Delight at good fortune

If you inherited riches would you delight in your good fortune? Even so, as we seek God wholeheartedly and keep His wisdom close to our hearts, we too can delight at the way it works in our favor. Purity in life’s experience is not a natural human phenomenon but it does occur with the supernatural help of God’s word. – Teresa #rejoiceinHislaws Psalm119:9-16 (ESV)


How can a young man keep his way pure?

By guarding it according to your word.


With my whole heart I seek you;

let me not wander from your commandments!


I have stored up your word in my heart,

that I might not sin against you.


Blessed are you, O Lord;

teach me your statutes!


With my lips I declare

all the rules[c] of your mouth.


In the way of your testimonies I delight

as much as in all riches.


I will meditate on your precepts

and fix my eyes on your ways.


I will delight in your statutes;

I will not forget your word.
