The LORD is my portion; I promise to keep your words…. I am a companion of all who fear you, of those who keep your precepts… I am yours; save me, for I have sought your precepts… I hold back my feet from every evil way, in order to keep your word. I do not turn aside from your rules, for you have taught me. How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way. 105 Psalm 119:57, 63, 94, 101-104

            Do I truly see the Lord as my portion and is it really my desire to keep His Word? Oh, may it be so! Am I seeking out those who fear You and keep Your Word as my companions? May it be so!   How does my life bear evidence that I am His and that I seek out His Word? Oh that my life would reflect a keeping of His Word and a shunning of evil.   Oh Lord it is my desire that You teach me and that Your Word would truly be my priority. It is only though Your Word that I get understanding and truly, may I hate false ways and cling to Your Truth!

            If I am out in the middle of a deep dark forest on a mountain at night, trying to get out, I would want a light, a map and a compass. If I were out on the ocean far from land on a dark moonless night I would want a light, a map and a compass. I would highly prized these and guard them as not to lose them. Oh, so it is with the Word of God. God’s Word is a Light, a Map and a Compass to enable us to navigate in this dark world and to lead others out. Guard His Word and keep His Word! Dear Father may I be an instrument of Yours to do exactly that— to rescue those in the darkness as You work in and through me. May this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son, Jesus. So bit it!
