Praise of the Scriptures According to Thy Word
The longest chapter in the Holy Bible - 176 verses - Psalm 119 stands as a magnificent testimony of the life-giving foundation and reviving power of the Word of God. Believers who rely on God’s Word can freely experience the promised blessings and benefits of studying, believing, and obeying the scriptures.
The Word of God believed brings
blessing (119:1), cleansing (119:09), strengthening (119:28),
quickening - live-giving power (119:50) and so much more. It is
everlasting (119:89), sweetening (119:103), guiding (119:105),
protecting (119:114), enlightening (119:130), purifying (119:140),
and truth-telling (119:160). For the entirety of the believers'
life on earth, it is a delight (119:77), it brings spiritual
illumination (119:105, 130), and it expresses the deep longing of
the ultimate completion of the believer's “salvation”
Psalm 119:1-2 - “Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord. Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart..”
Psalm 119:9-11 - “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word. With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments. Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”
