Is the Bible your handbook for life? Part 2

I challenge you to read and write down all that David says about God’s Word is Psalm 119. This is the longest chapter in the Bible and it is mainly about God’s Word. Here’s a small part:

Psalms 119:97-104 (KJV)
O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day. Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts. I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word. I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught me. 103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

Here David tells us that God’s Word made him wiser, gave him more understanding, and kept him from evil. The list I made had over 30 things, see how many promises you can find.

Psalms 19:7-11 (KJV) The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

Here David tells us God’s Word is perfect; it converts the soul; makes us wise; rejoices our heart; enlightens us; and is to be desired more than gold.

Do we seek after God’s Word more than we seek after riches?

We will not hide them from their children, Telling to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, And His strength and His wonderful works that He has done.
