I dance to the tune of your revelation | Psa 119:65-80

Genesis 1_11FRIDAY
Reflection 5 of 55

Reflect/Receive

TetBe good to your servant, God;
be as good as your Word.
Train me in good common sense;
I’m thoroughly committed to living your way.
Before I learned to answer you, I wandered all over the place,
but now I’m in step with your Word.
You are good, and the source of good;
train me in your goodness.
The godless spread lies about me,
but I focus my attention on what you are saying;
They’re bland as a bucket of lard,
while I dance to the tune of your revelation.
My troubles turned out all for the best—
they forced me to learn from your textbook.
Truth from your mouth means more to me
than striking it rich in a gold mine.

YodWith your very own hands you formed me;
now breathe your wisdom over me so I can understand you.
When they see me waiting, expecting your Word,
those who fear you will take heart and be glad.
I can see now, God, that your decisions are right;
your testing has taught me what’s true and right.
Oh, love me—and right now!—hold me tight!
just the way you promised.
Now comfort me so I can live, really live;
your revelation is the tune I dance to.
Let the fast-talking tricksters be exposed as frauds;
they tried to sell me a bill of goods,
but I kept my mind fixed on your counsel.
Let those who fear you turn to me
for evidence of your wise guidance.
And let me live whole and holy, soul and body,
so I can always walk with my head held high.  Psalm 119:65-80  |  MSG

Lord Jesus, meet me in this journey through the Old Testament. Open my eyes to see you in unexpected places. And through all the muck and mess, lead me through this journey to the Abba’s arms.

  1. I just found out that the symbol you used to start off the blog has to do with “pregnancy” – is that relevant to the post?

    • Most everything is relevant, just not always intentionally so on my part!
