Holding and Being Held

Rulers pursue me for no reason,
yet I am more afraid of disobeying Your instructions.
I rejoice in Your instructions,
like one who finds much plunder.

Psalm 119:161-162

Dear Heavenly Father, even though there are those who want to hurt me I am more afraid of disobeying You.  Your ways are more exciting than treasure.

I hate and despise deceit;
I love Your law.
Seven times a day I praise You
because of Your just regulations.
Those who love Your law are completely secure;
nothing causes them to stumble.

Psalm 119:163-165

Deceit is disgusting.  Your law is truth, therefore I love it.  I praise You for Your just laws. Thank You for the security Your laws bring.

I hope for Your deliverance, O Lord,
and I obey Your commands.
I keep Your rules;
I love them greatly.
I keep Your precepts and rules,
for You are aware of everything I do.

Psalm 119:166-168

Thank you for the sure hope of deliverance by following Your laws.  I will keep Your rules.  I know You are watching me.

I pray this in Jesus’ name.

God is so good.
