Savoring Truth in Psalm 119 Part 3

17 Deal bountifully with Your servant, That I may live and keep Your word.

 By God’s grace, we live and thrive!  

18 Open my eyes, that I may see Wondrous things from Your law. 19 I am a stranger in the earth; Do not hide Your commandments from me.  

We are dependent upon God’s illumination to bring meaning to His revelation  

20 My soul breaks with longing For Your judgments at all times. 21 You rebuke the proud—the cursed, Who stray from Your commandments. 22 Remove from me reproach and contempt, For I have kept Your testimonies.

 Our longing for justice will only be fulfilled in the decrees of God

  23 Princes also sit and speak against me, But Your servant meditates on Your statutes.

 Calm in chaos comes from confidence in Christ

  24 Your testimonies also are my delight And my counselors. 

  If God said it, it is worthy of being rejoiced in, repeated, and respected.
