Your Delight?

today's reading.
Psalms 119:73-96    Your hands have made and fashioned me; give me understanding that I may learn your commandments...

think about it.
If you're faithful to God's Word, what effect does that have on others (119:74, 78-79)? The focus is very inward in verses 81-88; what changes at 119:89? How does God's Word reflect or reveal His character (119:89-93)? The Bible (God's Word) is often treated at irrelevant and not valuable to "real life"; how do you think this psalm answers that criticism?

the blog.
The attitude and approach of the Psalmist captured my attention as I read Psalm 119:73-96 (Yodh, Kaph and Lamedh). Two times in this passage he states that God's law is his delight (vs. 77 and 92), and in a number of other verses he tells us how God's Word has given him life (vs. 93) and that his hope is in God's Word (vs. 74 and 81). There's no doubt in my mind that God's Word is everything to this man and that it is truly his first priority.

So where are you in comparison to the Psalmist? If you're in alignment with him, would you tell us how you got to this point? And if you're not in the same place yet, take a few minutes to think over and consider why that is. Ok, now what can you do to get there? Tami W.
