Psalm 119:58 I intreated thy favour with my whole heart: be merciful unto me according to thy word.
My dad often would say that we are what we are as a church and as individuals because of God’s favor. He would also say that we don’t want to do things that would turn God’s favor away from our church or from our lives. He placed a high premium on the favor of God.
In this passage, the Psalmist says that he intreated, or asked and sought for, God’s favor with his whole heart. He, too, understood the importance of the favor of God in the life of an individual. This morning, might we understand that true success and blessing in this life comes by the favor of the Lord. Might we, too, intreat His favor with our whole hearts.
