Psalm 119

Psalm 119’s theme is Praise to the Word of God.

As believers we need this today. Praise to the Word of God. We don’t need more programs, methods, or ceremonies, we need the Word of God.

“God is going to win. There will be more saved than there will be lost.” Charles Spurgeon.

“Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but incorruptible, by the word of God, which lives and abides forever.” 1 Peter 1:23.

“It is strange that of all the pieces of the Bible which my mother taught me, that which cost me the most to learn, and which was to my childish mind most repulsive- the 119th Psalm- has now become of all the most precious to me in its overflowing and glorious passion of love for the Law of God.” John Ruskin.

“Walked from Hyde Park corner, repeating the 119th Psalm in great comfort.” William Wilberforce.

Read this beautiful Psalm and look for these terms, “saying, way, testimonies, judgments, precepts, commandments, law, statues, and faithfulness.”

The Lord…

I called upon the Lord in distress: the Lord answered me, and set me in a large place. The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? Psalm 118: 5-6.

Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it comes. For the Lord shall keep thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken. Proverbs 3: 25-26.

Be Brave…

  “The first prayer I want my son to learn to say for me is not, “God keep Daddy safe,” but, “God make Daddy brave. “ And if he has hard things to do, make him strong to do them.”
      Son, life and death don’t matter. But right and wrong do. Daddy dead is Daddy still, but Daddy dishonored before God is something too awful for words.”
                                                                    Studdard Kennedy, Chaplain, World War II.

Good Point….

A Pastor who got tired of hearing reasons why people don’t go to church, have quit coming, decided he would quit bathing and gave the reasons why.

1. I was forced to as a child.

2. People who wash are hypocrites, they think they are cleaner than anyone else. 

3. So many different kinds of soap, I can’t decide which is best for me.

4. I used to wash, but I got bored and stopped.

5. I wash only on special occasions, like Easter and Christmas.

6. None of my friends wash.

7. I’ll start washing when I get older and dirtier. 

8. I can’t spare the time.

9. The bathroom is never warm enough in the winter or cool enough in the summer.

10. The people that make soap are only after your money.


I was regretting the past and fearing the future and I heard the Lord God say to me, “My name is I Am. If you live in the past it will be very hard for I Am is not there. My name is not I was. If you live in the future it will be very hard for my name is not I will be. But if you live in the present it is not hard for my name is I Am.”
