A Heart’s Desire

“You are good and what you do is good; teach us Your decrees” (Ps. 119:68).
What God is, is good and what He does is good, and what He has authorized for us is good for us! There are many who ignore the evidence of God’s authority, not for a lack of proof, but for their own desires in this life. In Psalm 119:1, we learn that God’s statutes are a heritage and joy of the believer’s heart. But it may cause those not in Christ to question why it’s a blessing to live under God’s authority.
