Psalm 119:17-32

“My soul is consumed with longing for your laws at all times.” (vs. 20)

It would be awesome if this described me. Sure, I have my moments. But how often am a consumed by other things, distracted from the Word and ways of God? And yet in God’s Word freedom is found.

“I run in the paths of your commands, for you have set my heart free.”

Freedom. We don’t usually think of following commands as bringing freedom, do we? We think of freedom as doing our own thing. But God loves us, and His commands are for our good. And so, with His Word and Spirit and grace, we can follow His commands to freedom.

Today I choose to follow. Please teach me Your ways, Lord, and lead me.
