I have kept my feet from every evil path so that I might obey your word. Psalm 119:101 (NIV)
I love to meditate on your word day and night. You speak to me through your word. You meet with me in your word. As I draw near to you in your word, you draw near to me. Yes, I do. You are changing my heart and transforming my mind with your word. You are using your word to mold and shape me into the person that you want me to become. Yes, I am
Without your word, I would be lost and without direction. I wouldn’t know if I should start or stop or turn to the left or to the right. Your word has been my guide. You have used your word to change the course of my life. I would not have gone where you had me go if you had not directed me by your word. I would not have done what you have given me to do without you instructing me with your word. Your word has helped me to know your will and your ways. Yes, it has.
Without your word, I would be defenseless in life against the devil and all his attacks of evil. Your word has been my guard. Your word has turned me away from evil so that I could begin to follow and serve you. Your word has made me able to resist temptation and made me able to stand up against evil. Your word is the sword of your Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit has used your word to fight in me, with me and for me. Yes, that’s right.
Without your word, I would be left to my own thoughts ideas and understanding. I would have nothing to rely on other than myself. I would be living like a fool lost in the world without your word. Your word has allowed me to think your thoughts and do your will. Your word has filled my life with your wisdom. Your word has enabled me to understand what others cannot understand. Yes, it has.
Without your word, I would be able to accomplish nothing. All my hopes and dreams and aspirations would amount to nothing without your word guiding them. All that I would have accomplished without your word would crumble in dust and ashes at the end of this life. Your word has made me able to bear fruit for your kingdom and your glory. The fruit that your word will enable me to bear will last for all eternity. Yes, it will.
Without your word, I would be empty and without hope. Your word is filled with all your promises to me. Your word has shown me that you are in control. You have a plan. You have a purpose for my life. You love me. Yes, I do love you. You can and do take the good and even the bad events of life and work them into something beautiful in my life that will bring honor and glory to your name. Yes, I do and yes, I will. Your word has shown me that I can trust you and that is exactly what I will keep on doing. That will be very good.
Lord, I love your word. It is my delight to meditate on your word day and night. Your word has changed the course of my life. Your word has brought wisdom into my heart and mind. Your word has kept me from thinking, saying and doing what is evil in your sight. Amen
