“I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.”
We see a purpose promised. “I will keep thy statutes”
The Psalmist makes a promise that he will obey the Word of the Lord.
Have we promised to obey what He says? Even when it’s not easy…
We see a prayerful plea. “O forsake me not utterly.”
He pleads with the Lord that He would not forsake him or cast him away.
We can rest assured today because God has promised us that will never leave us nor forsake us.
“Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”
We see this promise again in Hebrews as a reminder that we should be content with what we have.
“Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”
If we want the Lord to order our steps, we must obey His Word as we remember that He will not forsake us.
