Eyes Wide Open

Today's reading: Psalm 119:17-24 (Gimel)

When you read God's Word, what's your approach? Do you want and expect to learn as much as possible from it? I'm guessing your answer is like mine--"Yes!" So what's a good approach to take for this happen? Psalm 119:18 gives us a wonderful example. The psalmist clearly loves God's Word and desires to know and understand it more and better. So as he readies himself to take in God's Word, he specifically asks God to help him.

"Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law."

Is it your habit to ask God to "open your eyes" before you read your Bible? Read Psalm 119:17-24 again, but this time pray and ask God to open your eyes to something you didn't see before. I'd love to hear the outcome. Tami

The psalmist's determination to take in the Word is in the face of ridicule and scorn. Oh, that we would have that same determination.

Verses 19-20: a sojourner on earth is impoverished-yet we seek riches, the riches of the lord--this is how it should be for the believer.
