Psalm 119:55

[ 1 minutes to read ]

I have remembered thy name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept thy law.
~ Psalm 119:55

[N]ight is a dangerous, lonely time when all is dark and the world around you sleeps. It is a time when doubts and fears get their best grip. Night is a time when temptations haunt that could not get a foothold in the bright daylight. During these difficult times, the Psalmist has remembered the name of the Lord.

Those who forsake the good way are variously described as forgetting God (Psalm 9:17; 10:4; 50:22; 78:11; 106:21; Isaiah 51:13; Jeremiah 2:32; Hosea 4:6). The Psalmist resolved to remember God and particularly in those vulnerable times of night.

His secret remembrance resulted in keeping God’s law. His habit was to meditate on the Word at night (Psalm 119:148) and to give thanks to God at night (Psalm 119:62). All these are out of the public eye and ear. His secret devotion led to open obedience.
