Righteousness Worth Craving
Righteous are you, O LORD,
and right are your rules.
138 You have appointed your testimonies in righteousness
and in all faithfulness.
139 My zeal consumes me,
because my foes forget your words.
140 Your promise is well tried,
and your servant loves it.
141 I am small and despised,
yet I do not forget your precepts.
142 Your righteousness is righteous forever,
and your law is true.
143 Trouble and anguish have found me out,
but your commandments are my delight.
144 Your testimonies are righteous forever;
give me understanding that I may live.
God’s Word is worth our time and affection. When all else fails, God’s Word never does.
- How do you think the Word came to save you? In what ways do you see the power of the Word, and how has the Word changed your life?
- In what ways do you find the comfort of God and righteousness of God in His Word? John 15:3 (AMP) says, "You are already clean because of the word which I have given you [the teachings which I have discussed with you]."
- How do those around you affect your impression of God’s Word?
