Another passage from Psalm 119.
Another Hebrew letter.
Another favorite word.
You know the routine.
Ah, but never let the study of God’s Word become routine!
Routine: a habitual, unimaginative, rote procedure;
dull or uninteresting;
Far from routine, true open-hearted study of the Bible is riveting.
Welcome to Week “R”!
Resolving to make wise choices,
I need You to wipe out my foes.
Renew me and keep me healthy;
away with those cocky bullies.
Restless, I watch for Your coming,
my eyes are worn out from looking.
Respond to me with love, O Lord,
and help me learn to trust in You.
Ready to serve, I need Your thoughts,
so I can grasp Your every word.
React quickly — now would be good,
for Your law is being ignored.
Really, I love Your words so much;
they are priceless, worth more than gold.
Reflecting on how right You are,
wrong paths have become disgusting.
