Not My Own: A Sweet Truth

This morning I meditated on Psalm 119:94.

I am yours; save me,
for I have sought your precepts.

It has been following me around all day long. Here are some of my reflections:

We so often bristle when our autonomy is challenged. Our culture praises those who “pull themselves up by their bootstraps” and who owe nothing to no one. But God says to his people: “You are not your own, for you were bought with a price” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).

God will certainly take care of those who were purchased with the precious blood of his Son.

Seeking God’s precepts – that is, searching out the truth of God in his Word – is what the psalmist points to as evidence of being one of God’s people. God’s people seek out God’s truth in God’s Word.

I can’t think of a more wonderful thing to be able to say to God than, “I am yours.”
