All In

David wrote Psalm 119 as an extended meditation on the Word of God.  As I have said before it is a place in the Word to which I return often.  Today was no exception.
All In
I was struck by David’s attitude in 119:145.  He cried with all of his heart for the Lord to answer him.  In the broader context of Psalm 119, it is part of David’s commitment to know and follow the Lord’s Word.  Multiple times David asks for help to obey.  Here he does so with all of his heart.

Think of it.  A man all in on obedience.  A man all in, but knowing that he is dependent on the Lord to enable him to obey.  He poured his soul out, all of his heart to God in the effort to follow Him.

Makes my paltry attempts at obedience look lame at best.
