I’ve been reading Psalm 119 the last several days as part of my Bible reading during my time of “Coffee with the Lord” … Psalm 119, the longest chapter in the Bible, is a poem or song in tribute to the splendor, beauty, perfection, practicality and power of the Word of God. I picture it much like a huge, precious, beautiful multi-faceted diamond… each way you turn it and consider it, the facets brilliantly reflect the glorious truth of God’s word!!! Stunning! Sacred!! Spirit-inspired!!!
Here’s a prayer that the verses of Psalm 119 prompted today. The words are taken directly from the Psalm and I prayed them today…
“… O how I love Your law! You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in Your word! Away from me, you evildoers, that I may keep the commands of my God! Sustain me, my God, according to Your promise, and I will live! Do not let my hopes be dashed… Because I love your commands more than gold, more than pure gold, and because I consider all Your precepts right, I hate every wrong path!” Psalm 119:113–116, 127-128 NIV)
That’s the way I feel! That’s what I want, O Lord!!
Just sharing a glimpse of this wonderful Psalm – a song in tribute to God’s wonderful Word!!!
