Delighting in His Decrees



Our scriptures for this week are Psalm 119:9-16


How can a young person stay on the path of purity?

    By living according to your word.
10 
I seek you with all my heart;

    do not let me stray from your commands.
11 
I have hidden your word in my heart

    that I might not sin against you.
12 
Praise be to you, Lord;

    teach me your decrees.
13 
With my lips I recount

    all the laws that come from your mouth.
14 
I rejoice in following your statutes

    as one rejoices in great riches.
15 
I meditate on your precepts

    and consider your ways.
16 
I delight in your decrees;

    I will not neglect your word.




The questions to ask yourself--

1.  Am I living in light of this verse?

2.  Am I taking this scripture seriously?

3.  If I believe and hold to this scripture, what difference will it make in my life?

4.  What does this passage teach me about God?

Have a great week.
