Do good to your servant, and I will live; I will obey your word. Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law. I am a stranger on earth; do not hide your commands from me. My soul is consumed with longing for your laws at all times. You rebuke the arrogant, who are cursed and who stray from your commands. Remove from me scorn and contempt, for I keep your statutes. Though rulers sit together and slander me, your servant will meditate on your decrees. Your statutes are my delight; they are my counselors. Psalm 119:17-24 (NIV)
That is my prayer. What is your prayer? I want to see wonderful things in your word. I want to hear and see all that you want to show me. I will ask you to show me the wonderful things that are in your word. That is a very good desire and prayer you have within you. How will you be able to see wonderful things in my word? What will be your responsibility? I will meet with you in your word. I will hunger for your word. I will delight in your word. I will listen attentively to your word. I will meditate on your word. I will think deeply about all you have to show me from your word. I will put your word into practice. That will be very good.
What has my word done for you? Your word has changed my heart and transformed my mind. Your word has given me your thoughts to think, words to speak and deeds to do. Your word has been my counselor. Your word has been my guide. Your word has put the things of this short life on earth into proper perspective. This life is not all that there is. This life is like a snap of the fingers or a blink of an eye. I am just passing through this life. Your word has shown me that my true and everlasting home is with you in heaven. Your word has given me wisdom. Your word has taught me to number my days. How so? Your word has given my life a purpose. Your word has given me a passion. Your word has sent me on a mission. I want to be used by you. I want to bear fruit for your kingdom and bring glory to your name. I want to shine brightly for you in the darkness of this world. I want you to use my life to help lead others to you, so that they can also be able to follow you as their Savior and Lord. Yes, my word, has done all these things for you. Listen carefully to my word. Watch closely to all that I will show you. Yes Lord, I will. That will be very good.
Heavenly Father, I long for your word. I delight in your word. Your word has been my counselor. Your word has guarded and guided me through life. Open my eyes to see all the wonderful things you want to show me in your word. Thanks for speaking to me. Amen
