I’m tired this morning from staying up late. Oh to be like David who said, “at midnight I rise to praise you, because of your righteous rules.” Awaken my soul oh Lord, that I may worship you with gladness.

Finding joy has been difficult this morning. I am in Psa. 119. Can I say as David that I delight in God’s law? I think I can at least say that I delight in the idea that God is making me into a keeper of his law. Who am I, that I get to obey God’s statues? That I get to conform to his likeness. This is a blessed thought, he will not let me stagnate, but I will soon—today even—follow his laws better than I ever have. Make it true oh Lord.

Our people need a God-besotted man. Even if they criticize the fact that you are not available at the dinner on Saturday night because you must be with God, they need at least one man in their life who is radically and totally focused on God and the pursuit of the knowledge of God, and the ministry of the word of God.
How many people in your churches do you know that are laboring to know God, who are striving earnestly in study and prayer to enlarge their vision of God. Precious few.

— John Piper
