Scripture: Psalm 119:121-128
I have done what is righteous and just; do not leave me to my oppressors.
Ensure your servant’s well-being; do not let the arrogant oppress me.
My eyes fail, looking for your salvation, looking for your righteous promise.
Deal with your servant according to your love and teach me your decrees.
I am your servant; give me discernment that I may understand your statutes.
It is time for you to act, Lord; your law is being broken.
Because I love your commands more than gold, more than pure gold,
and because I consider all your precepts right, I hate every wrong path.
interesting verse “It is time for you to act, Lord”. Feels like the author is anxious for the movement of God. I don’t believe he is trying to demand God to do something, but rather expressing a deep desire for God leading. I feels like he is growing more and more hungry for the Word of God and God’s guidance.
This really confirms to me to just keep going. Keep working at it. Be in the Word. Seek God in prayer. Keep learning. Keep seeking. Our desire for righteousness should in turn increase. Recognizing and hating wrong paths will become easier.
Lord you are awesome! God, as I continue to seek you, as I continue to pray and study your laws, I, too, want to see you act. I want to recognize when you are at work in my life and in things around me. Your word is more precious than gold, and I want to hate what is wrong. Give me wisdom and strength to do that. Thank you Jesus, amen.
Got one for this section today, just want to better understand verse 123 “my eyes fail, looking for your salvation, looking for your righteous promise. ”
Is he looking in the wrong things or places for God’s salvation, or is he just desiring God so much he is focusing hard on seeing what God is doing around him. For more study.
