"Blessed are you, O LORD;
teach me your statutes!"
Yesterday was Sabbath. One of my favourite days of the week. Our pastor started his sabbatical yesterday. So, we had a guest minister who preached on Psalm 119:9-16, on the importance of treasuring God's word. It was a very convicting sermon on how we need to be in the word regularly. The above verse is a short prayer. One of praising God by stating he is "blessed", but also one with a petition. The psalmist recognizes his weakness; it is God Himself who teaches us.
