Psalm 119:161-168 Peace and well-being floods my soul

161 Powerful people may rise up and persecute me but my heart only trembles in awe of Your miracle-wonder words! 162 Your steadfast promises are the source of my bubbling joy. Eureka! I rejoiced at the revelation of Your Word, I’ve discovered such a hidden treasure. 163 I despise lies, I simply cannot stand them and detest falsehoods, for I’m passionately in love with You and Your law of truth. 164 Help me to pause and praise You at least seven times each and every day. Let me pause and reflect upon how righteous and just Your regulations are, Your ways are simply perfect in every way! 165 The more I love Your Word, the more peace and well-being floods my soul. Thank You for the promise that I will never stumble around in the dark ever again. 166 I long for Your rescue, I wait expectantly for You to release more of Your salvation to me. Oh how I long to obey Your commands and do what pleases You! 167 I cannot describe how much I love Your ways; my soul is learning to guard and keep all Your instructions for I want to follow each and every one perfectly. 168 I long to follow and abide by Your counsel, for my life is an open book before You and my ways are fully known by You.

My paraphrased version is from the New Living Translation; the Amplified; the Message; and The Passion Translation.

Praying Psalm 119: 161-168 Peace and well-being floods my soul: Lord, I know that powerful people may rise up and persecute me, help my heart to remain steadfast and only tremble in awe of Your miracle-wonder words! Reflecting upon Your steadfast promises produce such a bubbling joy. Eureka! I rejoice and dance for joy at the revelation of Your Word; it is like I’ve struck gold for I’ve discovered such a hidden treasure! Almighty God, You’ve taught me to despise lies and I simply cannot stand them, let them never fall from my lips. Lord, please steer me away from every falsehood for I am passionately in love with You and Your law of truth. Let Your truth reign in my life forevermore! Lord, help me to pause and praise You at least seven times each and every day; let me pause and reflect upon Your righteous and just regulations, for I have learnt that Your ways are simply perfect. Thank You Lord that as I study Your Word I learn so much and fall in love with Your ways. Each time I read the Scriptures peace and well-being floods my soul! I’m so grateful for the promise that I will never again stumble around in the dark; that forever Your Word will be a light to my path. When I am overwhelmed and distressed I long for Your rescue; I wait with eager expectation for You to release more of Your salvation to me; I crave for You to make me whole. Abba Father, how I long to obey Your every command and do what pleases You. Words cannot express my gratitude, I simply cannot describe how much I love Your ways. Thank You for teaching my soul to guard and keep Your instructions. Lord Jesus, I desire to follow Your ways for each and everything you do is perfect; how I long to live out my calling and I endeavour to chase after my dreams with great passion. Holy Spirit, I long to follow and abide by Your counsel, come breathe Your breath of life. I pray that You’re please with me when Your gaze falls upon my life because it is an open book for You and my ways are fully known by You.
