My soul clings to the dust; give me life according to your word! When I told of my ways, you answered me; teach me your statutes! Make me understand the way of your precepts, and I will meditate on your wondrous works. My soul melts away for sorrow; strengthen me according to your word! Put false ways far from me and graciously teach me your law! I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I set your rules before me. I cling to your testimonies, O LORD; let me not be put to shame! I will run in the way of your commandments when you enlarge my heart! Psalm 119:25-32 (ESV)
Live The Life
Do you want to fully live the life that I have secured for you? Do you want me to teach you? Do you want me to train you? Do you want me to revive, refresh and restore you? Do you want me to guard and guide you? Do you want me to strengthen you? Do you want me to keep you from ever being put to shame? Yes, I want all these things to be true of my life. Yes, I want to fully live the life that you have secured for me. That is very good.
What will you do because you want to fully live the life, I have secured for you? What role will my word have in your life? What will you do with my word? I know that it is your word that will help me to fully live the life you have secured for me. I will live my life according to your word. Daily, I will meditate deeply on your word. I will allow your word to change my heart and transform my mind. I will allow your word to guard and guide my life. I will allow your word to revive, refresh, and restore me. I will allow your word to teach and train me. It is your word that will strengthen me. It is your word that will feed and sustain me. It is your word that will keep false thinking and speaking and acting far from me. Your word will keep me from ever being put to shame. So, I will allow you to use your word to do your work in me.
