Understanding

Today's reading: Psalm 119:97-104 (Mem)

The correlation between taking in and learning God's Word and having understanding and godly wisdom came across powerfully as I read Psalm 119:97-104. Four times in eight verses we see this relationship.

  • Your commandment makes me wiser than my enemies... (vs. 98)
  • I have more understanding than all my teachers, for your testimonies are my meditation. (vs.99)
  • I understand more than the aged, for I keep your precepts. (vs. 100)
  • Through your precepts I get understanding... (vs 104)

How have you experienced what is described and set out in the verses above? What's one example of how knowing God's Word equipped you to handle a situation with understanding and wisdom? Tami
