The LORD Is My Portion

Psalm 119:57-64

57 The LORD is my portion;
I promise to keep your words.
58 I implore your favor with all my heart;
be gracious to me according to your promise.
59 When I think of your ways,
I turn my feet to your decrees;
60 I hurry and do not delay
to keep your commandments.
61 Though the cords of the wicked ensnare me,
I do not forget your law.
62 At midnight I rise to praise you,
because of your righteous ordinances.
63 I am a companion of all who fear you,
of those who keep your precepts.
64 The earth, O LORD, is full of your steadfast love;
teach me your statutes.”  NRSV

This Psalmist leaves no doubt about to whom his heart belongs. It belongs to God. His life is focused on living by the “ordinances” of God. His very purpose for living is in service to God.

I know I have a long way still to go to reflect this kind of faithfulness and allegiance to God, but I’m trying. How about you?

Be a blessing to someone today!
