Psalm 119, Day 3

We continue our exploration of Psalm 119:105-112, meditating on the last two verses.

Your laws are my treasure; they are my heart’s delight.

I love that verse. It could be spoken only by a person who has turned to God in full. There is no fear of retribution or condemnation. Such a person understands that the law gives life!

Everything written about God, including God’s laws, paints a portrait of the one who first loves us, and who in turn becomes the object of our love and eternal gratitude.

Walking with God and having no fear, it’s only natural to want to treasure and examine what is of God. Would you fear exploring the varied and sometimes unusual objects in a beloved grandmother’s house? Of course not—they tell you so much about her, and what is important to her.

Let’s say the last verse as a prayer: I am determined to keep your decrees to the very end.

Amen!

Here are all our verses from the last three days:

Your word is a lamp to guide my feet
    and a light for my path.
I’ve promised it once, and I’ll promise it again:
    I will obey your righteous regulations.
I have suffered much, O Lord;
    restore my life again as you promised.
Lord, accept my offering of praise,
    and teach me your regulations.
My life constantly hangs in the balance,
    but I will not stop obeying your instructions.
The wicked have set their traps for me,
    but I will not turn from your commandments.
Your laws are my treasure;
    they are my heart’s delight.
I am determined to keep your decrees
    to the very end.
