Today’s Reading: Daniel 6:1‐28, 2 Peter 3:1‐18, Psalm 119:129‐152, Proverbs 28:21‐22
Context: As mentioned several days ago, Psalm 119 speaks of the benefits of living according to the Word. Only three of the Psalms 176 verses do not contain a direct reference to the written Word of God.
Psalm 119:131 – I open my mouth and pant, because I long for your commandments.
Thoughts: What a graphic verse. I remember a hike I took several years ago. Towards the end of the hike, I ran out of water. I wasn’t able to think about anything but water. I literally panted. I longed for water. The desire for it consumed me.
Apply: “Lord, give me this kind of a desire for your word. Let me taste and see how good it is and understand how much I need it for life.”
Have you ever longed for the Word of God in this way?
