Psalm 119 is one of my favorite passages in scripture. The entire chapter is devoted to loving God's Law. Today I want to pick out some specific ones to meditate upon.
Of course we know that when we hide God's Word in our hearts it helps us not to sin against him. Psalm 119:11, " 11Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
16I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.
17Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may live, and keep thy word.
28My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according unto thy word.
38Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear.
41Let thy mercies come also unto me, O LORD, even thy salvation, according to thy word.
42So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me: for I trust in thy word.
43And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I have hoped in thy judgments.
58I intreated thy favour with my whole heart: be merciful unto me according to thy word.
67Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.
74They that fear thee will be glad when they see me; because I have hoped in thy word.
76Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant.
81My soul fainteth for thy salvation: but I hope in thy word.
82Mine eyes fail for thy word, saying, When wilt thou comfort me?
103How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
105Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
107I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD, according unto thy word.
114Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.
116Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope.
123Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, and for the word of thy righteousness.
130The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.
140Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.
147I prevented the dawning of the morning, and cried: I hoped in thy word.
148Mine eyes prevent the night watches, that I might meditate in thy word.
154Plead my cause, and deliver me: quicken me according to thy word.
160Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.
162I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.
169Let my cry come near before thee, O LORD: give me understanding according to thy word.
170Let my supplication come before thee: deliver me according to thy word.
Did you notice that out of the entire chapter 119, which is the longest chapter in the Bible, that he mentions the word WORD so many times? Did you also know that ever verse in that chapter IS about God's Word, but uses different vocabulary words to describe His Word. These were just the ones that used that WORD.
Other words to ponder as you read this chapter:
"Father I thank you for your Word, Law, Statutes, for they all have directed us to or need for your Son. Thank you for Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Thank you for the freedom He gave us from the law and the curses for not obeying the Law 100%. Thank you for understanding we are flawed humans and for the grace you have extended to us."For more praise and worship, come join us at GGM.
