Psalm 119:10

With my whole heart I have searched for You;
Let me not wander from Your commandments.

-Psalm 119:10
(Translation by Jay E. Adams, in his book Counsel from Psalm 119)

Can you say with this psalmist, that you have searched for God with your whole heart? Is your prayer, the prayer that he prayed? "O Lord, don't let me wander from Your Word!"

In this blog, I hope to post daily (or nearly daily) posting from scripture. I don't plan on adding much of my own commentary, maybe just a statement or two; sometimes more, sometimes less. But if you would like to add some commentary of your own, or if you would like to share what a passage has meant to you, please feel free.

  1. I think this shows that David really understood himself--that no matter what spiritual experiences he had had, or his position as King, or the promises and prophesies over him and his life...that he was not above falling without God's grace. He prayed protection over his own spiritual walk. Like verse 67 says: "Before I was afflicted, I went astray: but now I have kept thy word." He is praising God that everything that comes to him, whether blessing or chastening, is for his good. I can say myself, that before I was afflicted, I really went astray. But praise God, "thou are good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes" Lord! (v. 68)

  2. Thankyou for your thoughts.

    I totally agree. It is like in Romans 8, when we hear that God is working all things together for good.
