Bible Reading: Ps. 119:121-128
Vs. 124. “Deal with Your servant according to your steadfast love, and teach me Your statues.”
Just writing the words “steadfast love” blankets my being with comfort. My Savior’s love for me never decreases either. Nothing I do lessens it neither. It never changes.
All may change.
Glory to His Name.”
Steadfast. Amazingly, God deals with me out of that steadfast love. Yesterday, a friend posted on Facebook this quote from Oswald Chambers:
“Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you may not understand at the time.”
God deals with me, His servant, according to that love. The Psalmist only pauses here. After the comma, he asks the Lord for teaching from His statues. That’s exactly how my Lord teaches me if I’m ripe for teaching. He has teachable moments ready all day long. My part is to be on the lookout for those moments and to choose “deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways I might not understand at the time.” Sitting in Idaho with a ninety-year-old, I want to balk,bawl, and bolt. Elder care demands selflessness. What lessons do you have for me here,God? Let me have a teachable spirit.
