I have done what is just and right;
do not leave me to my oppressors.
122 Give your servant a pledge of good;
let not the insolent oppress me.
123 My eyes long for your salvation
and for the fulfillment of your righteous promise.
124 Deal with your servant according to your steadfast love,
and teach me your statutes.
125 I am your servant; give me understanding,
that I may know your testimonies!
126 It is time for the LORD to act,
for your law has been broken.
127 Therefore I love your commandments
above gold, above fine gold.
128 Therefore I consider all your precepts to be right;
I hate every false way.
God's rules are worth more than gold. Satan will try to convince us to believe that God's rules keep us from fun, but His rules don't restrict; they give us freedom. When we believe that His Word is right and choose to obey, we find life.
- Do you believe all of God's rules are good?
- In what areas are you doubting that His rules provide freedom?
- When was the last time you thanked God for the boundaries He's set for us?
