Psalm 119:48

Psalm 119:48

“I will lift up my hands toward your commandments, which I love, and I will meditate on your statutes.”

The lifting of hands is an expression of worship, and a gesture of great esteem. The Psalmist lifts His hands, embracing God’s commandments, signifying his earnest desire to observe them.

One way to ensure that we obey is to meditate on God’s word. Rolling over a single verse in your mind and thinking about the myriad applications both vertically and horizontally is a fruitful exercise. Any time we can focus our attention on God for long periods is time well-spent.
