As pants the hart for cooling streams

As pants the hart for cooling streams
  When heated in the chase,
So longs my soul, O God, for Thee,
  And Thy refreshing grace.
Why restless, why cast down, my soul?
  Trust God, who will employ
His aid for thee, and change these sighs
  To thankful hymns of joy.
For Thee, my God, the living God,
  My thirsty soul doth pine;
Oh, when shall I behold Thy face,
  Thou Majesty Divine?
God of my strength, how long shall I,
  Like one forgotten, mourn,
Forlorn, forsaken, and exposed
  To my oppressor’s scorn?
Why restless, why cast down, my soul?
  Hope still, and thou shalt sing
The praise of Him who is thy God,
  Thy health’s eternal spring.

says: Yea and all that will Godly in this world shall suffer persecution, plus; “Rejoice and be exceeding glad: for great your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. ”

Happily and humbly, I submit; in Jesus’s name, bc; i’m saved and sanctified the Bible way, he’s my elder brother and his Father is my Father ~sisteregina k



Hence, although Psalm 119 has much to say about the law, it does not speak about the law from the perspective of doctrine, but from the viewpoint of spiritual experience. This psalm was written by one who dealt with the law in the way of enjoyment. In this message and in the next, we shall look into Psalm 119 to consider how the Old Testament seekers of God enjoyed His law. Life study of Exodus Message 55.
