What a sweet request we find in the verses for today. The psalmist asks the Lord to deal with him according to His love.
The truth is that we cannot wrap our minds around exactly what that means. We cannot fathom the depth of love that He has for us. Everything that He allows to impact us comes from a heart of love.
“I have done what is righteous and just; do not leave me to my oppressors. Ensure your servant’s well-being; do not let the arrogant oppress me. My eyes fail, looking for your salvation, looking for your righteous promise. Deal with your servant according to your love and teach me your decrees.” Psalm 119:121-124
When we learn His Word and understand His decrees, we see that everything that happens in our lives is first to bring us to salvation and then to walk in His path. Our goal is to one day stand before Him and hear the most beautiful words of reward that we can ever hope to hear, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
What a day that will be.
I ask You, Jesus, to guide my steps today and help me to respond to my world in a way that helps me to grow and helps others to see You.
