my life with your goodness. Psalm 119:33-40 (NLT)
Psalm 119 isn’t read too often, except in short bursts like this. It is the longest chapter in the Bible with 176 verses. We are just too weak to read all of those in one setting! (Do you hear the challenge?) But Psalm 119 is a great chapter to read because it speaks to me about God’s commands and principles and why each one of them is important. I am encouraged to take time to meditate on God’s Word no matter how long it may be. It is a light that illuminates the path I am walking.
Spend some time today in Psalm 119. Wander its words and dig for those nuggets of gold that just may be what you are searching for.
