How I Love
Psalms 119:97-112 Oh how I love your law! It is my meditation all the day...
think about it.
How does the psalmist order his life by God's Word (119:97-104)? What advantages does this practice give the psalmist (119:98-100)? What place does God's Word have in how you order your day? In 119:111, the testimonies of God are described as a heritage; how do you gain that inheritance? What are you doing to pass it along?
"Oh, how I love your law!" is the bold proclamation of the Psalmist in Psalm 119:97, and this statement lingered in my thoughts as I read the remainder of the passage. So I read Psalm 119: 97-112 again looking at the reasons the Psalmist gave for his love of God's law. Then, I spent a few minutes mulling over and thinking about loving God's law and what that meant for me. I love all the things the Psalmist writes, and I added some of my own reasons for loving God's Word too. Things like--God's Word gives me reassurance and peace when I'm feeling stressed, and whatever my circumstance, it provides absolute comfort for my heart.
So what about you? Why do you love God's Word? And, how is that love displayed in your day-to-day life? Tami W.
