Run in the path of His commands.

Every one of the 176 verses in Psalm 119 speaks of God’s Word.  Each verses is a  testimony to the psalmist’s very personal engagement with God’s Word.  Each section of eight verses composes a prayer.

25 My soul clings to the dust;

give me life according to your word!

26When I told of my ways, you answered me;

teach me your statutes!

27 Make me understand the way of your precepts,

and I will meditate on your wondrous works.

28 My soul melts away for sorrow;

strengthen me according to your word!

29Put false ways far from me

and graciously teach me your law!

30I have chosen the way of faithfulness;

I set your rules before me.

31I cling to your testimonies, O Lord;

let me not be put to shame!

32I will run in the way of your commandments

when you enlarge my heart!

 

As I pray through Psalm 119 I’m reminded:

God’s Word is a gift.

God’s Word is a revelation of Him.

God’s Word draws me into His character.

God’s Word gives voice to the Spirit’s work in my life.

God’s Word shows me how much I need Him.

Oh Lord, I will run in the path of your commands

for you set my heart free!
