Read Psalm 119:129-136

Monday

Read Psalm 119:129-136

119:129 Your decrees are wonderful; therefore my soul keeps them.

119:130 The unfolding of your words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple.

119:131 With open mouth I pant, because I long for your commandments.

119:132 Turn to me and be gracious to me, as is your custom toward those who love your name.

119:133 Keep my steps steady according to your promise, and never let iniquity have dominion over me.

119:134 Redeem me from human oppression, that I may keep your precepts.

119:135 Make your face shine upon your servant, and teach me your statutes.

119:136 My eyes shed streams of tears because your law is not kept.

Think

These 7 verses say so much.  Verse 129 reminds us that God's principles are so good that they could be described as full of wonder and beauty.  This beauty is so intense that they are kept, not just by the mind, but by the very soul of the believer.  So deep and wonderful that they are easily internalised.

Verse 132 also reminds us of something of God's nature: "Turn to me and be gracious to me, as is your custom to those who love your name."  It is not our holiness that gets God's attention.  It is our love.

Pray

119:134 Redeem me from human oppression, that I may keep your precepts.
119:135 Make your face shine upon your servant, and teach me your statutes.
