Verse of the Day, March 14, 2020
Psalm 119:47-48 KJV “And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.  My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.”
The psalmist really rocked the world in this very long Psalm. He consistently spoke of his love for the LORD’s statutes, judgments, ordinances, and commandments.
In these verses, in particular, the Psalmist stated that he will delight Himself in the LORD’s commandments. He even loved the LORD’s commandments. He lifted up His hands to the LORD’s commandments, which He has loved.
Finally, he will meditate on the Almighty’s statutes! Today, when people are told to keep the commandments of God, you can kind of feel a knee-jerk reaction from them.
Through the years, Christians have been conditioned to repel the commandments, but the Psalmist, the LORD, didn’t model this. He delighted in them, loved them, even praised the commandments.
And He also meditated in the statutes. Let us follow the acts of the Psalmist.
