An excerpt from the book EDIFIED
Praise you for all you, Lord God, did in having your Revelation written down for us, in exactly the words you desired, then preserving it, getting it translated and giving us your Spirit to teach us what it says.
I love these words: “I run in the path of your commands, for you have set my heart free” (Ps. 119:32).
This is echoed in the NT: “You will know the truth and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32).
You, Lord Jesus, are the Path Maker, the Freedom Bringer, the Guidance Giver. Your Spirit and Word are the means to bring your freedom to us as we embrace your Way.
Praise you that in your Word you provide us with Truth, giving spiritual sight and being the Way to freedom from self, sin and Satan. Praise you for our weakness that drives us to be dependent and strong in you; for the path of your Word to run on; and for the working of your Spirit to keep us on track.
My desire is to live like the Psalmist who wrote, “My soul is consumed with longing for your laws at all times…. Your statutes are my delight; they are my counselors…. I have chosen the way of truth; I have set my heart on your laws…. I hold fast to your statutes, O LORD; do not let me be put to shame” (Ps. 119:20,24,30,31). Help me in that.
