During my “Read the Bible in a Year” program, I am now in Psalms. Last week I read Psalm 119 with new eyes.
The entire Psalm reflects on the power of following and trusting God’s Word as guidance for our lives.
This poetic reflection is the longest chapter in the Bible, and it contains rich meditations for us to dwell on. The writer pens so many words to ensure we get it--the importance of following godly direction.
The post is short this week and I am offering a challenge. You can call it homework if you like.
Read Psalm 119 slowly and carefully. Take note of the number of times the writer asks God to “teach me,” “give me understanding,” “revive me,” and uses the word “precepts.” (in the New King James Version).
God’s Word is the only icon of truth. No book of counseling or so-called wisdom from humans can give us the revelation the Holy Spirit’s words can.
I would love to hear your insights on how this living light for our path has inspired you. Please feel free to share your thoughts and download the meme below if you like.
