Psalm 119:129-144

Monday! Monday!  Read Psalm 119:129-144 – Wonderful is both miraculous and supernatural – When one discovers that living according to God’s law is so much better than getting lost in the world’s way there is a joy and a desire to know even more. YOUR LAWS ARE WONDERFUL.  NO WONDER I OBEY THEM! (119:129)  As much as we know obeying God’s Word is the best way to live, we, like the psalmist, know we are prone to mess it up… Our psalmist does not hide from God when this happens, nor does he pretend he is without shortcomings.  We will be blessed to do the same and seek His mercy:  COME AND SHOW ME YOUR MERCY, AS YOU DO FOR ALL WHO LOVE YOUR NAME.  (119:132)  Jesus kept things simple for us, he summed up the law in two essential commands.  One is to love the Lord with all your heart, mind, strength and soul.  The other is to love your neighbor as yourself.  This is repeated in the gospel accounts of Matthew 6, Luke 10, and in the epistles of Romans 13, Galatians 5, and James 2.  Our psalmist heart is breaking for those around him who live in disobedience(119:136, 139), and ours should too.  These are challenging days, keep looking to the Word that saves!  YOUR LAWS ARE ALWAYS RIGHT; HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND THEM SO I MAY LIVE. (119:144)
