Psalm 119:111 – Verse of the Day 3/2/13
Psalm 119 is the longest psalm in the Bible (176 verses). It is a wisdom psalm consisting of 22 eight-line stanzas that correspond to the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet. The psalm is an extended meditation on the Law of God, in which the author finds great delight. Because God sent His Son to obey the Law perfectly in our place, it no longer condemns us but instead is our guide to pleasing Him. True joy can only be found in a life lived according to the will of God.
Where do you look for guidance? God says that his commands are a blessing, but we often experience them as more of a burden. We are often tempted to look everywhere but the Bible when it comes to guidance on the most important things in life. As you pray, spend some time asking God to help you believe that His Word truly is trustworthy in all that it teaches about all aspects of life.
