WE SAID, I. THE BIBLE LIGHTS MY PATH!
And a light unto my path.It is a lamp by night, a light by day, and a delight at all times. David guided his own steps by it, and also saw the difficulties of his road by its beams. He who walks in darkness is sure, sooner or later, to stumble; while he who walks by the light of day, or by the lamp of night, stumbleth not, but keeps his uprightness. Treasury of David by Spurgeon
II. IT HELPS ME TO KNOW HOW TO PLEASE GOD VERSES 106, 108, 112.
Verse 106. I have sworn] Perhaps this means no more than that he had renewed his covenant with God; he had bound himself to love and serve him only.
Verse 112,”I have inclined mine heart] I used the power God gave me, and turned to his testimonies with all mine heart. When we work with God, we can do all things.”
Two things we are here taught to pray for, in reference to our religious performances:
- ACCEPTANCE OF THEM.
“This we must aim at in all we do in faith that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of the Lord. What David earnestly prays for is the acceptance of the free-will-offerings, not of his riches, but of his mouth, his prayers and praises. The calves of our lips(Hosea 14:2), the fruit of our lips(Hebrews 1:14), these are the spiritual offerings which all Christians must offer to God; and they must be free-will-offerings, and we must offer them abundantly and cheerfully, and it is this willing mind that is accepted. The more willingness in the service of God the more pleasing it is to Him.” Matthew Henry Commentary.
2. ASSISTANCE IN THEM.
We must be as earnest for the grace of God in us as for the favor of God towards us.
