“I shall delight in Your commandments, which I love. And I shall lift up my hands to Your commandments, which I love; and I will meditate on Your statutes.” (Psalm 119:47-48)
Do you love the commandments of the Lord? No, we’re not talking about thinking in terms of “do” and “do not” but in terms of the very real gift of the boundaries the Lord established for all of us for our safety and true prosperity? Do you love the commands of the Lord? Learn to love all that the Lord has commanded, for in them you will come to see the heart of love which protects all those who are His.
Lord, teach me to love Your commandments. Take me deep within the truth of what You have revealed that I would meditate on Your Word and seek greater understanding. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I would now and forever abide in Your Word. Guide me, O Lord, that I would grow within me Your Word and the truth of Your commandments, living them day and night.
Lord Jesus, You have come not to condemn, but to free us from sin. You have come that we would learn to obey Your commandments, for they are at the heart of Your goodness. Guide me this day, Lord Jesus, that I would grow in wisdom and understanding. Lead me in the way of truth that I would now and forever abide in You and the revelation You give. May I be found wholly in You this day. Amen.
