Last Day Thoughts

today's reading.
Psalms 119:161-176    Princes persecute me without cause, but my heart stands in awe of your words...

think about it.
How does the writer view or value God's words (119:161-164)? What do you gain if you love the law of the Lord (119:165)? How does 119:176 serve as a summary of the whole psalm? How do you think your view of God's Word has changed since you started this reading of Psalm 119? How would you share that with a friend?

the blog.
I thought it was fitting that as we wind up Psalm 119 the Psalmist talked about rejoicing and praising the Lord (vs. 162, 164, 171, 175). And when you think about it, that's definitely an appropriate response after all the wonderful things we learned from Psalm 119 about God and His Word. So praise away!

So how did you enjoy your time in Psalm 119? What did you learn? Did God impress anything in particular on your heart? (The highlight for me was all the verses about delighting in God's Word. That will definitely be my focus this coming week as I read my Bible.) Tami W.
