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.

1 Thessalonians 2:19

For what is our hope or joy or crown of boasting before our Lord Jesus at his coming? Is it not you?  (1 Thessalonians 2:19 -- ESV) Three things mentioned here... "hope" ... "joy" ... "crown of boasting" ...  Hope - What does Paul have his sights set on?  Joy - What is it that brings Paul joy?  Crown of Boasting - That Olympic Wreath of Glory that is placed on his head?  It is these people. It is his children in the faith. They are Paul's Hope and Joy and Crown of Glory when Jesus returns. 

1 Thessalonians 2:20

For you are our glory and joy.  (1 Thessalonians 2:20 - ESV) Short and sweet verse at the end of chapter 2. Paul wants the new Christians in Thessalonica to know that ... in the end ... the thing that will lift him up the most and bring him the most joy

1 Thessalonians 2:17

But since we were torn away from you, brothers, for a short time, in person not in heart, we endeavored the more eagerly and with great desire to see you face to face, (1 Thessalonians 2:17 - ESV) "... we were torn away from you ..." If you go back to Acts 17:1-10, you can read about the quick departure from Thessalonica. But Paul wants them to know that the separation is only physical, he is still with them in heart and has a strong desire to return to them. His desire is to see them "face to face"...  What is interesting though, is that this is the first letter of Paul's. Paul has discovered a new way of ministry. Paul has had to adjust his preferred ministry, but we have all benefited from this new process of teaching to those that he cannot see face-to-face. This benefit has stretched through the centuries and has served to fulfill God's purposes of spreading the gospel to every nation on earth.
