Message of the Day: Love for God’s Word Produces A Sense of Urgency to Lead A Life of Obedience.

I made haste, and did not delay
To keep Your commandments
.” (Psalm 119:60, NKJV)

Psalm 119 has 176 verses. It 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

Today’s message is taken from v.v. 49-64. God’s word brings comfort to the suffering believer, but it also stirs up feelings of righteous anger against those who deliberately ignore God’s standards. However, the psalmist does not allow discouragement to overwhelm him. He gains renewed vigor from fresh meditation on God’s word.

Love for the word leads to enjoyment of God himself. It produces a life of obedience and prayer. He feels the urgency to lead a life of obedience. It brings hatred from the wicked, but the believer finds new friendship among those who share his love for God.
