Psalm 119:17-20 (KJV)
17 Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may live, and keep thy word.
18 Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.
19 I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me.
20 My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto thy judgments at all times.

The Psalmist loved the commandments of God that he wanted to live a full life, just, so he could keep the law. His request is that the Lord would show him all the wonders of the law. His reference of being a stranger in the earth is symbolism of a pilgrim who needs direction. The commands and precepts of the Lord are his charters and guides to lead him on this earth. There was such a desire to know the commandments of the Lord that he felt his soul breaking. Why would this kind of desire consume a man’s life as if the commandments were the lover of his soul? In knowing the laws of God then you understand more about God. The commandments are like loving God with all your heart, mind, and soul. It is a love affair of communication and emotional stimuli. When you are in harmony with the laws of God then you have success and prosperity in all areas of your life. It is when you want to live your life aside from the law that you walk aimlessly like a wanderer having no direction. It is in the laws of God that you can live a life that is full of joy and peace amid a world that is full of chaos and despair. The Lord shared His written commandments to give direction but there are some unwritten laws of application that can take you on a journey that is amazing. It is a journey of increased faith and believing. It is when you can wake up every morning knowing that something amazing is going to happen today because the blessings are flowing from the lover of your soul. Receive your blessings and live the full life you are meant to live.
