Pr. 8:33: “Hear instruction and be wise, and do not disdain it.”
When is the last time you read Psalm 119? I encourage you to make time to read it this weekend. Give yourself 15 or 20 minutes…enough time to not have to rush through it. It is really quite beautiful and it is very inspiring.
The author of Psalm 119 certainly did not disdain instruction, but embraced and delighted in it. I pray that this weekend, we would all long for the Word of God the way the writer of Psalm 119 did. I pray that the Lord would awaken within us a consuming desire for Him and for His Word unlike anything we’ve experienced before.
Lord, like the author of this beautiful Psalm, help us to become devoted to fearing you. Oh, that our only hiding place would be in You. As those who have found great treasure, Lord, make us to rejoice in Your word. Great peace awaits us when our hearts stand in awe of Your Word. Open our ears, Lord, to truly hear You in Your word; and then let the wisdom saturate us so that we will not just be hearers of the words, Lord, but doers. Let us be engulfed in Your presence, oh God, and to touch others with the light of Your truth. All praise and honor and glory be to You, our King and our Lord!
