Read it! Psalm 119
I will obey your decrees; do not utterly forsake me.
Think it through
So now that we’re reading and loving the law, it’s time to actually do what it says.
I’ve written posts on obeying God’s laws before (this one springs to mind), and I mean what I write! So why, like Paul, do I clutter my own spirit with disobedience? Why do I do what I don’t want to do?
There are many answers to that question, but the one I want to focus on today is this: sometimes I’m not set up for it. I haven’t made decisions before go-time is upon me, and I’m making a (bad) decision in the moment.
