Psalms 119: 43-45

43 And do not take the word of truth utterly out of my mouth,
For I wait for Your ordinances.  I’m not sure about this verse.   What exactly is David saying here?  
44 So I will keep Your law continually,
Forever and ever.
45 And I will walk at liberty,
For I seek Your precepts.

I thnk I have to look at these three verses as a whole section instead of breaking them up verse by verse.   David’s desire is to know God and His word, his request is to keep God’s word, (that he learned as a boy, and probably still learning as an adult) on his mind.   Did he keep God’slaw continually?  Well, the books of II Samuel and 1 Kings are a testament to David’s stregnths and weaknesses, so I know he didn’t keep God’s word continually.   His desire, however was pure.  He desired to keep Gods word and for the most part, his heart and desire was in the right place even though his mind and his libido were elsewhere.   So, what do I take away from this?   For this section it’s verse 45.  ” And I will wak at Liberty, For I seek your precepts.”  When I seek after God and seek after the deep things of God, I have liberty.   If my life is a reflection of God, and my goal is to be a person after God’s own heart, then I can’t and won’t be enslaved by the world- by Satan.    I will walk in the Freedom that God has given me.   That’s the lesson I take from this section.
