what i’ve read lately

psalm 119:135 – make your face shine on your servant and teach me your decrees (TNIV)

i find that I want the first part (God’s favor on my life), but I tend to ignore the second part (learning God’s ways). i wonder if the first part comes without the second part?

psalm 119:45 – i will walk about in freedom, for i have sought out your precepts (TNIV)

it seems that in order to walk in freedom (and one could argue, have God’s favor), i must be seeking God’s “precepts” … his ways, not mine.
