this blessing has fallen to me, that i have kept your precepts.

[psalm 119:56]


the power and comfort of God’s word move the psalmist to worship. it’s not that because the psalmist kept God’s precepts or followed His laws that he was blessed.

when we seek Him with our whole heart… when we live in the joy of obedience, we allow Him to deepen our relationship.


may we delight in the Lord himself over hopes of monetary gain.

may we find joy in meeting with Him over the hopes of a child.

may we seek the Healer over the healing.

may we believe that the ultimate blessing is God himself.
