Psa 119:81 My soul longs for your salvation; I hope in your word.
82 My eyes long for your promise; I ask, “When will you comfort me?”
83 For I have become like a wineskin in the smoke, yet I have not forgotten your statutes.
84 How long must your servant endure? When will you judge those who persecute me?
85 The insolent have dug pitfalls for me; they do not live according to your law.
86 All your commandments are sure; they persecute me with falsehood; help me!
87 They have almost made an end of me on earth, but I have not forsaken your precepts.
88 In your steadfast love give me life, that I may keep the testimonies of your mouth.
Precious God in heaven,
Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for Your mercy in revealing Your Word and Your self to me. What a precious gift!
Your Word is such a comfort in sorrow. Your Word gives me hope and strength. Your Word assures me that, though You are eternal and Your Word is eternal, my suffering is not. Your steadfast love assures me that You will never desert me, and that You will be present, with me, every moment until I arrive home in heaven, to be with You forever.
89 Forever, O LORD, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens.
90 Your faithfulness endures to all generations; you have established the earth, and it stands fast.
91 By your appointment they stand this day, for all things are your servants.
92 If your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction.
93 I will never forget your precepts, for by them you have given me life.
94 I am yours; save me, for I have sought your precepts.
95 The wicked lie in wait to destroy me, but I consider your testimonies.
96 I have seen a limit to all perfection, but your commandment is exceedingly broad.
Father, help me to see beauty today. The sun rose today; that is Your gift, and an illustration of Your steadfast love and faithfulness. As certain as the sunrise and the changes in the seasons, Your steadfast love and faithfulness will endure forever.
I am in awe of Your majesty, Your sovereignty, and Your care for me. I love You, Lord God Almighty.
