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