I Will Meditate On Your Word

Let's spend the next few weeks meditating on Psalm 119.  It is a great chapter and has so much for us to learn from it.

It is basically about following the laws, commands, precepts, statutes of the Lord and LOVING to do that.

I think at the end of this time of meditating on this chapter, we will certainly understand why it is so critical that we LOVE His law and LOVE obeying it.

Psalm 19 tells us all the things that will happen to us if we love His law and follow it.  Take a look at that before you start if you don't mind.

One of the benefits is a refreshed soul--now who doesn't want that???

1 Blessed are those whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the Lord.

2 Blessed are those who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart—

3 they do no wrong but follow his ways.

4 You have laid down precepts that are to be fully obeyed.

5 Oh, that my ways were steadfast in obeying your decrees!

6 Then I would not be put to shame when I consider all your commands.

7 I will praise you with an upright heart as I learn your righteous laws.

8 I will obey your decrees; do not utterly forsake me.

The questions to ask yourself--

1.  Am I living in light of this verse?

2.  Am I taking this scripture seriously?

3.  If I believe and hold to this scripture, what difference will it make in my life?

4.  What does this passage teach me about God?

Questions adapted from Tim Keller's book Prayer.

Have a great week.
