I have chosen the faithful way; I have placed Your ordinances before me.
The faithful way is simply following Jesus Christ. We are called to always have the word of the Lord before us. When Joshua was commanded to take the promise land, He was commanded to not let the book of the law depart from His mouth. We must spend time daily in the diligent study of God’s word. It is through the diligent study of God’s word that our lives are transformed for the Lord’s glory.
Those who seek after the world and its desires walk in foolishness. They view Jesus and His kingdom as foolish but they fail to see they are on a road to destruction. To seek after the world and its ways is to walk in darkness. Those who walk in darkness cannot see until the Holy Spirit opens their eyes to the truth. Let us praise God this day that we are simply saved by His grace and mercy. We have done nothing to deserve or earn this, but God in His grace has saved us.
