Kind David written beautifully his heart desire to God.
Remember your word to your servant,
for you have given me hope.
My comfort in my suffering is this:
Your promise preserves my life.
The arrogant mock me unmercifully,
but I do not turn from your law.
I remember, Lord, your ancient laws,
and I find comfort in them.
Indignation grips me because of the wicked,
who have forsaken your law.
Your decrees are the theme of my song
wherever I lodge.
In the night, Lord, I remember your name,
that I may keep your law.
This has been my practice:
I obey your precepts. ( Psalms 119:49-56)
Three things I am going to remind us :
1- God’s promise preserves our life
2- We keep remembering His name
3- We obey his command
I do not know about you, But I am really struggling to keep God’s command. His promise is to hold my life and maintain for His name. Of course I do my best to keep praising his name. Every day of my life. I have a notebook and I write what God has done for me for the day and thanking Him for Who he is. But , for me it is a good practice writing them down and remembering How Lord were God to me. Even I may sometimes look back to my sinful nature and have an itching on them. But I learnt to keep filling my soul with his words.
David sought God’s help. It is funny he also reminds God of his promises. I think , It is okay to bring your frustrating and tell God. like ” Lord, You have promised me to keep me safe, So; then , What’s happened ? ” . We see people forget your commands, They are not seeking your face. We see injustice shouting from every corner of our towns. Who is going to look after those? David says my task is keep remembering your name. My dear reader our task is keep remembering his name even in the face of Pain and injustice. Keep worshiping him even with all those bunch of wrong-doing or human mistakes. Open room in your heart and let God move in it. I am going to do that , I am going to obey God. I am going to keep loving my enemy and bring all my frustration at Jesus’ feet. The world slapping my face hardly ? I am going to be more humble. Because I know God’s promise guard my heart as I keep praying and thanking to Him and humble to submit his word. Are you willing to?
