Read Psalm 119:33-40


Read Psalm 119:33-40

33   Teach me, Lord, the meaning of your laws,
and I will obey them at all times.
34   Explain your law to me, and I will obey it;
I will keep it with all my heart.
35   Keep me obedient to your commandments,
because in them I find happiness.
36   Give me the desire to obey your laws
rather than to get rich.
37   Keep me from paying attention to what is worthless;
be good to me, as you have promised.
38   Keep your promise to me, your servant—
the promise you make to those who obey you.
39   Save me from the insults I fear;
how wonderful are your judgements!
40   I want to obey your commands;
give me new life, for you are righteous.

Think

At school I could only remember things if I understood them, I guess that is true for most of us – we want to know the heart of things and not just the surface.  That's why I like this part of Psalm 119.  The Psalmist prays for understanding so that he will be able to put God’s laws into action.

Pray

33   Teach me, Lord, the meaning of your laws,
and I will obey them at all times.
