Bits from Psalm 19

Just read Psalm 19 in The a Message, what a great way to start a day:

(Psalm 19:7-9, 11-14 MSG)

The revelation of God is whole and pulls our lives together. 
The signposts of God are clear and point out the right road. 
The life-maps of God are right, showing the way to joy. 
The directions of God are plain and easy on the eyes. 

God ’s reputation is twenty-four-carat gold, with a lifetime guarantee. 

The decisions of God are accurate down to the nth degree and there’s more: 
God’s Word warns us of danger and directs us to hidden treasure. 
Otherwise how will we find our way? 
Or know when we play the fool? 
Clean the slate, God, so we can start the day fresh! 
Keep me from stupid sins, from thinking I can take over your work; Then I can start this day sun-washed, scrubbed clean of the grime of sin. These are the words in my mouth; these are what I chew on and pray. Accept them when I place them on the morning altar, O God, Rock, God.
