Read: Psalm 119:25-32
25 My soul clings to the dust;
give me life according to your word!
26 When I told of my ways, you answered me;
teach me your statutes!
27 Make me understand the way of your precepts,
and I will meditate on your wondrous works.
28 My soul melts away for sorrow;
strengthen me according to your word!
29 Put false ways far from me
and graciously teach me your law!
30 I have chosen the way of faithfulness;
I set your rules before me.
31 I cling to your testimonies, O Lord;
let me not be put to shame!
32 I will run in the way of your commandments
when you enlarge my heart![e]

1. How does one “run in the way of your commandments” (verse 32)?
2. Verses 23 and 28 appear to refer to “tough times” in the psalmist’s life. How does God’s Word help during these times?
3. What benefits can come to those who consistently learn and live God’s teaching? Compare the “prayers” contained in verses 18, 22, 27, and 29. How will God use His Word to help us in daily life?
