Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

Psalm 119 not only is the longest of all the psalms, it is the one most closely associated with the Word of God, and our scriptures.

Teach me, Lord, the way of your decrees, that I may follow it to the end.
Give me understanding, so that I may keep your law and obey it with all my heart.
                                                 --Psalm 119:33,34 TNIV

Psalm 119 is the prayer, the commitment of the Psalmist to ground one's life in the words of God, the counsel of God, the ways of God. 176 verses promising to heed God's Word as the only true means to find the path through this world in which we all live.

Two observations: first, if we make such a commitment, we have to read, study, and know God's Word. Second, that's when the wisdom is before us, but there is no wisdom in our mind, only in our actions, in what we actually do. Walk this day in the light of God's Word.
