My soul is consumed with longing for your laws at all times (Psalm 119:20 NIV).
One of the best ways to find out what people are really like is to examine their deepest longings. What do you want more than anything? A new car? A better job? The psalmist of Psalm 119 wanted to feed upon God’s Word.
Once you have entered the world of God’s Law, you become filled with a longing to know more and more. It is a bittersweet longing, because you become more aware of your own imperfections. God’ forgiveness will become even more precious to you. What a wonderful journey it is!
Spend more time in the Word, and the secrets of His covenant will be revealed, opening like the petals of a miraculous flower. Let your soul be consumed with a longing for His truth.
