Bible Text: Psalm 119:9-16 |


What do you seek to get out of life? In the words of the Psalmist, “I seek you [the LORD] with all my heart.” For the Psalmist life is oriented around a pursuit of the Lord and His ways. Central to this pursuit? It is the Word of the Lord: living according to the Word of the Lord, hiding it in one’s heart, being taught by it, recounting it, following and meditating on it. The psalmist delights in God’s Word and will not neglect it. How does this relate to your life and mine? As God’s people, our lives are certainly to be oriented around His Word, and yet there are so many things that compete for our attention, our time, and even our devotion. Today we also remember Jesus, the Word that became flesh and dwelt among us: So passionate was He in His pursuit of us, seeking us with all His heart, He gave His life to make us His own.
