You are just, O Lord,Psalm 119:137-138 NET
and Your judgments are fair.
The rules You impose are just,
and absolutely reliable.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you that your rules are like You: fair, just, and reliable. This fills my heart with joy.
My zeal consumes me,Psalm 119:139-140 NET
for my enemies forget Your instructions.
Your word is absolutely pure,
and Your servant loves it!
I am excited to follow Your rules. Why do some forget them?
I am insignificant and despised,Psalm 119:141-144 NET
yet I do not forget Your precepts.
Your justice endures,
and Your law is reliable.
Distress and hardship confront me,
yet I find delight in Your commands.
Your rules remain just.
Give me insight so that I can live.
I am no one special, but I will follow Your ways. They are consistent and they last. When hard times come, Your ways are a comfort to me and bring joy. I love You, Lord.
I pray this in Jesus’ Name.
God is so good.
