The Lord is my portion; I have promised to keep your words. Psalm 119:57
As we enter a new year, we turn our attention to the wonderful gift of God's Word as our guide for life and testimony of his faithful love. Psalm 119 is an extended celebration of how God's word shapes, guides, and helps us in our ways. This stanza articulates our shared commitments to keep God's words in this new year. These commitments are essential to make on a regular basis so that we are suitably oriented in the ways that we follow God's will and desires.
