“My soul keeps Your testimonies, and I love them exceedingly.  I keep Your precepts and Your testimonies,
for all my ways are before You.”  (Psalm

Do you love the Word of the
Lord?  The Word of the Lord loves
you.  He has given You His Word, but do
you live that Word?  It is a very simple
thing, but hard to do.  Meditate upon the
things of the Lord day and night.  Be
guided by the Lord and not by the world. 
Know that in the Lord is hope and eternity.  Come then into His presence and see that the
Lord is always good.  Know His Word and
know Him.

Lord, I am often so busy that I do not have time for You.  What a strange thought.  You, who are eternity, renew me when I make
time for You.  Change my heart, O Lord,
that I would have priorities that are in line with Yours.  Give me a love for Your Word that I may abide
with You in all of my thoughts and actions. 
Guide me now and always to walk into the way of truth You have put
before me.

Lord Jesus, You have given many
instructions, and I often treat them merely as a Sunday School lesson.  You have called me to always walk with
You.  Guide me this day, O Lord, that I
would truly walk in the way You have established.  Mature my faith so that I may learn and grow
in the ways I need to abide in You.  Save
me from myself this day, Lord Jesus.
