Message of the Day: The More We Know God, The More We See Reasons To Praise Him!

I will praise You with uprightness of heart,
When I learn Your righteous judgments
.” (Psalm 119:7, NKJV)

With 176 verses, Psalm 119 is the longest chapter in the Bible. Every verse mentions the Word of God under one or another of these names: law, statutes, righteous laws, decrees, commands, precepts, word, ways (KJV, also testimony, ordinances), except vv. 90, 121, 122, 132.
It is an acrostic, or alphabetic, psalm. Its has 22 stanzas, each beginning with a letter of the Hebrew alphabet, in sequence. What is more, each stanza has eight lines, and each of the eight lines in a stanza begins with the same letter.

In a confident opening statement the psalmist expresses the happiness enjoyed by those who live according to God’s word. The psalmist then addresses God, praying that he himself will understand God’s word and be obedient in following it.

A good knowledge of God’s word is a safeguard against sin. This knowledge is obtained by asking God’s help in understanding his teaching, thinking it over and declaring it to others. Above all, the person must find pleasure in God’s word and have a desire to know it and practise it. The more one knows God, the more he sees reasons to praise him!

(Psalm 119:1-16)
