Insights on Today's Reading
Today you will read half of the longest Psalm and the longest chapter in the Bible. Overall there are 176 verses divided into twenty-two 8-verse sections laid out in the order of the Hebrew alphabet. This Psalm is in praise of God's word and details its affect on the reader. A great prayer to pray before reading this Psalm or any passage of Scripture is found in verse 18, "Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your law." Pray that prayer before you begin to read this Psalm.
Psalm 119:1-88 - Wiersbe says, "...if God is to bless you, you must sincerely seek the Lord and not just study the Bible. It is not facts in the head but truth in the heart that makes you grow in the Lord." The question is asked how a young man can keep himself pure, vs. 9. The answer is to hide God's word away in your heart to avoid sin in your life, vs. 11. Watch for practical ways you can apply God's word to your life as you read each verse.
