my tongue will sing of your word,
for all your commandments are right.            [psalm 119:172]


do you like being told you are wrong? do you like that feeling when, after 5 minutes of arguing your point, you are proven wrong? that self-will, that need to be right on your own will kill your worship, because God calls us to believe his word even when we do not understand. it is only when we repent of our self-will and turn to God as our King that worship begins to grow in our hearts.

Lord, forgive us for desiring our will above yours, and for placing our desires and priorities before yours. you define truth for us; teach us to live in worshipful submission to your word.
