Pocket Sized Thoughts – Psalm 119 – Part 6

Psalm 119:33-48 “Teach me, O Lord, the way of Your statutes” (v.33)

As the pilgrimage is continued, he finds that he is taught and is given grace to persevere against the enemies of covetousness, unjust gain, lust for power, etc. Eager desire for the truth of God stimulates us toward godly things and righteousness. He does not want to settle into the routine and staleness of religion, so there is an earnest plea for freshness to be always upon his lips and in his mouth (v.43). This gives godly confidence to freely speak to others, even those who may have authority over us without shame or fear (v.46). We love and delight in the law, because it comes direct from the Lawgiver. Knowing the source of the word and the fountain of life contained in it keeps us fresh in the life and power of Christ.

PRAYER :- “Lord, thank you that Your word teaches us the way of life.”
