The Word

Psalm 119:11  Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

Psalm 119:16  I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.

Psalm 119 is a good chapter to read over and over again, no it's a great chapter! It speaks so much of the word and how the writer loves it with his whole heart.This is one of those chapters you can read over and over and still get inspiration from it every time. Well every chapter in the Bible is that way! But here are just a few verses that stuck out to me as I set and read it tonight:

Psalm 119:67  Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.

Sometimes its good for a little affliction to come into our lives to keep us on track, keep us praying and seeking God. Lord if it takes affliction to bring our backsliders back then so be it.

Psalm 119:72  The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.

Cant no wealth, no riches of this world compare to the priceless value of Truth! Buy it for yourself, buy it for the next generation, and don't let go of it. Its far more valuable than anything else.

Psalm 119:104  Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

The word settles what is and isn't truth. So once I know what truth is I hate every lie that speaks contrary. I hate every false doctrine. Love everybody, but hate every sin. Love everybody, but hate every lie. Love everybody, but hate every false doctrine. If I am going be in love with truth, I must hate lies. See I cannot serve two masters, I am going to love one and hate the other. So I choose to love truth, for its more valuable than anything.

Psalm 119:165  Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.

Preach to me preacher, I wont get offended. Why? Because I love the truth. Because I want to be saved. Because all scripture is given by God's inspiration. And I have great peace and I'm not torn between serving two masters because I have truth, and nothing else could satisfy like truth does. For the word of God has set me free.

Psalm 119:127  Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.
Psalm 119:128  Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way. 

When you love truth, you hate the false way. Enough said. Psalm 119 is a GREAT chapter!
