What sense will this make? Will I have the sense to follow God’s desires and instructions for me today? Will I have the audacity to hope in God’s word? Will I have the courage to accept his discipline? Will I allow him to comfort my broken soul… to surround me with his tenderness? Will I have the sense to trust God? Will I delight in him? Will I defend God today in the face of haters? Will I be brave enough to call his enemies my enemies? Will I be unashamed to obey God?
The picture of the shoe is of a patented shoe-cooling invention. Essentially… air-conditioned shoes. Anyway, here’s Psalm 119:73-80:
73 You made me; you created me.
Now give me the sense to follow your commands.
74 May all who fear you find in me a cause for joy,
for I have put my hope in your word.
75 I know, O Lord, that your regulations are fair;
you disciplined me because I needed it.
76 Now let your unfailing love comfort me,
just as you promised me, your servant.
77 Surround me with your tender mercies so I may live,
for your instructions are my delight.
78 Bring disgrace upon the arrogant people who lied about me;
meanwhile, I will concentrate on your commandments.
79 Let me be united with all who fear you,
with those who know your laws.
80 May I be blameless in keeping your decrees;
then I will never be ashamed.
