Living the Word of God

Teach me Oh God

Ps 119: 33-40

33   Teach me, O LORD, the way of Thy statutes, And I shall observe it to the end. Teach me help me to learn your word. Observe: to do it not to look at it but to put it into practice. James 1:23-24

34   Give me understanding, that I may observe Thy law, And keep it with all my heart. Give me practical wisdom and understanding, to apply Your word, that I may do it and live it as reality in my life.

35   Make me walk in the path of Thy commandments, For I delight in it. Guide my lifestyle with Your wisdom and direction, I take delight and pleasure in Your words to me. Proverbs 4:11-19

 36 Incline my heart to Thy testimonies, And not to dishonest gain.

Help me to me lean in Your direction with all of my being. The heart is the center of being, Help me to say no to short cuts, Dis-honest gain, covetousness, jealousy, and rotten money.

37   Turn away my eyes from looking at vanity And revive me in Thy ways. Turn my eyes to look away from worthless and vain things. Things that are morally unsound or materially unsubstantial. Renew my walk with You. Philippians 4:8

Ps. 119:38   Establish Your word to Your servant, As that which produces reverence for You. Make Your word a reality in my life, with faithfulness give me a deep reverence and respect of Your word.

39   Turn away my reproach which I dread, For Thine ordinances are good. Forgive my waywardness and sinfulness, I despise my sin, but it is always with me. But Your ordnances and words of love and forgiveness are good news to me.

40   Behold, I long for Thy precepts; Revive me through Thy righteousness I long for Your living word. Revive me: Give me life through Your judgement and gracious help. Hebrews 4:12
