I am laid low in the dust; preserve my life according to your word. I recounted my ways and you answered me; teach me your decrees. Let me understand the teaching of your precepts; then I will meditate on your wonders. My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word. Keep me from deceitful ways; be gracious to me through your law. I have chosen the way of truth; I have set my heart on your laws. I hold fast to your statutes, O LORD; do not let me be put to shame. I run in the path of your commands, for you have set my heart free. Psalm 119:25-32 (NIV)
Path Of Life
Do you want your heart and mind to be set free? Do you want to live in freedom? Do you want to be guided and guarded away from the deceptive and deceitful ways that are in the world? Do you want to be lifted-up and encouraged when you feel like you have been knocked down and are lying in the dust? Do you want to receive hope and encouragement and joy when your soul is weary with sorrow? Do you want to be strengthened against all that this sin broken world might throw at you? Do you want to be able to know and live in the truth? Do you never want to be put to shame? Do you want to be able to run on the path of life with me? How could I not want all these things to be true in my life? How could anyone reject living this kind of life with you? Yes, I want all these things to be true for me. That is very good.
What must I do to live in this kind of freedom? How can I run on the path of life with you? How can I live in this kind of freedom? Meditate on my word. Take my word deep into your heart and mind and life. Allow my word to change your heart, transform your mind and guide your life. Allow me to teach you. Let me train you. My word will lift you up when you are down. My word will strengthen you when you are weak. My word will guard and guide your life. My word will prevent you from following the deceptive ways that are in the world. My word will help you to know and live by the truth. Take a firm grip on my word. Allow my word to take a firm grip on you. Then you will be run on the path of life with me. Will you meditate on my word? Will you take my word deep into your heart and mind and life? Yes, Lord, I will. That will be very good.
Lord, I will meditate on your word. I will take your word deeply into my heart and mind and life. I will allow your word to change my heart and transform my mind. Use your word to guard and guide my life. Help me to run on the path of freedom with you. Amen
