It was the summer of 2010 when I put my summer reading aside and began an in-depth study of Psalm 119. I studied to know God...love God more.
Out of that study came twenty or so devotions I wrote.
Read Psalm 119:33-40
What does the Psalmist pray for in these verses?
Do I sincerely believe all wisdom comes from God or do I add in the wisdom of Oprah or Ellen?
Verses 33-35 Do I run to the advice of everyone else before I seek God and His wisdom.(Proverbs 1:7)
Praying with the Psalmist...
- Teach me the meaning of your Statutes
- Fill me with Your Spirit so I will always keep Your Testimonies
- Help me Lord to understand Your Instruction
- O Lord, may I take pleasure in the path You have set before me, helping me to stay on the path
I cannot just stand still or sit in a pew hoping my heart will be inclined to God's testimonies. I have to be intentional in my love for God's Word.
