Daily Light #64 ~ Foreigner In the Land

Psalm 119:17-19, 25-30, 32 ~ New Living Translation

Be good to your servant,

that I may live and obey your word.

Open my eyes to see

the wonderful truths in your instructions.

I am only a foreigner in the land.


I lie in the dust;

revive me by your word.

I told you my plans, and you answered.

Now teach me your decrees.

Help me understand the meaning of your commandments,

and I will meditate on your wonderful deeds.

I weep with sorrow;

encourage me by your word.

Keep me from lying to myself;

give me the privilege of knowing your instructions.

I have chosen to be faithful;

I have determined to live by your regulations.


I will pursue your commands,

for you expand my understanding.

  1. This is such a beautiful Psalm Rhen. My honey just mentioned that it is also the longest chapter in the bible. I did not know that or had forgotten. Beautiful pick though. I love the Psalms and when I was young and needed to read God’s word I would pic up the bible and reach Psalms. David was such a beautiful poet and song writer. Have a blessed evening my dear friend. Love you Joni


    1. Hi Joni–yep, it’s the LONG one, haha, so I’ve divided it up. David was amazing in many ways–I was reading the passage today in which he made a horribly fateful decision which cost him much, and yet God loved him faithfully and unfailingly. I felt a real connection to him. Have a blessed evening–you and your honey ❤
