Your hands made me and formed me;
give me understanding to learn your commands.
May those who fear you rejoice when they see me,
for I have put my hope in your word.
I know, Lord, that your laws are righteous, and that in faithfulness you have afflicted me.
May your unfailing love be my comfort, according to your promise to your servant.
Let your compassion come to me that I may live, for your law is my delight.
May the arrogant be put to shame for wronging me without cause;
but I will meditate on your precepts.
May those who fear you turn to me, those who understand your statutes.
May I wholeheartedly follow your decrees, that I may not be put to shame.
What wonderful promises God gives us in these verses:
Just as we trust he formed us with his own hands, we can trust that he will teach us how to obey him. As we meditate on God’s word, we will find his comfort and compassion.
And if we follow his commandments, we will not be put to shame.
Father, thank you for your comfort. Help me know better how to share it with others.
