From Eugene H. Peterson’s Praying With the Psalms:
I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek out your servant, for I do not forget your commandments. ~ Psalm 119:176
We do not merely admire God’s word — we need it: it is that which saves us. It is this same word that “became flesh” in Jesus (John 1:14-18). It is not a word to revere in a church; it is a word by which we are rescued from daily sin.
PRAYER: Father, I love your word and cannot do without it. I have wandering feet and require much watching. Lead me and guide me in the name of Jesus “the great shepherd of the sheep” (Hebrews 13:20). Amen.
