I hate people with divided loyalties,Psalm 119:113-120
but I love Your law.
You are my hiding place and my shield.
I find hope in Your word.
Turn away from me, you evil men,
so that I can observe the commands of my God.
Sustain me as You promised, so that I will live.
Do not disappoint me!
Support me, so that I will be delivered.
Then I will focus on Your statutes continually.
You despise all who stray from Your statutes,
for they are deceptive and unreliable.
You remove all the wicked of the earth like slag.
Therefore I love Your rules.
My body trembles because I fear You;
I am afraid of Your judgments.
Dear Heavenly Father, why do some think Your law is not good enough? Why do they place their loyalty elsewhere? I want my loyalty to be only for You. Your law is wonderful. You are my protector and hope. I want those who practice evil to stay away from me so I can live Your commands. Give me the strength You have promised, so I can live! Help me so that I will be free. Then I can give my thoughts to Your word continually. You hate those who go away from Your law. They are not trustworthy. You will justly remove them. Your justice increases my love for Your way. I fear Your judgements; I fear You.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
