God’s Word—Our Life

Today's reading: Psalm 119:1-8 (Aleph)

Psalm 119 is a psalm I turn to often because it's all about God's Word. This long chapter (it’s actually the longest chapter in the Bible with 176 verses) is filled with encouragement and instruction to take in God's Word and then put it into action in our everyday lives. Psalm 119 is divided into 8 verse segments or stanzas, so that’s how we'll move through it, 8 verses at a time.

The first stanza titled Aleph, puts God's Word front and center in literally every verse. In my Bible, I've circled the word(s) used in each verse that represent God's Word.

  • Verse 1: law of the Lord
  • Verse 2: his testimonies
  • Verse 3: his ways
  • Verse 4: your precepts
  • Verse 4: your precepts
  • Verse 6: your commandments
  • Verse 7: your righteous rules
  • Verse 8: your statutes
Here’s the primary message I came away with from this opening stanza of Psalm 119: God's Word is life!
What stood out to you the most about God’s Word from Psalm 119:1-8? Based on this stanza, what are the benefits of knowing and keeping God’s commandments? What does this passage reveal about our need to read and study the Bible? Tami
