I have chosen the way of truth:
thy judgments have I laid before me.
~ Psalm 119:30
Choosing the way of truth is not realized in mental assent only. He laid God’s judgments before him continually. He meditated in them. Spurgeon commented on this verse:
Men do not become holy by a careless wish: there must be study, consideration, deliberation, and earnest enquiry, or the way of truth will be missed. The commands of God must be set before us as the mark to aim at, the model to work by, the road to walk in. If we put God’s judgments into the background we shall soon find ourselves departing from them.
Paul charged the Philippians to think on things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, of virtue, and worthy of praise (Philippians 4:8). These must be the constant meditation of our mind if we are to discern the way of truth and walk therein.
