Every one of the 176 verses in Psalm 119 speaks of God’s Word. Each verses is a testimony to the psalmist’s very personal engagement with God’s Word. Each section of eight verses composes a prayer.
25 My soul clings to the dust;
give me life according to your word!
26When I told of my ways, you answered me;
teach me your statutes!
27 Make me understand the way of your precepts,
and I will meditate on your wondrous works.
28 My soul melts away for sorrow;
strengthen me according to your word!
29Put false ways far from me
and graciously teach me your law!
30I have chosen the way of faithfulness;
I set your rules before me.
31I cling to your testimonies, O Lord;
let me not be put to shame!
32I will run in the way of your commandments
when you enlarge my heart!
As I pray through Psalm 119 I’m reminded:
God’s Word is a gift.
God’s Word is a revelation of Him.
God’s Word draws me into His character.
God’s Word gives voice to the Spirit’s work in my life.
God’s Word shows me how much I need Him.
Oh Lord, I will run in the path of your commands
for you set my heart free!
