MORNINGTIME 2949
 
AT MIDNIGHT I WILL RISE TO GIVE THANKS unto thee because OF THY RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENTS. I am a companion of all them that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts. The earth, O Lord, is full of thy mercy: TEACH ME THY STATUTES. Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O Lord , according unto thy word. TEACH ME GOOD JUDGMENT AND KNOWLEDGE: for I have believed thy commandments. Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word. Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes. The proud have forged a lie against me: but I WILL KEEP THY PRECEPTS with my whole heart. Their heart is as fat as grease; but I DELIGHT IN THY LAW. It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes. THE LAW of thy mouth IS BETTER unto me THAN thousands of GOLD AND SILVER. Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: GIVE ME UNDERSTANDING, that I may learn thy commandments. THEY THAT FEAR THEE WILL BE GLAD when they see me; because I have hoped in thy word. I know, O Lord , that THY JUDGMENTS ARE RIGHT, and that thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me. Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant. Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for THY LAW IS MY DELIGHT. Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me without a cause: but I WILL MEDITATE IN THY PRECEPTS. Let those that fear thee turn unto me, and those that have known thy testimonies. LET MY HEART BE SOUND IN THY STATUTES; that I be not ashamed. Psalm 119:62-80.  The short version of all this is, "Study and learn this, until we meet again". The long version is, "It's far more productive to Walk With the Lord in the cool of the evening in your Prayer Closet, than trying to pack this all in in the middle of a very busy day". A Christian's Heart's Desire IS to spend time With the Lord day and night, especially when your Spirit is Quiet and Peaceful listening for, and to, the Lord. Whenever you can, Be Blessed.
