BLESSINGS AND RULES
From Psalm 119-The Living Bible
These verses are rules and reassurances for a new year of blessings and retaining the Lord’s
word. For many of us it is a time to re-assess your lives, recall the experiences of last year and perhaps resolve ongoing issues within difficult times. Perhaps, it can also be a chance to commit to changing lifestyles or make challenging life decisions.
Verse 61 says, ‘ …but I am firmly anchored to your laws.’, and 62, ‘At midnight I will rise to give thanks to you for your good laws and also in verse 65, ‘Lord, I am overflowing with blessings, just as you promised.’ What a strong faith to begin a new year with as worshippers requested life blessings so they can continue to obey their Lord. Then humbly, they confess to being pilgrims who need a map for instructions spiritually. They confess their grief and sorrow while asking for revival in their hearts and ask GOD to reassure them of His promises for them and to honor him and be revered by them. “In all our troubles, how he refreshed and revived us. Now we follow closely all that you say, you are good and do only good; make us follow your lead.’
Take note of such words as:
RULES AND REASSURANCES
REASSESS AND RECALL
RESOLVE AND RISE UP
REQUEST TO OBEY

REVERED AND REFRESHED
Mat God bless and enhance our spiritual hearts with increasing love for the year with loving kindness and overflowing blessings and God’s light in your lives.
