Blessed is the Word, ד
Following God is a choice. Read Psalm 119:25-32.
I am laid low in the dust; preserve my life according to your word. I gave an account of my ways and you answered me; teach me your decrees. Cause me to understand the way of your precepts, that I may meditate on your wonderful deeds. My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word. Keep me from deceitful ways; be gracious to me and teach me your law. I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I have set my heart on your laws. I hold fast to your statutes, Lord ; do not let me be put to shame. I run in the path of your commands, for you have broadened my understanding.
Psalms 119:25-32 NIV
So many great verses here and yet what stands out to new today is the part of verse 30 that share how the writer has chosen to follow God. Following good is a choice. People don’t just fall into being obedient to God. They choose it.
Have we made that choice? Do we recommit ourselves to that everyday?
