MEM

97 ​​Oh, how I love Your law!

​​It is my meditation all the day.

98 ​​You, through Your commandments, make me wiser than my enemies;

​​For they are ever with me.

99 ​​I have more understanding than all my teachers,

​​For Your testimonies are my meditation.

100 ​​I understand more than the ancients,

​​Because I keep Your precepts.

101 ​​I have restrained my feet from every evil way,

​​That I may keep Your word.

102 ​​I have not departed from Your judgments,

​​For You Yourself have taught me.

103 ​​How sweet are Your words to my taste,

​​Sweeter than honey to my mouth!

104 ​​Through Your precepts I get understanding;

​​Therefore I hate every false way.

 

It is my meditation all the day. Psalm 119:97

How would our daily life be different if we focused on God’s word all day? What if we allowed the word of God to help us make our daily decisions?

 

According to our passage in Psalms, God’s word makes us:

wiser than my enemies…. (v.98)

wiser than any earthly teacher…. (v.99)

wiser than any earthly elder…. (v.100)

 

The wisdom of the Lord through His word is a priceless tool! Don’t know how to handle a situation? Look to the word! Don’t know what to say to that person? Look to the word!

 

Taste the sweetness (v.103) of His word and realize the blessing that comes out of it.

 

Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Psalm 34:8

Pray and meditate over that last passage.  Look at the truth in that verse – the Lord is good and we are blessed when we trust Him.  How’s your trust in the Lord today?
