Psalm 19:7, 8 
The instructions of the Lord are perfect, reviving the soul. 
The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. 
The commandments of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart. 
The commands of the LORD are clear, giving insight for living. (NLT)

The directions of GOD are plain
and easy on the eyes. (MSG)

A quick trip to the airport and a flight to see our curly-haired granddaughter is an hour away. A notification from the airline says our plane left its location a few minutes early on its way here. 

We need to dress, finish packing, load the car, hit the road, grab a parking shuttle, and zip through security. A short hop toward the east will follow. Our son will pick us up at the airport and our granddaughter has promised to give her grandmother a huge hug.

Crosby Stills and Nash sang a short song that became a hit back in the ‘70s. It was called, _Just A Song Before I Go_. Also before I go, I read God’s words carefully arranged for this morning and found in Psalm 19. The last line of verse 8 says,

The commands of the LORD are clear,
giving insight for living.

The Message paraphrase puts it this way:

The directions of GOD are plain
and easy on the eyes.

We need a helping handful of God’s instructions day by day. So before my buddy and I wing away, it’s good to pause for insights for living today. 

What is God saying to you?

I will seek God’s insights for living day by day.

Our Father, awaken me day by day with an expectation of new learning, growth, and development. Amen.

Daily D – 2 Kings 23:25

2 Kings 23:25 Before him there was no king like him who turned to the Lord with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his strength according to all the law of Moses, and no one like him arose after him.

Daily D – 2 Kings 20:1-6

2 Kings 20:1-6 In those days Hezekiah became terminally ill. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz came and said to him, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Set your house in order, for you are about to die; you will not recover.’”

Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, remember how I have walked before you faithfully and wholeheartedly and have done what pleases you.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

Isaiah had not yet gone out of the inner courtyard when the word of the Lord came to him: “Go back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of my people, ‘This is what the Lord God of your ancestor David says: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Look, I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the Lord’s temple. I will add fifteen years to your life. I will rescue you and this city from the grasp of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.’”

Daily D – 2 Kings 18:5-7

2 Kings 18:5-7 Hezekiah relied on the Lord God of Israel; not one of the kings of Judah was like him, either before him or after him. He remained faithful to the Lord and did not turn from following him but kept the commands the Lord had commanded Moses. The Lord was with him, and wherever he went he prospered. He rebelled against the king of Assyria and did not serve him.

Daily D – 2 Kings 17:12-15

2 Kings 17:12-15 They served idols, although the Lord had told them, “You must not do this.” Still, the Lord warned Israel and Judah through every prophet and every seer, saying, “Turn from your evil ways and keep my commands and statutes according to the whole law I commanded your ancestors and sent to you through my servants the prophets.” But they would not listen. Instead they became obstinate like their ancestors who did not believe the Lord their God. They rejected his statutes and his covenant he had made with their ancestors and the warnings he had given them. They followed worthless idols and became worthless themselves, following the surrounding nations the Lord had commanded them not to imitate.

Daily D – 2 Kings 13:4-6

2 Kings 13:4-6 Then Jehoahaz sought the Lord’s favor, and the Lord heard him, for he saw the oppression the king of Aram inflicted on Israel. Therefore, the Lord gave Israel a deliverer, and they escaped from the power of the Arameans. Then the people of Israel returned to their former way of life, but they didn’t turn away from the sins that the house of Jeroboam had caused Israel to commit. Jehoahaz continued them, and the Asherah pole also remained standing in Samaria.
