“By Your words I can see where I’m going; they throw a beam of light on my dark path. I’ve committed myself and I’ll never turn back from living by Your righteous order. Everything’s falling apart on me, God; put me together again with Your Word. Festoon me with Your finest sayings, God; teach me Your holy rules. My life is as close as my own hands, but I don’t forget what You have revealed. The wicked do their best to throw me off track, but I don’t swerve an inch from Your course. I inherited Your book on living; it’s mine forever—what a gift! And how happy it makes me! I concentrate on doing exactly what You say—I always have and always will.” —Psalm 119:105-112 (MSG)
Devotional Thought for Today:
God’s Word is a light to us as we journey along this long, arduous path of life. Although sometimes it looks like our lives are falling apart, He holds our lives together. As He teaches me His holy truths, He also garlands me with His promises. Though our enemies do their best to throw us off track, we are unmoved, we stay focused. God’s Word is our treasured inheritance, it’s ours forever, it is an indescribable gift, which makes us forever glad. We will always be committed to doing what He says.
