Deut 28; 2 Thes 1-2; Psalm 119:161-178
As we come to the end of Psalm 119, it may indeed feel like a tremendous accomplishment – it has been a long road.
But in the Christian Life we are always beginning and the Psalmist forcibly reminds us of this. In the End we are utterly dependent on the mercy of God, which is good news. The Psalmist does not rejoice in his steafastness, indeed as the prophet Hosea expresses his devotion to God – ‘it is like a morning cloud’. The Psalm ends not on a note of confidence in the righteousness of the one who prays, quite the opposite.
‘I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek out your servant, for I do not forget your commandments’
Faith as a mustard seed is enough
