Sorry for the late posting.......
Well, if I wanted to write out all the verses that stood out to me I could have copied and pasted almost the entire Psalm, but I won't do that.
" " Psalm 119:4
God has given us laws for our benefit that need to be followed. In verse 9 the question is asked "How can a young man keep his way pure?" The following verses answer the question:
Seeking Him (vs 10), keeping His Word hidden in our hearts (vs 11), allowing ourselves to be taught (vs 12), recounting the laws (vs 13), rejoicing in following the laws (vs 14), meditating (vs 15), and not neglecting the laws (vs 16).
In full, verse 11 reads, "I have hidden your Word in my heart that I may not sin against you." Taking this verse and the other 6 listed above, it is evident that it is only by the power of the Word of God that we can refrain from sinning. We will not be able to do this on our own strength. And, this is an everyday routine. We need to act out these verses on a daily basis.
" " Psalm 119:71
Nothing seems to make us more receptive to God than a little adversity. Adversity is not something I find enjoyable, but it is in the difficult times that we can look back after and see how much we have matured.
"Your Word, O Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the Heavens." Psalm 119:89
Eternal........something that is hard for me to fully comprehend, especially because we live in a "throw away" society. Our lives are short, perishable food even shorter. Even rocks and land are eroded away, but this verse promises the permanence of God's Word!
The second part of this verse tells us that God's Word is sanding firm in Heaven. It is reassuring to know that His Word stands firm and does not change or move. It is much harder and more frustrating trying to hit a moving target as opposed to one staying in the same spot.
" " (vs 101)
Sounds simple, but very important.
" " (vs 105)
This verse gives us believers confidence in knowing exactly what God expects from us. It is wonderful to know that God has given us this book for direction on our paths.
" " (vs 165)
To me that sounds pretty awesome.
This psalm is a good read and instills confidence in the Bible that we use as our guide for our daily walk.
