The second prayer is similar to the first. I wrote this in my journal this past summer. It still rings true today. Actually, it might be more true today than it was this before. I like the strength of the words David uses in this Psalm. I like that David chose the hard no matter the consequences. I like that David turns to scripture and the law to enrich his relationship with God.
‘My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to Your word. Keep me from deceitful ways; be gracious to me through Your law. I have chosen the way of truth; I have set my heart on your laws.’ – Psalm 119:28-30
The best way for me to rely on God is to know Him. To know Him I must learn about Him. To learn about Him I must read His word. How logical and seemingly simple. It is a choice that I must make everyday. This should be my burning desire: to dive into scripture to get to know my Father. It’s not always an easy choice and it’s not always the choice I make but it is my desire.
