Your word is a lamp to my feet
and a light for my path.
• There is only a THIN LINE BETWEEN TRUTH AND DARKNESS ( Practicing YOGA and rituals than do not conform to the word of God / selecting MOVIES to watch). Do not get entangled into the pattern of the world.

It is clear that the writer of Psalm 100 is calling us to look up, and see the blessings of our God. Warren Wiersbe puts it well when he writes:
Some people are appreciative by nature, but some are not; and it is these latter people who especially need God’s power to express thanksgiving. We

PRAYING THE 23rd PSALM
Because Thou art my Shepherd,
I commit my needs to Thee.
Provide green pastures for me to lie in,
Lead me beside still waters.
Restore my soul when I’m empty,
Lead me in right paths for Your name’s sake.
Be with me in danger when I walk,

When a brand new believer in 1974, my friend loaned his LP Album by Messianic Jewish group "Lamb." When I married Marylu in 1980, I married into Lamb albums.

Psalm 51 (AD)
The only sacrifice you ever desired was done
On that rugged Cross by Your own holy Son.
In Your sight, I have sinned only against Thee.
The painful burden of that sin is ever with me.
If You took my life, it would be just and well.
You have every right to send my soul to Hell.
Psalm 119 repeatedly refers to the testimonies of the Lord (Meditate on these uses [Ps 119:99] - Especially ask how does the psalmist respond to God's testimonies?)
2 How blessed are those who observe His testimonies, Who seek Him with all their heart.

A PARAPHRASE OF PSALM 19:7-14

“The law of the Lord is without flaw, putting our soul back to wholeness.
The things the Lord reveals are unwavering, consistent in their nature, giving great understanding to the unlearned.
The basic principles God has laid out are right
David who wrote this Psalm was the greatest of all the offenders in human values. David broke five of Ten Commandments. 1) Thou shall not steal, 2) Thou shall not Kill, 3) Thou shall not commit adultery, 4) Thou shall not bear false witness against thy neighbour and 5) Thou shall not covet. And

IMPACT OF SCRIPTURE MEMORIZATION: PSALM 119
Scripture memorization is a great challenge to a modern day saints. But in the old days, many of the saints of God would memorize large portions of Scripture because they were devoted to God.

The Shepherd Psalm does speak against anxiety, worry, and fear. It calls for trust in God. Here’s an example of the wrong kind of faith.
