“My lips shall utter praise, when thou hast taught me thy statutes.”
Supplication is often followed by praise. When a request we have made unto God is fulfilled, we should worship Him for His provision and grace. His Word tells us of His promises.
“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”
Many times throughout Psalm 119, we see an asking or reference to being taught from the Word of God. The previous two verses, before our text today, end with “according to thy word.” When our perspective and pursuit is according to what the Word of the Lord says, we cannot fail.
“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.”
Our voice unveils the condition of our heart. We speak what we know and believe. The more we are in the Word, the more our words will reflect the Word.
If we want the Lord to order our steps, we must speak our praise according to His Word.
2 Kings 17-18 | Ephesians 2 | Psalm 140
