4 Short Truths From A Long Psalm

There is a giant psalm. It is Psalm 119, one hundred and fifty verses in its entirety. It eclipses the second longest psalm, Psalm 78, by seventy-eight verses. 

The unnamed author of Psalm 119 is tireless in his praise of God's words and ways. He writes most knowingly of their power and benefit as ready and present in any moment of life.

This Psalmist knows well how to feed himself in the days of peace, and the days of calamity. It is in so doing he will not lose his way.

The Psalmist finds vast treasure and abiding pleasure in the words of God. He will not neglect them.

He wrote:

  • Your statutes are my delight; they are my counsellors. (V24)
  • How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! (v103)
  • Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. (v105)
  • You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in Your word. (v114)

Trust the Lord and His Spirit-filled words whether your spirit is buoyed or downcast, for He is the kind and truthful One
