Psalm 119:49-56 The Lord’s Day
by John Nunnikhoven from May 12, 2013
Remember your word to your servant, in which you have made me hope. This is my comfort in my affliction, that your promise gives me life. The insolent utterly deride me, but I do not turn away from your law. When I think of your rules from of old, I take comfort, O LORD. Hot indignation seizes me because of the wicked, who forsake your law. Your statutes have been my songs in the house of my sojourning. I remember your name in the night, O LORD, and keep your law. This blessing has fallen to me, that I have kept your precepts.
Lord, You, the God of All Comfort, have graciously and generously provided Your Word for my comfort and guidance. My heart overflows with gratitude, knowing that as I listen to the teaching of the Holy Spirit, I will live in the region of righteousness, peace and joy that is life in Your Kingdom.
One of my principal challenges is to come to You for wisdom and guidance in all situations, no matter how minor, before setting off on my own course of action. Lord, help me to learn this lesson.
