“Because You have satisfied me, God, I promise to do everything You say. I beg You from the bottom of my heart: smile, be gracious to me just as You promised. When I took a long, careful look at Your ways, I got my feet back on the trail You blazed. I was up at once, didn’t drag my feet, and was quick to follow Your orders. The wicked hemmed me in—there was no way out—but not for a minute did I forget Your plan for me. I get up in the middle of the night to thank You; Your decisions are so right, so true—I can’t wait till morning! I’m a friend and companion of all who fear You, of those committed to living by Your rules. Your love, God, fills the earth! Train me to live by Your counsel.” —Psalm 119:57-64 (MSG)
Devotional Thought for Today:
Our God fulfills every promise He made in His Word. He is gracious and kind to us, just as He promised. At times when our feet tend to stray, we must take a careful look into His Word and get our feet back on the trail. We must submit ourselves to God and allow Him to train us by His counsel.
