Psalm 119 – Part 8B

Open Bible pic-widePSALM 119:57-64
 Hebrew Ch-Cheth

(Heth or Cheth)

57 The Lord is my portion; I promise to keep your words.
I entreat your favor with all my heart; be gracious to me
according to your promise.
59 When I think on my ways, I turn my feet to your testimonies;
60 I hasten and do not delay to keep your commandments.
Though the cords of the wicked ensnare me, I do not forget your law.
At midnight I rise to praise you, because of your righteous rules.
I am a companion of all who fear you, of those who keep your precepts.
The earth, O Lord, is full of your steadfast love; teach me your statutes!
Psalm 119:57-64, ESV

The other day we only got through verse 57, but we found out that our portion of the Lord includes ALL of His blessings; that our portion isn’t meager or small because God is a generous God who loves to bless His children. Today we’ll continue to see how God’s blessings work in our lives when we put His Word first and focus on Him.

In verse 58 the Psalmist requests God’s favor according to His Word, His promise. The King James Version says he is has sought God’s face. The Hebrew meaning of the word favor can be translated presence, countenance, or face. The Psalmist is seeking God’s presence each day to direct and guide him according to His promises. That’s what you and I should seek each day. It’s important to involve the Lord in your daily routine, in whatever you do each day. When you invite God’s presence into your life, you’ll experience more of His favor abounding in your life.

Notice in verse 60 that he says he won’t hasten or delay in following what the Lord shows him but he will be quick to keep, observe, guard, do what the Word says. He will be prompt to be a doer, not merely a hearer of the Word (James 1:22). How about you?

Activating God’s Word in your life only requires one thing: believe. Believe what He’s promised you and make His Word your declaration in faith. God will always back up His Word, so stand strong in Him and let His fullness fill you and those around you.
