Psalms 119:55-56

55 In the night I remember your name, O LORD,    and I will keep your law.    This is a significant statement David is making.   Let’s be honest, Satan has a tendency to come at us (me) in a powerful way at night.   He accuses, he tempts, he pretty much screws with our (my) head at … More Psalms 119:55-56

Psalms 119:51-54

51 The arrogant mock me without restraint,    but I do not turn from your law.    How often do we do the opposite?   We are mocked by the arrogant, so we retaliate with sarcasm, or harshness.   I know I do, actually, I sometimes react with cheesiness.   What is the lesson from David in this verse?   He … More Psalms 119:51-54
